The built in Share functionality is meant to just show a thumbnail, but there is a workaround for a purely Gmail solution. In the compose window you should be able to attach an image. IN the "Add an Image" window click on "Web address (URL)" Then, in your G+ window, right-click on the image you want to share and select "Copy image URL" You can now paste ...

Google Drive does not currently have this feature, but Sugarsync has a feature where you can select certain files to be high priority and uploaded before others. At times, it is not as convenient as it should be, but it does work.

As Al mentioned, it's just a gimmick plus some JavaScript trickery that shows the 'real-time' increase - in practice, the amount is a fixed space which gets increased at regular intervals. This Stack Overflow answer explains how the JS bit works This is the code in charge of it. Looks like it is based on a time computation being mapped to a number of ...

The reason for this is that, for a number of security reasons, browsers have limited capability to interact with the operating system's clipboard. If you think about it, this makes sense as the content within a browser window/tab runs as an isolated sandboxed environment to prevent possible malicious interaction with the OS. As such, alternatives have to ...

Sounds like your family will need to edit their email notifications settings. This can be done by going to: Google+ → Settings (Gear) → Edit your Receive Notifications options Each person will have to do this though, since the notifications are controlled on their side. This will allow them to continue to receive notifications in the top right (red square) ...

In Gmail there is an IMAP Connection limit of 15 simultaneous connections. Web browser users should be ok, but tablet and phone users may receive the error message, 'Too many simultaneous connections' and then have imap be subsequently blocked. Do you also want to allow the same level of access to the account to all users? Someone could get wily and ...

try clicking this link, it may fix your problem: http://www.google.com/trends/?hl=en What happens is this: Google saves a state of your "current language" in their servers. They probably use this to customize ads for you. This "?hl=en" parameter tells Google you prefer a different language (English in this example). It works across all their services.

The Google Drive web app gets around a security feature on the browser. Without this security feature, a script on any web page you open could grab sensitive data from your clipboard. When you right-click in Google Drive, the script on that page shows the menu, and when you select "Paste" from that menu it calls another function in the script that attempts ...

This must have changed as I was just able to change my user name on the Google Voice Help Forum. Here is what I did. While in the forum (e.g. https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/voice for Google Voice), click the settings icon and select "Membership and email settings". I think your display name may be specific to each Forum so you might have to ...

A quick fix would be to add "&hl=en" to URL of the service you use. That, however, needs to be done manually for each session you start. I'm still looking for an automation technique like a browser plugin for that.

The vaguely named "Gmail" access is pretty much giving the application unlimited IMAP/SMTP access to your account (it provides an OAuth login which merely replaces giving it your password). In essence it is pretty much unlimited permission to your Gmail, so yes they could delete all your emails. Providing any sort of access to your account will be a risk, ...

You can "nickname" your email using plus-sign addressing (plus-sign suffixing). So, for instance you can sign up using these emails: me+facebook@example.net me+twitter@example.net me+forumx@example.net And they will all be delivered to me@example.net, providing that you are using GMail. This will allow you to keep one username and password, in your case ...

I found this on Google Developers: Get a Developer APP ID The button must contain the app ID of your Hangout app or extension.

You could try setting up a collaborative inbox in Google Groups - http://www.googlegooru.com/how-to-setup-a-collaborative-inbox-in-google-groups/ This would allow an administrator to manage members' access to the group content, permissions for posting, etc. rather than giving every member the same permissions (which could be a problem if you're giving 100+ ...

You are absolutely right that this can be confusing sometimes. In case of Uber it is especially weird since the Google search result for 'Uber app login' shows Sign In. Connect with Facebook. or use email. Email. Password. Remember Me. Sign In. Forgot Password. Don't have an account? Sign Up. and the Uber page itself does not offer this option. However ...

No, there isn't. Google has never offered any option to prevent their corporate pranks. Of course, in the past, most have been ones where you actually need to go to a different URL or are something harmless like changing a site theme. I can pretty much guarantee that they'll never mess with something as important as email ever again. Certainly not after ...

Zapier has a recipe that can do this. I've just set it up and tested it and it seems to work well. It creates a new Facebook Page Event when a new Google Calendar entry is created. So far, I've only got it triggering when a new event is created in G Cal, but it might be possible to get it to go through the G Cal diary and transfer existing events. The ...
