Maria asks…

How do you turn off the 1000 search results in google earth ?

I want to set it to just first 10 results, I have the latest version of google earth I just want to see the first ten results, the rest is a bit annoying.

Administrator answers:

I do not think that you can


Laura asks…

How is the “bought version of google earth?

Okay, I do have the “free” version of google earth, and my husband and I have been using it to look at potential homes to buy, but it does not show the front of the house, just the roof and surroundings.

If I purchase the google earth download, will it show the front of buildings, homes, etc..? Or is it the same thing as I am using now?

Administrator answers:

Just go to and use Google Street View. Google Earth is not meant for house buying or recommendations. A satellite can’t photograph that stuff anyways, and buying an expensive Plus or Pro version will not help.

Street View may not be in all areas though. To do that Google employees would have to drive all over the US, which could take many, many years.

Daniel asks…

How can you make the buildings in Google Earth Solid?

I don’t know if it’s possible, but is there a way to make the buildings in Google Earth solid? For example if I was in flight sim and wanted to land on a aircraft carrier, how can this be done. I think that I’ve seen it done before.

Administrator answers:

I don’t know about te flight simulator thing, but you can’t make the buildings solid because they are just pictures put together. Sometimes you will see a car with a big black ball camera thing on the top with te google logo on it, it is what is taking pictures for google earth and google maps.

Charles asks…

How do you view the elevation in Google Earth with a trackpad?


I know that in Google Earth, if you click and hold your mouses scroll wheel and move the mouse you can change the view (as in elevation) but what about when you are using a laptop, without a mouse?

P.S. I am using a new MacBook with the giant, multi touch clickable trackpad, if that makes a difference.

Administrator answers:

Use two fingers on the trackpad to do that or get a wireless mouse

John asks…

How to find the exact location of a house in Google Earth?

I searched up my house in google earth an just put the address (not including the postal code). I found out it was 1 house off. I searched only my postal code, and it was 17 houses off! I know for sure what my postal code is. Is there a way you can find the EXACT location of a house in google earth? I have the newest 2010 version.

Administrator answers:

Addresses rarely match on Google Earth, but you can go to the exactly location of your house and find the longitude and latitude.

Paul asks…

Where can I get current satellite images like google earth?

Google earth shows imagery date as April 6, 2004. Where can I get current satellite images of my place in NW Arkansas? Is there anything like google earth with newer images? I read people use google earth to look for crashed air planes, but how would that work if the images are so old? Yes, i do live out in the country.

Administrator answers:

Nasa_World_Wind is better than google chrome when it comes to image quality
