How to Use Google:
1. Go to [google.com...]
2. wait a few seconds until the hidden controls fade-in if you are going to do anything other than a general web search, (e.g. if you want a map, an image or to get shopping results).
3. type (1) letter or number -- read entire screen and see if Google produced relevant results, if not, type another letter... repeat until Google either displays the information you want, or you have typed your entire query, then press [ENTER]
4. After first search, locate link that says "Web History" (in upper right corner of screen), click link.
__4a. then locate the link which says "Disable customizations based on search activity." and click that
__4b. then click the "Google Home" link to return to a page with a search box on it.
5. Once at the Google Home page, again, type the first letter of your query into the search box, and when box jumps to top of page, you will now notice a link which reads "Instant is on", click that link
__5a. next, click the "Off (Press Enter to Search)" link -- the search box will jump back the center of the screen.
6. You may now begin typing in your search query -- but remember, and this is important -- you will need to press [ENTER] when you want Google to perform the search.... REMEMBER, YOU NEED TO PRESS [ENTER], we can not reiterate this point enough -- as difficult as it is to remember, you will have to try to remember that you need to press the [ENTER] key when you are ready for Google to perform a search... (say "enter key", "enter key", "enter key" until it's drilled into your head and you don't forget)...
NOTE: If you clear your browser cache, or otherwise delete your "personal data" from your browser you will need to repeat the above steps to do use Google's basic search functionality without most of Google's saved copies of your personal or historical data or much of Google's programmatic influence affecting your search results, (although geo-location and other factors will still be applied based on IP address, time of day, national original, governmental policy, direction wind is blowing, chance of rain, number of days in month, Google CEO's dog's middle initial, or other factors which may or may not be protected by US and international patents, trade secrets, periodic algorithm modification, acts of war, whims, sneezes, solar flares, moon tide phase and the latest trend being capitalized on by others operating any website designed for human use and rumored to be a possible future advertising outlet.
