How to Identify Fonts on a website and download them.
If you’ve ever visited a web page and noticed a cool font that you really liked the look of, but couldn’t figure out which font it was so that you could use it for your own work, then this video is for you!

In this Micro Tutorial, you'll learn you how to quickly and easily identify fonts that are used on any web page you visit, as well as how to download those fonts from Google’s fonts collection site with a couple of mouse clicks, so long as Google has them available.

The video also covers how to install downloaded fonts into Windows so that they can be used in any text editing software you have that allows you to select different fonts.

I plan to also write an illustrated article tutorial on this topic, so if you prefer reading and viewing screen shots as opposed to video learning, then head over to my article How to Identify Fonts on a website and download them.

Please enjoy the video..

1. (00:33) Install the Fount Java Script button into your browser

Browse over to FOUNT in your browser and follow the instructions on the page to install the the free "fount" button.

2. (01:03) Identify the Font you're interested in

On any web page containing the font you're interested in, click your newly installed fount button and then click on the font text you want to identify

3. (01:40) Click the Google Fonts link if available

If the View fonts on Google Fonts link becomes available to you, then Google has a copy of the font available for download. Click the link to be taken to the font download area. If the link is not there, then you will need to do a manual search to find out where you can obtain the font elsewhere.

4. (01:50) Download the Font from Google Fonts

How a small business owner can reduce the cost of Google Apps
In this Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorial, I'm going to show how small business owners who use Google Apps can save money by setting up what is called a catch-all email address in their Gmail accounts. By using the catch-all feature, small business owners can support popular inbound email addresses, such as info@MySmallCompany.com, sales@MySmallCompany.com, support@MySmallCompany.com, etc., without having to pay the Google Apps fee for those "users". If the volume of such emails in your small business is reasonable, then all of them can be directed to another Gmail account on your domain. In the best case scenario, a one-person company can do fine with just a single Google Account user, saving the small business owner hundreds of dollars per year.

1. Sign into your Google Admin Console


Visit this link:

https://admin.google.com/AdminHome

Choose your Google Account and sign in with your password.

Step1

2. Bring up the Apps Settings


Click Apps.

Step2

3. Bring up the Google Apps Settings


Click Google Apps.

Step3

4. Bring up the Gmail Settings


Click Gmail.

Step4

5. Bring up the Gmail User Settings


Click User settings.

Step5

6. Enter the catch-all address


Scroll down until you find a section in the Gmail User Settings called Routing.

Enter the address of a real Gmail user in your account. This is where messages sent to unknown user accounts will be delivered.

Step6

7. Save the change to the catch-all setting


Click SAVE.

Step7
That's it! I hope you just saved yourself some money in Google Apps fees. Better in your pocket than Google's!

The downside of this approach is that any email sent to the domain, legitimate or not will be routed to the one user, which greatly increases the chances of spam and phishing attacks getting through.  It also provides a "legitimate" return address for spammers that use spoofing.

Other options are:
Setup specific nicknames for the user, such as info@, sales@, service@, help@ etc. This can be done from the User admin section, as noted in the video, by adding alias addresses.
Use the Groups feature to setup a "distribution list" for info@, sales@, etc to forward to the user

The advantage of these options is that you can also configure to user so that he/she can reply using the nickname/group name.  So, the user can reply as info@, sales@ etc OR their personal address.

Hi Allen,
Yes, those are downsides of the approach, as stated in Google's caveat shown in Step #6 above and why I took the time to read the caveat in full during the video. Thanks very much for providing your thoughts on other options — those are interesting ideas! I've used aliases/nicknames and groups/distribution lists with other email providers/client software, but not with Gmail. I'll check it out — appreciate the tip! Regards, Joe
