Google Drive

  • Google Drive is a cloud storage service, and like all cloud services, its primary function is to take some load off your hard drive.

  • It works as a hub for all of your Google activity. Drive works with all of Google’s apps, including its office apps. This means you can use it to create Google Docs files, Google Forms surveys, Google Sheets spreadsheets or Google Slides presentations.

  • When you share files on Google Drive, you can set permissions for each person you’re sharing with. You can even let other users edit Google Docs files with you, allowing you to collaborate with up to 100 people on any G Suite document.

  • The left side of the screen is home to a navigation bar where you can access Drive’s various tabs. These tabs organize your files by various categories. The “my Drive” tab houses all of your cloud files. This is also where the Drive folder on your computer gets synced.

  • Meanwhile, “shared with me” keeps all the files that other people have shared with you. These are your main tabs, and you’ll spend most of your time there.
