How Do I Disconnect Backup & Sync from External USB Drive Storage

Well! I'm not surprised to see this question. Whenever a New feature is released there seems to be quite a bit of front end user confusion. Please follow the below steps to disconnect your External USB Drive Storage Device from the New Google Drive Backup & Sync Google Drive Client.
  1. On your computer, click Backup and Sync
  2. Click More (3 vertical dots) Preferences. 
  3. A Window Pops Open 
  4. Scroll Down and Click USB Devices & SD Cards 
  5. New Window Opens 
  6. Scroll Down & Uncheck Plug in Camera or Phone to Backup Files 
  7. Click   OK 

The above steps should prevent syncing between your laptop and an External USB Storage.

What Google Doc Font should I use for my Egyptian Project?

There are literally hundreds of font styles to choose from for a Google Doc. If I was creating a project about Egypt there are two fonts which I might use for creating titles and headings. The font styles I like are Algerian and Caesar.  

You can learn about installing Google Doc Fonts from the following Google Doc Help Center Article: Edit and format a document. Please pay special attention to the "Format your Font" section.

Can I Create Columns In a Google Doc?

Creating columns is a tool which was added earlier this year to Google Docs. It is a little tricky to use. If you choose an amount of columns right away you will have to type to the bottom of the page before the words continue in the next column. This works well if you are planning to use two or three column text to fill the whole page. However there may be times you only want to fill part of a page with two or more columns. So what do you do to make columns work?
