Image from store Save to Google Drive
Description from store The Save to Google Drive Chrome extension helps you save web content or browser screenshots to your Google Drive. * Adds a browser action to save the current page. * Adds a right-click context menu to save hyperlinks and media. * Configurable through an options page. * Save a PDF of the current page via the Chrome Print menu This extension allows you to save web content directly to Google Drive through a browser action or context menu. You can save documents, images, and HTML5 audio and video all by right clicking and selecting 'Save to Google Drive'. You can save the currently viewed page using the 'Save to Google Drive' browser action or as a PDF from the Chrome Print menu.. The directory location and format of saved HTML pages can be controlled with the extension's options page (Choice of Entire image (default), Visible image, Raw HTML, MHTML, or Google Doc). You can automatically convert Microsoft Office files or comma separated files to Google Docs format. After your content is saved, the progress dialog allows you to open the file, rename, or view the file in the Google Drive document list. From the document list, you can organize and share your new document. To save a file:// URLs, or to enable in incognito mode, go to chrome://extensions/ and enable the associated checkbox. Due to security restrictions, this extension cannot capture chrome:// pages or Chrome Web Store pages. New in Version 2.3.8: * Fixes authorization bug. New in Version 2.3.2: * Fixes a bug where certain PDF files would save without an extension name. New in Version 2.3.1: * Bug fixes. * Allows for the printing of the current page from Google Chrome to Google Drive, as a PDF. Note: Currently Google Chrome provides this feature natively, but this native feature will soon be replaced fully by this Chrome Extension's similar feature. New in Version 2.1.1: Bug fixes. New in Version 2.1: Authorization now requires you to be signed into Chrome. In order to save to a different Google Drive account, you must change Chrome profiles. New in Version 2.0.1: Bug fix for Authentication page redirecting to about:blank after clicking Accept. New in Version 2: * Uses OAuth2 authentication flow, so you will need to re-authenticate on first use * Ability to choose destination folder (configured in Options page) * Support for high devicePixelRatio (Chrome Pixel & Retina displays) * Clicking saved folder name displays the newly uploaded file in the destination directory * Options are stored in shared storage, so are synchronized across browsers if Chrome Sync is enabled.

  • (2022-08-05) Jax Carroll: Doesn't work. Screen flashes like something happens. But nothing is saved because there is no destination folder set. Clicking the option for changing the destination folder gives an error "403. That’s an error. We're sorry, but you do not have access to this page. That’s all we know."
  • (2022-07-28) alekss: It is Buggy and this thing even didn't work for me - Page size is not supported: 1424x0 Or It just didn't save files in drive at all and have just to download file and then upload to drive manually
  • (2022-07-16) Frog Boi: Worked well when my window was minimized, but when window was full screen it would switch my window to my desktop window, and I would have to go back into chrome. It didn't crash chrome, but just caused an inconvenience.
  • (2022-07-15) Muito útil para fazer backup de arquivos sem fechar a tela onde estou trabalhando!
  • (2022-07-14) Chris Sherlock: This extension used to work quite well. I've had it on my laptop for a long time, although I haven't always used it. Today, I needed to save a couple of pages and tried to use it. Didn't work. This is the message I got: Image capture failed (This request exceeds the MAX_CAPTURE_VISIBLE_TAB_CALLS_PER_SECOND quota.) I see from reading previous reviews that I'm not alone in getting this error. Since I don't have time to research a solution--if there even is one--or tweak a buggy extension, I'll just be deleting this.
  • (2022-07-04) Guilherme Gustavo Gonçalves Luks: Muito útil para fazer backup de arquivos sem fechar a tela onde estou trabalhando!
  • (2022-06-28) Mike Garofolo: Hot trash. Doesn't even work a little bit.
  • (2022-06-27) Mouse Scarbrow: Works perfectly, except for the odd glitch. Also, once I chose a specific GDrive folder to save to, I was unable to revert my settings back to saving in My Drive - I had to reinstall the extension to fix it. Edit: Two years later, it doesn't work. It started with an error on some sites about maxing-out tab-something-or-others, and now it just refuses to work entirely, giving "You must authorize Save to Google Drive." Edit 2: All else works fine, yet we still have, "This request exceeds the MAX_CAPTURE_VISIBLE_TAB_CALLS_PER_SECOND quota."
  • (2022-06-25) Artur Perzyna: It is useful when works. Trying to capture whole page to .PNG (wish there was .JPG option). But having this error instead: Image capture failed (This request exceeds the MAX_CAPTURE_VISIBLE_TAB_CALLS_PER_SECOND quota.) Please fix.
  • (2022-06-24) Mark Zeta: It has worked wonderfully for me to save a lot of online receipts. Up until latest version of Chrome where it fails with MAX_CAPTURE_VISIBLE_TAB_CALLS_PER_SECOND with more info here: https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/g/chromium-extensions/c/sQUlaHXjlhY Update 6/23/2022: There's an easy saving to Google Drive where it crops the image incorrectly. This is for the home depot online order receipts. Url would be https://www.homedepot.com/order/view/onlineorder/receipt
  • (2022-06-15) Nelly David: I have been using it for years and it has never disappointed me when it comes to downloading my files and saving images, with GOOGLE DRIVE, you are sure that your documents and images are safe for future use. The only disadvantage is that if you don't name your files you cannot differentiate them from the others.
  • (2022-06-10) Mariano Scagliotti: Es una lástima que después de un uso siempre tire el error MAX_CAPTURE_VISIBLE_TAB_CALLS_PER_SECOND.

