Connect Google Drive to Your Laptop or Desktop

Tech Tip Tuesday

We all want an easier way to move and copy files from our computer to the cloud - Google Drive Sync makes that happen. Simply install Google Drive Sync from the Software Center (icon on your computer) to your desktop or laptop and then select what files to sync. This will make moving and copying files so much easier.

After the install is complete, open Windows File Explorer and you'll see your Google Drive listed in Favorites or Quick Access. To move a file from your computer just drag it to the Google Drive folder. To copy a file, hold down the Shift key while you drag the file.

An added bonus - changes you make while working in Google Chrome will automatically be made in your Google Drive housed on your desktop or laptop.

The video below will take you step-by-step on how to add your Google Drive onto your desktop and/or laptop. This will make moving documents from your SAISD I:drive and saving documents and images from an Internet search easier and faster.

*If you are unable to locate the Google Drive Sync in Software Center, please contact the Help Desk for further assistance.
