Access your Drive files with Google File Stream

With Google Drive File Stream, you can access all all of your Google My Drive and Team Drive files directly from your computer without having to open a browser. You can also select files to make available for offline use for when you don’t have an internet connection.

You can transfer files between your computer and Drive or browse and organize your Drive files right in Windows Explorer.

The File Stream app also allows you to open files directly within applications like Microsoft Word. When you click File > Open, just browse to the Google File Stream Drive to locate your file.

OK first of all, that right there, that route on the map above, that is a terrible route. Do not take that route. I think it had gravel roads. And zero Caribou Coffees. ZERO. (Thank you Pat Persoon for showing us the correct route to go home!)

We got there just in time for Crockpotapalooza, which yes, is totally as amazing as you're thinking it sounds. A pot luck in our honor? Best office ever!

We settle into the conference room for our huge gut busting lunch.

We notice the conference room computer is repairing and restarting and making incessant beeping noises. Is this normal? we ask. No! they say, This is not normal at all! We investigate. Danny moves the Tostitos so we can see the situation better. Hey! Problem solved! The Tostitos were pressing a key on the keyboard.

Is this normal? we ask. No! they say, This is not normal at all!

I give my intro on Extension Technology's mission, and we deliver a training/demo on WebEx.

Then we get an office tour from our lovely tour guide, Karla Engels! One of my favorite parts of that was seeing the super sweet setup in Neil Linscheid's office--he has a great quality mic on a floor stand (for webinars) and he looks like a total rock star when he uses it.

Thank you Marshall, for such a wonderful day eating and laughing and seeing your very nice offices filled with amazing, friendly people!!
