Google Drive has many neat options, that I'll probably never use.
I just use it to host files that I want to share with others. This is how I do it.
I navigate to
And, if I'm already signed in to my Google account (through gmail, blogspot, picasa or youtube) I see the following page. I click on the Upload icon, near the top left.
I choose Files,
then browse to find and choose the file. I click on Open.
When the upload is complete I see,
I click on Share and then I see the following screen.
I click on Change and then choose the button that lets me share the file with anyone who has the link for this file.
I click on Save and then Done.
When I see this page again I find the file that I uploaded and click on it.
When the web page with the file opens I check that I've uploaded the correct file then I copy the web address and share it.
