How to Save Online Text and Images Directly to Google Drive

I spend a lot of time in Google Drive, using it as a Microsoft Office replacement. In my quest to find fun and interesting ways to use it, I have discovered some useful extensions. To make things faster, I recommend using add-ons or shortcuts if you use this service frequently. Google Drive is such a useful tool that we have even covered how to use it offline.

Today, I will discuss three Google Chrome extensions that make it easy to save web content or online articles in Google Drive. These extensions work on any website and simplify the process of saving images or text. You can simply right-click on an image and save it directly to Google Drive. Additionally, there are two extensions that allow you to save online articles as PDFs or image files.

Let’s explore these extensions one by one.

Save Text to Google Drive

Save Text to Google Drive is a Chrome extension that allows you to save plain text directly to your Google Drive. To use it, you must give the extension access to your Google Drive account. Simply click on the extension icon in the Chrome navigation bar to open the window and manage the text you want to save. You can edit the content or title before saving the file, and it will appear in your Google Drive. For more tips, check out this article on storing Gmail attachments in Google Drive.
