22 Jan Save to Google Drive when browsing in Chrome
This handy tip let’s you save pretty much anything you find on the web (if you’re using Chrome) straight to Google Drive.
To get started, you will need to install a Chrome extension. To do this, visit the Chrome webstore and click on the ‘Extensions’ tab.
Type ‘Save to Google Drive’ into the search bar and click on the Save to Google Drive extension shown below (you can fine the direct link here). To install it, click on the +FREE button.
You will be prompted to add the extension. Once installed, a small Google Drive icon will appear at the top right hand side of your Chrome browser, alongside any other Chrome extension you may have installed.
Next time you visit a web page, you can just tap on the Google Drive icon, and it will instantly add a photo of the whole webpage content to your Google Drive.
If you head into your Google Drive folder, you should then see a new file which has the title of the webpage you have saved. This is usually saved as a .png file, and it stores all the relevant content from the webpage.
This is a great way to save content that you want to revisit or share with a colleague, and allows you to fit the whole content from one page into an image, which you may not have been able to do with screenshots.
