Change default view in Google Docs?

Recommended Posts

Good question. I had the same issue. Really, all you have to do is make sure you're looking at your starred documents when you pin it to the taskbar. Personally, I use a bookmark but it's the same concept.

There's a separate URL for starred docs, it looks like this:

https://docs.google.com/#starred

So go there and then create your bookmark/pinned app

That's a really good question.... Hmm.... Looking at the UI in Google Docs, on the left you can click the "STAR" to show you only your STAR documents/spreadsheets. Is that good enough or do you want to see the Star Docs + the others?

Here's what it looks like:

Google Docs Starred View

Good or no?

Hey, I have been searching for the answer to this for awhile ( ok like 2days) and I finally figured it out. I tried the "Wait 5min" thing and it never worked for me. (I'm using chrome and the new look for google docs)

Here what I did:

go to home. Check the box at the top next to "Title" that selects everything. UNCHECK everything that you want to KEEP in your default view (i.e. everytime you open up google docs). This can be folders, files, whatever. Then at the top select "More", then select "Don't show in home".

Tada!

      A lot of the programs I have running on my computer came with HTML help files. When the I use the in-program links to open them Chrome just spits out the following error:

      This browser does not display help installed on your local machine. Please use another browser to view the help. For more information, see Chromium issue 47416 ( http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=47416 ).
      This is super frustrating because I don't know how to set it up so local files will use IE or FF instead, while still keeping Chrome as my primary browser. I would prefer to just use Chrome for everything though. Does anyone have a fix for this?

      I've been visiting this site for some time now, but of late when using Google Chrome my laptop completely freezes when clicking on GroovyPost link for about 20 seconds. Noticed this with a couple of other sites as well but no freezing when using other browsers. What's going on? Suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated...
