I had a pretty good setup with my Google Chrome with bookmarks and such setup nicely. Unfortunately I went into my Google Chrome on my Android and may have screwed up royally. Suddenly all my bookmarks were gone and I had ones from years ago. Like 5 years ago from another machine. I was surprised. SO I went to the Well of Knowledge and found that I must have set the bookmarks in my phone unententionally and I will have to find the Bookmark Files to return them. Only problem is on my machine. I can find no bookmarks when searching.
Windows 10 I assume professional since I upgraded from 7 Pro to Win 10
Google Chrome Version 67.0.3396.99 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Samsung Android Galaxy S6

Can my original version of Bookmarks from a week ago be retrieved or am I Doomed?!
I want to share a Google Sheet with many people (who may not even have a Google account) but I don't want the values they enter to be seen by others. Those cell values are their own personal information.....
The sheet / template and its formulas can be public.
I an familiar with templates in Excel.... just not in Google Sheets
Dark-net is supposed to be a page that is only accessible by certain users, right? Something about special software to perform the secret access/functions?
. . For secret access to communication and project software. I am certainly doing nothing illegal, just secret collaboration on a creative writing thing. We don't want our brilliant project developments to be found on Google.
Would I be able to skip the secret-software aspect and just use a wordpress page with pre-made secret accounts? no sign-up section That the content is invisible to unwanted, non-users?
at a page invisible to Google, like meaningless qrstvwxyz_abcd_efg.org? or 123_456_789.org?
the front page could be totally blank, with just login text-fields
And it is normal wordpress inside?
That would suit me! A multi user chat system would be awesome! Would video conference be possible in WP - optimal! - - Plugins seem plausible.

This is not a tech question but looking for suggestions. I want to send email to non - tech end users to follow some best practices to avoid spam emails / malware / spyware/ viruses on their computers. They are using Office365, Dropbox, internal file server, heavy internet browsing, Outlook.

Watching out for certain type of emails, avoid possible threats by following good practices etc.

If you can send me some links of good articles that I can simply forward to end users for them to read up on to  increase their knowledge that would be great!
I can google few articles myself but wanted to see if anyone have their favorite articles or blog posts already.


I was told by one of my friends that the Google AdWords was just a waste of time, however on the other hand, i searched on internet and they are saying that it will something that can make or break your business, what you would say?
I have a customer that travels to China and has a Google account he uses a lot.
Since all things Google are blocked over there ,I was going to set up a VPN  at the office for him to use.

Does China block unlisted public IP's for VPN  use?
I am trying to figure out how to get a simple "Login with Google" using Javascript working.

The docs are very confusing. The example on Google does not work for me. All I need is for the user to click LOGIN WITH GOOGLE, then have their email address available to me in a javascript variable.

This code does not appear to work, but it should. Maybe I am not setting up my API stuff correctly on the Google API manager? Who knows.

Our company utilizes Office 365 for our emailing and calendaring needs. We were recently purchased by another company that utilizes G-Suite? They also use OneLogin to provide SSO and 2FA. All employees must access G-Suite via OneLogin. I have been tasked with migrating our company into their G-Suite. Does someone know of a good resource I can turn to to answer all of my questions concerning this migration?

  1. Should I use the Google Migration Tool?
  2. Since I am using a 3rd party tool to provide SSO and 2FA, does this change how the migration takes place?
  3. Should I allow that tool to create new G-Suite accounts from the O365 accounts, or should I create the new accounts first, and map the two?
  4. I need to go ahead and set a few employees up in G-Suite. Can I import all of their O365 stuff at a later date without messing up their accounts?
  5. Does the migration tool also migrate over emails that have been placed in the O365 online archive?
  6. How does the migration tool handle the various groups and mailing lists I have in O365?

