If you would like an easier way to access your Google Drive without logging into Google then install Google Drive Sync.

Google Drive Sync will synchronize your files in both directions, To Google Drive from your computer and To your computer from Google Drive.  This is done by a folder named Google Drive being created on your workstation.  Anything you save in this location will then be uploaded to your Google Drive and vice versa.  Anything saved in your google drive will then be saved to the Google Drive folder on your workstation.  You will no longer have to log into Google's website to create, view, or edit your docs, slides, or sheets while using your LU workstation or laptop.  To install the Google Drive Sync application follow the instructions below.
