While you are using this site
If you are concerned that someone else may come into the room while you are visiting this site, and you do not want them to see what you are looking at, the quickest way to hide the site is usually just to close the window.
It might be a good idea to remind yourself now of the keyboard command used to do this on your computer:
Windows: ‘ALT’ key and ‘F4’
Apple Macintosh: ‘Apple’ key and ‘W’
You could open another browser window and leave it open at another website, placing it behind the window you are currently using (this site). This way, if you have to quickly close the main window, you will not be left looking at a blank screen.
Alternatively, press the Leave this site button at the top of the page. This will take you straight to the Google website.
