Save something to Google Drive

Right-click on a link, image, HTML5 audio, or HTML5 video and choose one of the following options to access these items later directly from Drive:

  • For links and URLs: “Save Link to Google Drive”
  • For images: “Save Image to Google Drive”
  • For HTML5 audio: “Save Audio to Google Drive”
  • For HTML5 video: “Save Video to Google Drive”
Not all audio and video files on the web are published yet in the HTML5 format, which means not every audio or video file can be saved to your Drive.

Click on the Drive icon in the upper-right hand corner of Chrome to save the current webpage for future viewing.

You can adjust your settings for both of these by right-clicking on the Drive icon in the upper-right of your Chrome browser and choosing Options. From there, you can select your preferred format for saving webpages as well as whether you would prefer to save uploaded files as Google documents, spreadsheets, or presentations.
