Google Change

Google has removed the "black bar" menu from the top of the screen and replaced it with an Apps Grid in the upper right-hand corner of your screen (see the image below.)  
If you click that grid you will get a drop-down of the common Google Apps: Search, Mail, Drive, Calendar, Sites, etc.  If you click the "more" bar at the bottom of the drop-down you get...more apps.
