Don't Forget to Install Google Drive Onto Your Computer

It took 6 months of using Google Drive for someone to tell me that you can install the application onto your PC or Mac for quicker access to your Drive folders.  Installing the Google Drive application actually puts Drive into your list of drives as if it is one of your network drives.

Here are some of the benefits of using this as a way to manage your Drive files:
  • You can share files right from the finder window by right clicking a file
  • You can save a file directly to drive from a program (such as Word)
  • If you open a Word document from your Drive window, edit it and then save it the file will be automatically updated in your Google Drive.  It will also keep a record of revisions to that document if you right click the file from WEB version of Drive.
  • Export annotated notes from Smart Notebook as a pdf straight to Drive for students
