Google Calculator

Computer Type: All • Difficulty Level: Novice

Can’t find a calculator? Not sure where your calculator is hiding in your Windows computer? Google has an easy alternative: just type your equation in the Google search bar and press return. That’s right. The Google search bar is also a calculator.

Here is an example:

Here is what you get back:

The asterisk functions as your multiplication sign. The forward slash functions as your division sign.Note that this works in any Google search bar, so you don’t have to be actually at Google’s site to use the calculator. If your browser has a search bar in the top of the window, and you have Google as your preferred search engine, the calculator will work just as well from the small search bar. If there is a Google search bar on a website, the calculator will work there as well.

The only caveat: the calculator only works when you are doing a “web” search. It won’t work if you try it in the image search or other search areas.

Enjoy!
