Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the preview lightbox to find your files, part of Migrating from Office 2013 to Google Apps.
- I want to take a minute to explain…the preview lightbox in Google Drive.…When you click on a file that's not a Google doc,…such as this pdf file here,…you'll get a lightbox preview of your document.…There's a few things that you can do in the lightbox.…You can scroll through the document…and read it in it's entirety,…you can also navigate through your files on Google Drive…by clicking through the left and the right arrows…in the center of your screen.…I'm going through all the files…that's currently in my Google Drive.…
You can also edit your file if it can be editable.…You can share it with another user,…you can download it to whatever computer…you happen to be on.…And if you click the three dots…you can add a star to favorite the file…so that you can find it quickly,…or you can also rename it.…Finally, you can see the details of the file,…such as when it was created.…You can also pop it out of the lightbox…into its own window.…
And from here to get back to that main Google Drive screen…you can click the X…in the top right hand side of the lightbox,…
