Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Downloading your files, part of Migrating from Office 2013 to Google Apps.
- In the next chapter, I'm gonna talk a little bit…about creating Google Docs themselves.…But let's talk about downloading them.…Now if you are currently on the same computer…as one that you've installed the desktop app,…you shouldn't ever need to download…your files from the browser.…They're already syncing via the desktop app.…However, let's say you're using your Google Slides…to make a presentation and you need to get…your presentation onto a different computer,…say one that's hooked up to a projector.…
You can log onto your Google account…on that computer that's hooked up to the projector,…download your file, and then log out.…Alternatively, you can log into any computer…by visiting drive.google.com,…download your file,…copy it to a portable USB flash drive,…and take it over to a different computer.…However, you always need to remember…if you're doing this,…to sign out when you're done.…And you can do that by clicking…on the top right hand side of the screen,…clicking the down arrow or your Avatar…if you've added one to your profile,…

Q: Will this course help me migrate from Office 365 to Google apps?
A: It will if you use the desktop version of Office 365. If you use the Office 365 apps online through a web browser only, this course will be helpful in terms of general concepts, but there are enough differences between the desktop and online versions of Office that many specific instructions won't apply.
