What is Google Drive?


What is Google Drive and how is it different from Google Docs?

Google Drive is the place to access all your files, including both Google Docs and local files that you sync to the cloud. It is everywhere you are. Think of it as your personal stash of files and folders that follow you wherever you go.  It is available for PC and Mac, Chrome OS,  iPhones and iPads, as well as Android devices. If you used Google Docs prior to April, 2012, Google Drive replaces and enhances what you've previously known as the Google Documents List.
Google Docs refers to the editors for Google documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and forms. These online documents live in the cloud and provide real-time collaboration features.  
For more information on how to use your Google Drive go to:

Tip of the Week:    Convert a List in Microsoft Word into a Table 
If I create a list inside of a Word document using tabs but I need to change it to a table it is easy to do.  Highlight the list, go to Insert, use the dropdown menu on the Table, then go to "convert text to a table".  Click ok.  Adjustments may have to be made but any extra columns are easliy deleted.
