Finding Google Drive
To open Google Drive you will need to launch the Chrome Browser. In the Apps Launcher (the 9 dots), choose Drive.
To create a new document, click new. Documents you create will be in located in My Drive. When people share documents with you, they will be located in the Shared With Me page within Google Drive. You can drag files from Shared With Me into My Drive. When you delete files they go into your trash but don't permanently get deleted until you empty your trash.
Files & File Options
All of your files appear on the main page of your drive. When you create folders, you may drag files into folders so they don't show up on your main page to organize your documents. You can open the options for a file by right-clicking it. You can share the document with other editors with the share button. If you don't want the document anymore, select remove and it will be put in your trash folder.
On the right side, above your folders/ file, you can find the customization area. You can change how your files are laid out by selecting the icon on the left. The middle icon will show your recent activity. The icon on the right will be your settings cog.
