Dots and Lines

Two things to look for when using Google Apps in particular (other products use these too!): 3 lines or 3 dots together.

1) 3 Lines – Menu

In Google Classroom, mobile versions of Google Docs, and more places, you will see 3 lines in the upper left hand corner. These lines are sometimes referred to as “the hamburger.” Touch or click these 3 lines to reveal the menu. Anytime you see these 3 lines, click on them to see what other options you have.

2) 3 Dots – More Actions

When you see 3 dots in an icon this indicates there are more options. Click once on a file in Google Drive and the 3 dots “more actions” icon will appear in the toolbar. Click on this icon to reveal more options about the item you have selected.

More actions

In Google Classroom each assignment or announcement has the 3 dots “more actions” icon in the upper right-hand corner.

Be on the Lookout

Whenever you see the 3 lines “hamburger” or 3 dots “more actions” in any website or mobile app, click on it to see what options you have! You might be surprised with what you can do. 🙂