These are just the first questions that have popped into my mind. I have found much more information for migrating from G-Suite to O365 than the other way around.
Do resource calendars migrate over?
Hi, I checked this page in Google's new url tool:
https://www  dot magickitchen.com/meal-delivery/

It says:  Indexed, not submitted in sitemap. But I checked the sitemap section, and it's using the one I submitted, in the root, sitemap.xml.
And if you go to that sitemap and search the URL, it's there.

Can anyone explain that to me? WHy would it say not submitted in sitemap when it's clearly there and has been since March? Thanks.
a user  is requesting help for a capability to "poll" external parties to facilitate scheduling efforts.  To my knowledge, Outlook polling only looks to be able to handle a single yes or no rather than yes or no to a list of dates .

Every once in awhile, User A  askes me to schedule a conference callwith some OUTSIDE TEAM  members.   I usually send out an email like this:

USER A would like like to schedule another conference call.  Please let me know whichdates/times are agreeable with your schedule.  

July 26 9-10; 10-11; 11-12

July 27 9-10; 10-11; 11-12

Someone suggested that I use Doodle.  When I went andlooked at Doodle on Google, it was something that while free you had to download stuff and I know IT does not want us downloading stuff willy,nilly.

“Is there another program that YOU  recommend? There has to be a more efficient way to findacceptable times to meet with a group of folks outside of the company.”
I want to turn OFF all Google ads coming to my Android phone. There are videos available that tell how do do this, but the videos assume far too much knowledge on my part. I have NO idea how to get to whatever a "campaign" page is. Can anyone tell me, step by step how to best try to eliminate these cellphone ads? My phone is a new Samsung S9 Plus. Kindly be specific and very descriptive with the steps you suggest for me.
I'm trying to set up a VPN tunnel to the Google Cloud Instance I've created but have no idea how to do this.

Many thanks

I currently upload hundreds of photos to Google + after each race I time and send a link to race participants so they can find their finish line picture.  Lately Google + is not sorting them in the order that they were taken which is how I think I have it set up.  Is there a setting on the camera that I need to change for this or is this something I am doing wrong on Google +.  Alternatively, are there other FREE pictures storage sites that folks can access their finish line picture via a link?


I briefly had a look at a setup with Hisband wife using google drive and I’m a little confused as I havnt used it beofre.

All folders have a correction mark beside them so they look synced and in order in the PC

I created a test.doc and it says synchronized but seems to have deleted the temp doc $est.doc of the same time 4 Mins ago

Is this normal ?

I wasn’t able to go to the go to the cloud to verify it was there as we didn’t log into the husbands google drive itself

Setting up a exchange server 2010. routing email though google apps for spam purposes only. I am now receiving emails but if I try to send an email it goes to the users sent items, then hours later I get a delayed message from exchange.
I have configured the outbound connector to point to google.  but the emails are still sitting in my exchange queue, any ideas?
Background:  I'm working with a small school who is interested in bringing live text into their athletic streams.  The most cost effective yet easily editable solution for students is to use a Google Sheet.  The solution is great, but now they've evolved to wanting the "white" in the cell background to become transparent.

Question:  I'm working with OBS studio (https://obsproject.com/).  
I use a local Chrome browser source going to a Google Sheet as one of my media layers.   Works great.

The next thing I need to do is make the white background of a cell(s) to be transparent rather than the classic "white".  I've attempted a ChromaKey filter within OBS on the browser source.  Unfortunately the ChromaKey filter fails on the browser source.

Someone mentioned to use CSS and change the "white" to "transparent".  Maybe simply inspect modify the CSS in the local Chrome browser and the data may update using the modifications.  It's a long shot from my experience.

Is this something easily attainable to someone starting from scratch on the subject?
I need help figuring out how to quickly share a contact with a colleague. I get an e mail request for contact information. I would like to quickly insert the requested information into the reply and send it off. Instead, I have to do a search of google contacts, export the contact to a vcf file. download it to my desktop. Then attach it to the email as a separate file. then I can send it. What I really want to be able to do is to access my contacts list quickly copy the contact info to the clipboard and paste it into my reply email. Is there a way to do this?
