Google Drive is an online file storage and collaboration tool that can be used across devices. Files of any type can be stored, shared, and accessed with Google Drive. Google apps such as Docs and Slides are integrated with Google Drive, which means that files created with those apps are centrally stored and accessed from Drive. Files created with Microsoft Office products, such as Word documents and PowerPoint presentations, can be uploaded to Google Drive and edited within their corresponding app. Google Drive and other apps can be used from a web browser and don't require any additional software. The articles in this guide provide instructions for using the web version of Google Drive. Be aware that other versions, such as the mobile app, will vary in functionality.
To access Google Drive, navigate to drive.google.com. Everyone at PLU has access to all Google apps, including Drive, with their ePass. Your PLU Google Drive has unlimited storage space, and access to features and perks that are granted to users of G Suite for Education.
