Finding your documents

All documents you create are saved to your Google Drive where they 
are online and accessible to other devices, such as your smartphone 
or tablet. To find your documents, do the following:
1. Select the Launcher icon.
2. Select All Apps (or type "Google Drive").
3. Select the Google Drive icon.
4. Select My Drive (or whatever sub-folder you’ve created to put your 

files in).

Since your files are saved in Google Drive, they are saved online and 
available anywhere you have internet access. To access your files 
from any internet-connected computer  do the following:
1. Open the computer’s web browser.
2. In the browser’s address bar, type "drive.google.com" (this is the 

Google Drive web address).

3. Login using your Google account username and password.
4. Select My Drive (or whatever folder you’ve created to put your files 

in).
