How to find Google Docs / Google Drive in Gmail and from any Google service.

How do I find Google Docs / Google Drive in Gmail?

If you’re asking yourself this question, you’re not alone.

Since Google changed the name of Google Docs to Google Drive in 2012, many people have had difficulties adjusting to the name change and, in turn, accessing Google Docs / Drive.

The video tutorial below will show you how to easily access Google Docs / Drive from Gmail and all of the other Google services.

When using Gmail, or any Google service other than YouTube, there is a black toolbar that goes across the top of the screen.

This toolbar contains links to the most popular Google services. To access Google Drive / Docs, simply click on the “Drive” link located in the black toolbar and, voila, you’re in Google Docs / Drive!

For more detailed instructions on how to access Google Docs / Drive from Gmail, take a look at the video tutorial below.
