comment Shared folder user permissions in Dropbox
For what it's worth, this true of virtually all of your cloud shared storage services. Certainly Google Drive works this way.

I also wonder if this wouldn't be better off at Super User.

comment problems deleting and reporting spam with my gmail messages
Have you tried in a different browser? Logging off and back on again?

comment How to quickly get email URL in Gmail with preview-pane?
If you shift-click on the message link it'll open in a pop-up window. That's the quickest way to get a direct URL that I am aware of.

comment Gmail & Google Docs: Paste just the text, not the formatting (Firefox, Safari)
Presumably the Mac equivalent would be Command+Shift+V?

comment Google Drive: share a folder which is not in the root
I don't know why this was migrated here. It's asking about folders on the hard drive, not anything to do with the web interface.

comment Google Drive: share a folder which is not in the root
It seems to not answer the question which, admittedly, uses the word "share" in a different way than most people would use it.

comment Is Google Drive invitation only?
Now that Google Drive is long past the point where it's accessible to the world, it seems that this question has no further utility and should be closed (and deleted).

comment Correct way to create multiple-practitioner Google business page
I don't suppose you've checked out how other multi-practioner practices are doing it (or failing to do it)?

Ah. You need an iOS solution. You're probably better off asking on Ask Different then.

comment Gmail - problem with Hangout and filters
You can set the Gmail app on your Android to (separately) alert you to new messages in specific labels. How to get notified of new automatically archived emails in Gmail?

comment Is it possible to get Gmail Password sent to my recovery email address?
Doesn't even need to be a security breach at Google. What if someone has access to your recovery email address? Or intercepts the email while it passes from server to server?

comment Is there a way to save and open “workspaces” in Google Drive?
If you want, sure.

comment How can I sync my Yahoo! Calendar with Google Calendar?
The Asker never mentioned using a smartphone. It appears that a pure web app solution is wanted.

comment Can I stop Google+ from asking me to “Find my friends”?
For what it's worth, I get Facebook asking me much more often. Have you actually used the tool to add a few people? Maybe it'll shut up then.

comment Can I stop Google+ from asking me to “Find my friends”?
I think it must stop eventually. I don't see that any more.

comment How do I link a cell in Google Spreadsheets to a cell in another document?
@JJRohrer: Good catch. I'll update my answer to include that.

comment Why does Google blur out the name on this street sign?
Yes, well, they're not going to tell us what goes in the secret sauce, are they? It wouldn't surprise me that as the algorithm gets more sophisticated this particular mis-blur will be corrected in the future.

comment Why does Google blur out the name on this street sign?
Well, I reported it, but it was declined very quickly by whatever bot they have monitoring the channel.

comment Why does Google blur out the name on this street sign?
What country? Some (notably Germany) require more to be blurred out than some others. Also, I know that the GOOG blurs out license plates. That sign looks like it could have been mistaken for such.
