How to Manage Google Drive Apps

 

The Ultimate to Google Drive

When Google rolled out the new Drive create menu, there was an increased focus on applications. To ensure users got the most out of Drive, Google made it a lot easier to install and access these apps.

Once you’ve installed an app, it’s important to know how to manage the settings, so you can make sure certain file types will be opened with the appropriate apps.

In this video, we’ll show you how to access the ‘Manage apps’ section of Drive. This will allow you to make an app the default for its supported file types, view all supported files or un-install the app.

To make an app the default for supported file types:

  1. From the settings menu, select Manage apps.
  2. Check the box next to “Make [selected app] the default for files it can open.”
  3. Click Done.

To uninstall a Google Drive app:

  1. From the settings menu, select Manage apps.
  2. Find the app in the list and click the Options button.
  3. Select Remove this app.
