Happy Tech Tuesday School Nurses! Here are some tips and tricks about bookmarks if you use Google Chrome as your browser.
Bookmarking a website allows you to save a webpage to visit later. This is great for websites you use often or that have information that you would like to access later. You can bookmark a website by clicking on the star icon in the address bar.
After clicking on the star a little window will pop up asking where you would like to put it. Similar to files on your computer you can create different folders to store bookmarks in. You can create a new folder when you bookmark a page by clicking on the down arrow next to the folder name and choosing the “choose another folder” option. Then the below screen will pop up where you can make a new folder.
The Bookmarks bar default is a nice area to put things that you will access often because you can set up your browser to always display. You do this by clicking on the 3 vertical dots in the upper right corner of the browser window, going down to bookmarks, and then clicking “show bookmarks bar.”
You will then need to close and reopen your browser. After doing so all of your bookmarks will appear underneath the address bar. You can click and drag things on the bar to organize it how you like.
Another great feature of the bookmark bar is you can create a folder with things you use a lot and then right-click on that folder to open all the websites at once. For example, let’s say every morning you open: your email, your school’s attendance, your charting system, and the local weather. Using the steps above, you can create a folder and title it “Morning Websites”, you can then create bookmarks using the steps above and place those websites in the folder. Then you can right-click on the folder and open them all at once each morning for a time saver.
