Welcome to the ultimate guide to Google Drive!
Learning how to use Google Drive and set it up to fit your exact needs has never been simpler.
Google Drive is a file storage and sharing app you can access on any device. It makes it easy for you to store and access files and folders online and collaborate on documents with others in real-time.
This beginner-friendly training contains all you need to know about Google Drive’s features and settings – it covers every single option.
From uploading content and creating documents to sharing, sorting, searching, using shared drives, and more, all you need to know is here.
We’ll start the training by showing you the absolute basics of Google Drive – adding and removing files and folders. You will see how to upload from your computer, create Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, and other files, convert Office files automatically, and more.
We will also look at all your options when managing files and folders in Google Drive, such as moving, renaming, making copies, downloading, etc.
Sharing Google Drive files and folders with other people is a big part of what makes the service so valuable.
We will go step by step through everything related to Google Drive sharing, such as sharing with others, viewing items shared with you, transferring ownership, updating sharing permissions, and more.
Next, we’ll look at Google Drive’s web user interface and what you can do to personalize it and make your files and folders easier to access.
Shared drives are the group version of Google Drive, where multiple users can upload and work on files and folders in the same drive together.
We will show you how to create and manage shared drive members and settings.
