    Create a desktop icon for Google Drive?


    I have installed Google Drive, and can access my uploaded files from a Speed Dial icon within Opera Browser.
    This works fine! But there is no desktop or system tray icon, and without uninstalling and re-installing Google Drive there is no way to fix this, and uninstalling would mean I have to upload all my files again?
    Is there a fairly simple way to create an icon on the desktop that will open Google Drive using the URL?

    :)

    Some Google Shortcut Icons appear as empty folders when I choose to display the medium size icon on desktop

    Hello,

    Your desktop icons are an awesome way to keep track of your favorite programs. Since you mentioned that you've successfully updated the icons for your Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar and Google Contacts then that means they should be easier to find.

    The Gmail and Google Contact desktop icons doesn't show up with the updated picture when they're viewed in medium size. To resolve the issue, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Where did you download the icons?
    • Can you give us a screenshot of the medium-sized icons on your desktop?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    We'll keep an eye out for your reply.
