I can't find a way
- to sort search results by sender.
last checked | 2020-08-11
Sample use case: search for something in the spam folder and sort the results by sender to quickly weed out unwanted results.
- No way to show rolling seven days. The closest I could find is a weekly view with a customizable start day.
- No way to enter strike through text in the event description.
use html5 instead of flash
- Go to www.youtube.com/html5 and set YouTube's HTML5 player to be used wherever possible. This setting is stored in a cookie.
Submit URLs to search indices
- To change the credit card used in google voice, use wallet.google.com
- If http://voice.google.com does not work, try https://www.google.com/voice/#history or the the mobile version https://www.google.com/voice/m/#history
- Old version of google maps - https://maps.google.com/maps?&output=classic
- Old version of google contacts - https://www.google.com/contacts/u/0/?cplus=0#contacts
- One idea is to use the http://urlclean.com website
Search for something and then click Tools -> Verbatim to show results that exactly match.
