Welcome to
Google Drive
Let’s get started.
One safe place for all
your work. And some
pretty cool features, too.
Drive can
help you get
things done.
Search, upload, and access your work
across all of your devices, and everything
is securely backed up on Google servers —
no more lost files.
Stay friends with Office. Work on Word,
Excel, and Powerpoint files right in Drive
— no software needed.
Real-time collaboration. Everyone shares
the same file, so you can create something
together and have all your comments in
one place.
Works with desktops. Sync Drive to your
desktop to open files using applications on
your computer.
Save space. Use Drive to view files on any
device without having to download them.
Easy version control. Manage versions and
view revision history like a pro.
Drive is designed to
simplify the way you work:
Smart features help make
the workday a little easier:

basics
Here’s what we’ll
cover. Click on a
topic to jump ahead.
Getting Started
Learning your way around Drive
•	 Your files and folders are in My Drive.
•	 Things that have been shared with you are in
Shared with me. Move them into My Drive to
organize them however you like.
•	 Recent shows you the last files you’ve worked
on so you can quickly jump back in.
To get to Drive from Gmail, click the 3x3 app
launcher at the top of the page and select the
Drive icon.
TIP
Getting Started
The desktop app works with everything in
My Drive. Choose to only sync specific folders
so you don’t fill up your hard drive, or sync
everything.
Move Shared with me items into My Drive
to sync to your desktop.
Google Drive mobile app
Google Drive for Mac or PC
Get quick and easy access to Google Drive on
your computer, by installing the Google Drive
folder on your desktop. It looks just like any
other folder on your hard drive, but it’s way
more powerful.
• Desktop Sync: Drag, drop, move, rename, or
delete files and folders here, and all changes
are instantly synced to Drive across all
your devices.
• Open in Drive: Keep files safe in Drive, but
still open and edit files using apps on your
computer like Photoshop or Adobe Acrobat.
Download the mobile app to open, edit, and
share your files from any smartphone or tablet
—without using up your device’s local storage.
No Internet? No problem.
Keep working when you don’t have a data or
WiFi connection—simply pin files to make
them available offline.
Setting up Drive on your devices
TIP
0.06TB (1%) of 10.05TB used
you@company.com
Getting Started
Make yourself at home. Add files to Drive and
organize them however you want. They’ll always
be available wherever you log into Drive.
Desktop: Drag and drop any file or folder to
start an instant upload.
Mobile: Click the button to add files.
+
Getting your stuff in Drive
Working in Drive
The New button is the place to create new
folders, upload files, start new docs, and find
apps to do just about anything.
Want to send a fax, sign a doc, edit a PDF,
or create a workflow?
Go to New > More > Connect more apps to
search for tools to help you do all of the
above and more (or visit the Drive collection
in the Chrome Web Store).
Creating new items and connecting with apps
Working in Drive
Take a picture of your handwritten
notes with your phone and upload it to
Drive. That text will be searchable so
you can find your great ideas later.
TIP
Finding and viewing files in Drive
You can view and open most common file types
in Drive. Click to open files or preview them
using the eye icon.
Check this out: View stuff like HD videos,
Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop files without
having those programs on your computer.
Find what you’re looking for with Drive search—
it’s like Google search, but for your files. You
can even search for words within PDFs and
scanned images.
Working in Drive
Sharing files, inside and outside of your organization
Everything you create or upload to Drive
belongs to you — you can decide who to
share it with and how much access they
have. To share a file: Hit “Share”
Desktop: Select the file you want to share,
then click the share icon / that
appears in the top right.
Mobile: Tap the info icon on the file you
want to share, then select the share icon on
the next screen.
Add people - Enter the email addresses(es)
of who you want to share it with, from inside
or outside your organization.
Choose sharing settings - Decide if the
people you share with can edit the file, can
just leave comments, or can only view the
file. Check out the different sharing settings
and what they mean here.
Send a message - Drive will send them an
email notification with a link to the file and
you can include a message to help explain
what you’d like them to do, so you don’t have
to send a separate email.
Click to watch tutorial:
Troubleshooting
Can’t find a file or folder?
Drive search is powerful (like Google search,
but for your files). Try searching for different
keywords from the title or within the file. Drive
can even search text in PDFs and images.
Sometimes a change of scenery makes all
the difference.
• Switch from a grid to a list using the
grid icon / or list icon /
• Sort by any of the headers in list view,
including the file owner and when the
file was last modified.
Still missing? Here’s your go-to resource for
additional tips on locating that lost item.
One thing to remember: sometimes the owner of
a file may have deleted it, and that’s why it’s no
longer shared in Drive. If you think this might be
the case, contact the owner of the file to verify.
Troubleshooting
Accessing, syncing, and loading errors
Some files can’t be synced
Click the Google Drive icon in your computer’s
toolbar and select View # unsyncable files
> Retry all. If that doesn’t work, quit Google
Drive and open it again from your Applications
folder.
Loading error
If the document you’re viewing is not loading
properly, there might be an issue with cached
data in your browser. Follow the instructions
here to clear the cache and cookies from
your browser.
Need permission
If you click on a link to a file or folder that isn’t
shared with you, this page will come up.
Simply click “Request access” and the owner
of the file or folder will receive an email
notification with your request and let you in.
Still Stumped?
Visit the Google Drive Help Center

Tips
Tips, tricks, and fun features
Once you have the basics down, here are a few
handy things to help you get even more from Drive:
Want to save multiple versions?
Upload a new version (of your images, PDFs, etc.)
to the same link and you can revert back to prior
versions. Older versions will save for 30 days, or
right click the file you want to manage,
select Manage versions > select Keep forever.
Need to send big files?
You can send huge files (up to 5TB) with Drive.
Just upload and share. Or insert files into email
messages without leaving your Gmail.

Want to know what’s changed in a
shared folder?
Click the little in the top right corner to scan
through the Activity stream to see what people
have been up to, like when a file was shared, and
with who.
My Projects
Tips
Like to automate common tasks?
Use Apps Script to do things like manage
responses from Google Forms, translate your
Docs, and build custom reports with macros.
Like working as a team?
Create and share a Projects folder with your
team so when you add a new document, it’s
automatically shared with everyone.
