Google Drive View - Guest Blog Post

in professional development, teacher PD, teachers, teaching, tech integration

Guest Post by Maria Burnham, Library Media Specialist

In Google Drive, remember that you can view your Drive folders and files in list view (default) or in "Grid View" if you prefer.  

One advantage to the Grid View is that you can see a preview of pictures uploaded to your Drive better than in list view.

To change to Grid View, look for the 2 x 2 grid of squares in the upper right corner of your drive screen.  

 

To switch back to list view, simply click on the icon of horizontal lines.  

Remember, Atomic Learning has training on Google Drive, if you want to learn more!
