I am using Windows 10. I have Google Drive installed on my computer. However, if I want to save anything to it I have to first download the file to my desktop and then drag it into the Drive. Likewise, to get things out I have to download it onto my desktop and then attach it to an email. Does anybody know how to get Google Drive to appear on the sidebar of my Explorer? The side where it says Desktop/Downloads/Documents/This PC/Network etc. Any help is appreciated.

It's been a while since I used Google Drive so I don't remember the exact directory it uses, but it creates a folder somewhere where all of your files are saved. Somewhere under your user folder (C:\Users\Porksta\). It's either going to have it's own folder in that directory, or it will be under Documents, I'm guessing.

Just find the folder and drag it over to the sidebar to create the shortcut. Even without the shortcut, you could still drill down to that folder to save files directly to it, instead of putting them on the desktop first. Same for retrieving files for uploads/attachments/etc.
