Bet you never knew Google’s search box has secret options that can do other things. Check these out:
- Calculator – use the +, -, *, / symbols and parentheses to do a simple equation
- Definitions – use the “define:” operator to get a quick definition
- Quotes – if you want to search for an exact phrase, use quotes
- Conversion – use Google for a quick conversion, from yards to meters or different currency
- File types – if you just want to search for .PDF files, Word documents, or Excel spreadsheets, use the “filetype:” operator
- Cached pages – use the cached operator
- Exclude words – use the “-” sign in front of the word you want to exclude.
