Google Drive is a handy way to keep documents synced across multiple machines, but it's not much help if you're in an office environment where you can't install the software. Lifehacker reader Joshua points out that if you're in that situation, using drag and drop can be a much easier way to upload documents to Google Drive you want to get at elsewhere.
As Joshua explains:
I use Google Drive at work and so cannot install the application to my machine here as I can on my laptop. For a while I was downloading docs and then going to the website and using the standard Upload procedure. But a few days ago I found that, if you use Chrome, you can drag the downloaded document from the downloads bar right into the Google Drive page and it will upload from there. It's definitely made things easier for me and I'll keep using this function until I find a portable Google Drive application for Windows.
We mentioned this feature a while back, but it's worth a reminder now that Google Drive is more commonly used. Thanks Joshua!
