- If you are a premium member of Lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. I've already downloaded the exercise files here to my desktop, so I've got this Exercise Files folder here. And if I open it up, I just have a bunch of different Microsoft Office documents. I've got some Word documents, some PowerPoint documents, and some Excel documents. There's also one video file that we'll use in the chapter on working with PowerPoint, as well as a folder full of images. If I double-click on that, this is just a bunch of photographs that we can use in the chapter on working with PowerPoint.
You will not need exercise files for the first chapter in this course, which is all about downloading files from Google Drive. You can use the files that you may have on your Google Drive or you can just follow along and see what I do. You also will not need exercise files for the chapter on using Outlook or online storage options. As we go through the course, you'll see an overlay on screen referring to which file you should open up at any given time. If you are a standard annual or monthly member, you do not have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along with your own assets.
Now, let's get started.
