  1. New PC doesn't recognise Google Drive as a location to save documents


    I have renewed my pc and now have the latest Windows 10. I currently save all my documents on a Gdrive, but can't directly save to my Gdrive on my new computer. I can't seem to get my pc to recognise my Gdrive as a locarion within which to save documents. I can access my G drive to retrieve documents without issue, but problems come when I need to make changes. Advice to solve this problem would be gratefully received!

    :)

    Documents being saved to OneDrive when I want them saved only to local PC

    To further assist you changing the default saving location of the document, kindly follow the steps below:

    1. Open an existing document or create a new document.

    2. Click File in the top-left portion of the window.

    3. Once you’re on the screen where you can see your existing documents, click
    Options
    .

    4. In the Options windows, select Save from the list of options on the left.

    5. To remove OneDrive as the default save location, find and check the box labeled
    Save to Computer by default. The default save location is your user Documents folder.

    6. If you do not wish Documents folder as your new default save location, you may choose to set a custom save location.

    7. Click Browse button next to the Default Local File Location box and navigate to the desired location on your PC.

    8. When you’ve made your selection, click OK to save it.

    9. Click OK again to close the Options window.

    10. After doing the following steps, you may need to restart the Office application for it to take effect.

    Let us know if you still have concerns.

    Regards.

    New PC doesn't recognise Google Drive as a location to save documents

    Can’t save word Documents to Google Drive on iPad

    That works perfectly - the iPad is up to date and I’ve already deleted and re-installed the google drive app but the issue still persisted. But your suggestion of saving to my ipad and then moving it to drive is brilliant.

    I still kind of wish that it worked natively and I don’t have to jump thorugh these hoops but I can’t have everything I suppose.

    thank you so much
