Google Drive Tips, Tricks, and Ideas

Google Drive is a evolutionary (and, at times, revolutionary) set of online tools that you can use to perform tasks historically requiring expensive business software. Drive includes a word processor (Docs), a spreadsheet program (Sheets), a presentation program (Slides), and an assortment of other tools that can help you channel your creative juices. Best of all—Google Drive is free!

Even though Google Drive is a breakthrough set of tools, that doesn't mean that they are problem free. I'm not talking about bugs in the programs; I'm talking about the frustrations that naturally arise when you can't make the programs do what you need them to do.

DriveTips is designed to help you figure out how to do the things you need to do with any of the programs that make up Google Drive. At this site (and in the accompanying newsletter) you can find answers to your Drive questions, and those answers are free, just like Drive itself. This site contains a growing number of tips, tricks, and ideas on how to use the Drive programs better, faster, and more easily.

In addition, we publish a free weekly newsletter called (appropriately enough) DriveTips. You can sign up for the newsletter by using the simple sign-up form at the right side of this page or any page on the DriveTips website.

You can quickly access the answers you need on this site in two ways:

  1. Browse through the index by clicking on the links below. (A bracketed number after a topic indicates the number of articles related to that topic. Click on the topic, not on the article count.)
  2. Enter your question or keywords in the search box at the top-right corner of every page.

This website is part of the Tips.Net network, where you can find all sorts of ideas for making your life easier, more productive, and more thrifty.
