Download Google Drive to your desktop
Friday, April 27, 2012/
Google announced its new Drive product this week, giving every users 5GB of storage for free.
But you won’t get the most out of it unless you download the Google Drive software to your desktop so you can sync files from your computer to the Drive.
To open the software, you’ll need to sign up for the service first. Then, when it’s activated, head to your Gmail Account or any other tab on your Google Account.
Up the top of the screen, you should see an option to click called “Drive”. Click on it; this will take you to the Drive page.
There, click on the “Download Google Drive for PC” button. Simply follow the prompts like any other piece of software, and you’re ready to get started.
