comment Google Maps menu in Russian
What URL are you using? If the domain ends in .ru I'd expect the interface to be in Russian.

comment Gmail on Windows Live Mail
I'm afraid there's really not enough information here for us to help you. How, exactly, are you trying to import your Gmail in Windows Live Mail?

And while they might be able to see you have a person Circled, they can't see what Circle you put them in.

comment Why should I use the Google Authenticator app instead of SMS?
I don't have any particular insight into Google's Secret Sauce™. What I've read about other similar systems is that the algorithm uses a shared key (why you needed to scan a QR code) and the time to generate a six-digit number every 60 seconds.

comment How to sync files from OneDrive to Dropbox?
Unfortunately there is no trigger available OneDrive in IFTTT, so that precludes using that. I suspect that the OneDrive API simply doesn't have a way to get that information.

comment Google calendar not syncing right color on iPad
It almost certainly has nothing to do with 2-factor authentication. Since your question is about the iPad app, it might be better off at Ask Different.

comment GMAIL - no label found in Allmail
" And just to clarify..the email was sitting in the ALLMAIL box with no label...does that make sense?" Yes. As I said, that's what happens when you archive a message and don't apply any other labels to it.

comment GMAIL - no label found in Allmail
You've never noticed the "archive" button? I really suggest you have a look at the Gmail support center and familiarize yourself with some of the basic features.

comment Google groups new topic button - where the heck is it?
Does the group allow posting from the Web? I seem to recall that was a setting one could set for a group. In such case you would need to send email to the group address to start a new topic.

comment How to setup Shared Google Calendar Notifications upon Event Creation
Unfortunately, none of the ingredients for IFTTT's Google Calendar "Add New Event" trigger includes the person creating the event. You might want to reach out to IFTTT and suggest it as an enhancement.

comment Keyboard shortcut for indenting bulleted list in Gmail message editor with Mac
Unfortunately, even the "Custom Keyboard Shortcuts" Lab doesn't have options to change the keys for indent.
