PINNING TABS

Do you ever close a tab and wish you wouldn't have because you use it ALL the time? This is the solution for you! (Disclaimer: you must be in Chrome for this to work). Right click on the tab you want to save. Click on Pin Tab. This shrinks the pin and will move the pin to the left of your screen and eliminates the chance to close the tab. It will also give you more room for other tabs. Click here for more info:

Privacy and Sharing

  • Deleting shared items - if you delete the other collaborators will still have their copies (owners - goes to trash until you permanently delete it - others can make a copy of it while it is in trash, but once it is deleted its totally gone)

  • If you have a doc and have people “view only” - when you trash it others cannot make a copy when in trash.

  • To keep doc more secure, when sharing - go to advanced - check the boxes at the bottom (Prevent editors from changing access and adding new people AND Disable options to download, print, and copy for commenters and viewers)

Google Scholar

  1. Use this Google search to get results from scholarly literature. This would be great for those who need resources for their grad classes as well as those who want to keep up with current trends. Don't forget to add Southern York County School District to your list to keep up with current district information.
