Create Direct Download Links From Uploaded Google Drive Files or Folders With “G-Drive Linker”

You are probably wondering, ‘Why would I want to create download links from uploaded Google Drive Files or Folders?’.

From a personal (and business) stand point, being able to send a Google Drive file and not have to worry about if the receiver can figure out how to download it is a major plus. There are many reasons why creating a direct link to a file is useful, and luckily there is an easy way to do this. It is called “G-Drive Linker“.

G-Drive Linker is a utility that can turn any single link download into a professional direct link without the distraction of Google Drive popping up. No more confused customers not knowing how to download their files. With G-Drive Linker simply paste your shareable link from Google Drive into the open box and your URL is automatically converted into a single link download that anyone can access. The documents are downloaded without any Google Drive window popping up, keeping all of your other files secure! Once the “direct download links” are created, you can then export  the links into a shared CSV spreadsheet. This spreadsheet can be opened with any spreadsheet application or even a basic text editor, ensuring that anyone can view and download your shared files.

The developer of “G-Drive Linker” (Gray Technical) had reached out to “What’s On My PC” and asked if I would do a post on this product. If you visit “Gray Technical” web site you will find they have many business related software products that range from graphic design, cad software, excel software and utility software.

Download, unzip, and run BrowserAddonsView to display the browser addons and plugins (i.e. extensions) that have been installed on your system. I ran this on my PC and it quickly (lightning speed) picked up every single extension I had installed. I can see this being used to troubleshoot issues where a rogue browser extension (or plugin) has been installed and has compromised the operation of your computer, your privacy, and your security.
