Users have the option of creating documents in the following formats:

  1. Document (normal black document)
  2. Spreadsheet

  4. Form (survey)
  5. Drawing

Once created, a document in Google Drive will continue to autosave while being edited in Google Drive. Users also have the option of sharing files and collaborating with other users.

As shown in the video above, the easiest way to create a document in Google Drive is to navigate to the Google Drive homepage and click on the big red button at the top left of your screen.

A dropdown menu will appear allowing the user to select the desired file type.

Once created, the file will appear on the Google Drive homepage in the user’s list of files.
