I didn't know that was possible!

All of the tips this week are ones that many people don't know about. They are tips and tools so handy and awesome, that once you know about them, they are sure to blow your mind!!

1) Google Docs accessible from TWO places in Drive!

Shift + Z

Have you ever wanted to file a Google Doc in more than one folder in your drive without making a copy? Now you can! Click on the file you want to have in a second location, press Shift + Z, and an "Add Here" dialog box will open. Select the folder you want to add the file to and the same file will now be in two locations!!

2) See your desktop instantly, no matter how many windows you have open!

Show Desktop Button

I have a bad habit of having way too many programs and windows open at the same time. When this happens and I need to see my desktop, it can be a pain to minimize each window. Fortunately there is a button in the bottom right corner of your screen that automatically minimizes everything instantly!

Google Keep

One of Google's best kept secrets is Google Keep. This tool allows you to create all of your to-do lists, reminders, and notes in one place and since they're saved to the cloud, you can access them anywhere! The coolest part is you can even have it notify you of a reminder when you're close to the location of the task!!!!
