Accessing Google Drive Offline

< 1 minute read

Google Drive is a great place to store your files in the cloud, and with a few easy steps you can store them on your local device as well.

Google Drive is available offline in your Chrome browser, along with the Chrome OS (operating system for Chromebooks).

The first thing you’ll need to do is install the Google Drive web app, which is available in the Chrome Webstore, but comes preinstalled on your Chromebooks.

From there, it’s as simple as enabling offline access to your Google Drive account inside the browser. Since these files will be stored locally, it’s important to keep in mind that this feature should not be enabled for public or shared devices, as anyone may be able to access your files.
