The Files Folder

Chromebooks come equipped with a 16GB hard drive. This allows users to download files and access them offline. The Files Folder is accessible through the Apps Launcher and can be pinned to the Launch Bar for easy access. The Chrome OS has folders for Downloads and Google Drive. Any file that is downloaded to a Chromebook will be stored in the Downloads section of the Files Folder. Users can create sub folders in Downloads to organize files.

The Google Drive folder will contain all files that have been created in a user's Google Apps Account. Users will be able to access these documents online or offline due to the fact that they are saved to the computer's internal storage as well as Google’s cloud-based storage.


In addition, any flash drive that is plugged into the Chromebook will be accessible through the same Files Folder.
