Welcome

Welcome to this first look of Google Docs and Google Sheets. Docs and Sheets are a pair of free apps offered by Google, which let you quickly create, view, and edit both documents and spreadsheets, that are stored on a Google Drive account. If you're not already familiar with Google Drive, it's a good idea to check out Google Drive essential training on lynda.com, to familiarize yourself with Drive's main features. For now, we'll dive into this first look, assuming you already have some documents stored and organized on your Google Drive account.

We'll start by taking a look at the Google Docs app. Docs, as they're referred to on the Google Drive system, are word processing and page layout documents. Similar to a Microsoft Word document. We're going to see how to open and edit documents that are already stored on your Google Drive. We'll also take a look at how to quickly create and save new documents. Next, we'll take a look at Google Sheets, which is the app dedicated to working with spreadsheets on your Google Drive. We'll see how you can browse and search your spreadsheet documents on Google Drive, and make changes to them directly on your device.

We'll finish by taking a look at the Google Drive app, which is a separate app offered by Google, which allows you to browse and edit all of your Google Drive files. We'll take a look at the features shared by all three of these apps, and explore when you might choose one over the other. So, let's get started with a first look at Google Docs and Google Sheets.
