Changes to Google's Top Menu Bar

Google updated its look recently, changing the top menu bar. We've gotten a lot of questions about how to find some apps and features. Here's where to look:

Finding Apps
Previously, you could access Google's apps (such as Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Drive) on the black bar across the top. Now, click the grid icon near the top right of the page and a menu of apps will appear.

Other Suggestions for Finding Apps
Looking for your apps? Try these two suggestions to make them easier to find:

  • Add your favorite apps (like Mail and Calendar) to your browser's bookmarks bar, and links will always show at the top of your browser. Every browser is different - here's  information about the bookmarks bar in Chrome.
  • Automatically open your favorite apps in new tabs each time you start your browser. Again, each browser is different - in Chrome, look for the "Open a specific page or set of pages" option
