Using Google Docs from Your DBS Tech Email Account

Posted by in Tech Tips

Ok. So, you’ve just signed up with us for your high speed internet solution and just set up your web-mail account through our website. Now what? Now you can enjoy using Google Docs, a very powerful tool used to create documents, spreadsheets, drawings, and even presentations, all online, all on your web-mail account, and best of all, all for free.

Here’s how to access and use this amazing service:

First, Sign In. Go to the web-mail button located on the DBS Technologies homepage. You may also click here to access the web-mail log in page.

After you’ve signed in, go to the documents page of your Google account. The link for the documents portion of the account is in the upper left corner of the window. From here we can create new files, open existing files, and even upload other files from your system.

For this demonstration, we’re going to create a new Document using Google Docs.  To do this, click Create New just below the DBS Technologies icon, and click Document. This will open a new tab in your browser with a blank document.  In the Google Docs word processor, you can format your text, use spell check, as well as add links, bullets, pictures, and even tables.  Saving your document is also easy, with a handy autosave feature.  Just don’t forget to add title to your document!  You can also download your document in a few different formats, including .PDF and .doc.

In the same manor as before, you can open a new spreadsheet or presentation through the Documents Home Page.  You can also go to any existing document and go to File, then new, then select the document you want to open.  Pretty nifty, right?

As mentioned at the start of this article, this fantastic, web-based client is free with your dbstech email account.
