Google Preview Mode

Do you have Microsoft Office files in your Google Drive account? When you click on them to open, it always opens as a preview. Did you ever wonder if you could do anything else with this preview? Well, you can!

Of course, you can print and download the file, but if you are collaborating with other people, you can also comment on the file.

Highlight what text you want to comment on, and then the comment icon will appear off to the side. Comment on the file just like you would do in an actual Google file. read more

Curating Content Part 2: Google Drive

This is the second in a series of articles on Curating your Digital Life. In the first article we looked at curation of bookmarks.

If you are like me, your Google Drive started out with a few documents but much like its older cousin (The My Documents folder in Windows) a lot of stuff has been dumped in there and it is really in need of some organization. Fortunately, Google has provided us with the means of organizing Google Drive so that we can make our lives a bit easier.

The first of these is the star feature. Starred documents appear in the Starred section in the sidebar of Google Drive. read more

Where is that File??!!

Do you save everything in Google Drive, but when trying to locate it, you can’t find it?  You probably use the search feature of Drive, but you may not be familiar with the Advanced Search in Drive.

To find a file in your Google Drive, click on the search bar at the top of your page.

Search Google Drive

You can type in any keyword here and even specify the file type.

If this gives you too much to search through, you can do a more advanced search. Click on the drop down arrow on the side of Search Drive and the advanced search will open up. read more
