If you work on the road or often use different devices other than your home computer, you’ll want to make sure you know how to access Google Drive files from anywhere. Once your files have synced, you can access them from any browser on any device.
How to access Google Drive from a web browser (any device):
- Install any web browser.
- Go to Google Drive.
How to access Google Drive from a desktop computer:
- Install Google Drive for Mac/PC.
- Open the Google Drive folder on your desktop.
When you install Google Drive, the folder will be saved in a default location on your computer unless you choose to save it in a specific folder. The default path to find your Google Drive folder is:
PC: C:/Users/your username/Google Drive
Mac: /Users/your username/Google Drive
Note: You won’t be able to backup and sync using the Linux operating system as Google doesn’t provide the official client. You can access Google Drive on the web or install one of the third-party clients.
How to access Google Drive from a mobile or tablet device:
- Install the Drive app from the Play Store (Android) or App Store (iOS).
- Open the Drive app on your smartphone or tablet.
