How To Access Google Drive From Ubuntu File Manager


Google Drive’s accessibility is much more versatile than we think it to be. For instance, one may think that Google drive can be accessed via its app on PC or Mobile or through the browser, but they might not know that it can also be accessed via file managers. Ubuntu is a robust system that has unparalleled security and system stability. In this guide, we’ll go over the steps to access your google drive account and its files via the Ubuntu File Manager.

File Manager is no different from Google Drive in its functions, as it lets you edit, rearrange, copy, paste and rename all your files from several different file types. The only difference between Drive and File Manager is that the latter is required to be used on specific hardware, while the former allows you to access the duplicate files on your computer with your mobile phone or your Mom’s.

How to Access Drive via File Manager?

To access your Google Drive using Ubuntu File Manager, open the terminal, type ‘gnome-control-center’, and hit enter. A new window will open > click on Online Account > click ‘Add an account’ and select Google. Login to your Google account, and Gnome will ask for permission, allow it and another window will open with a list of features. Select the ones you want to use.

You’ll see your email at the bottom of the Ubuntu File Manager window; this means you can now access Google Drive by clicking on it.

That is all for our guide on how to access Google Driver using Ubuntu File Manager. If you are facing errors and issues with other PC games or your PC, then also see our hub for commonly occurring PC errors and their fixes.
