How to Sign Into Google Drive

When you create a Google Account, such as when you sign up for Gmail, you gain access to a number of different features and applications.

One of these features is Google Drive, which provides you with some free cloud storage that you can use to make some of your files accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection. You can upload files to Google Drive from your computer, and files that you create in Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides are stored there as well.

Signing into Google Drive is possible from a number of different locations. For example, if you click the Apps icon at the top-right corner of your Gmail inbox, you should see a Drive icon. Clicking that will take you to your Google Drive.

If you don’t see a Drive icon there, select the More option, then choose the Drive option from there.

It’s also possible to navigate directly to Google Drive by going to this address – https://drive.google.com. If you’re already signed into your Google Account then you will see some navigational tabs at the left side of the window, as well as a listing of your Google Drive files.

One additional option that you could consider if you have multiple Google users on the same computer is to sign into one Google Account in one Web browser, such as Google Chrome, then sign into a different Google Account on another Web browser, such as Mozilla’s Firefox or Microsoft Edge.