  • (2022-04-12) David: Not possible to save large files (here I would see the largest benefit, hence it would save a lot of time)... Tried 1.6 GB and 5 GB. Both didn´t work

  • (2022-03-26) Judah Stevenson: Complete garbage. Will not save as any other format but .png no matter what you configure in the options settings.
  • (2022-03-16) Bruno Déry: Does Not Work! It seemed like a great tool to integrate into my google products, but not working at all. I simply get an error notification (in MS Edge): "you must authorize save to google drive" error. With no easy explanations how to resolve this error. I looked into the extension options but did not find anything. So sadly, it's another FAIL, Google!! I'm starting to really consider avoiding Google products, getting fed up of all these hiccups that never get solved...

  • (2020-10-04, v:2.1.1) Rose Stafford: Save destination can't be changed back from sub-folder to main Drive
    I changed my "save to folder" destination to a folder within my drive because I had several pages that were all going to that location. I thought I would be able to change it back to its default - being saved in my main Google Drive, not a folder within it. However, I cannot find a way to do that. In the pop up message, I hit "change," which brings me to the "Save to Google Drive extension options" page. When I hit "change destination folder," there is no option to reset it to just save to my main drive folder. I am only permitted to select one of the subfolders within it (i.e., cannot go up a level).

Optei por instala-lo no M. Edge, depois da última atualização e a possibilidade de usar as extensões da Chrome Web Store.

  • (2020-08-11, v:2.1.1) Edward Gomez: How to Authorize Save to Google Drive on Edge Browser
    Hello, I am using Microsoft Edge and installed your app there. Each time I use it, I get a pop-up on the lower right saying: "You must autohorize Save to Google Drive" but there is no clear method to an authorization window of any kind. Clicking on the pop-up gives one the impression that one is going to be connected to some kind of authorization window but then nothing really comes up. Is there a way to do this or has Save to Google Drive not yet been implemented on the Edge platform? I have never had a problem with the extension on the Chrome browser but the new version of Edge is looking nicer these days and it would be great to have that functionality there. Thank you for any help with this, Edward

I am using a Samsung Chromebook, I uninstalled and the reinstalled the app. Folders still not showing in the list. I've cleared cache/browsing data but still no success. Can you help.

It seems that this extension should automatically connect to one's Google account but it won't do that for me. Please look into this.

Please just enable it. Inventing security concerns is not helpful to anyone. If I didn't want it to upload a local file, I wouldn't have clicked on the button!

  • (2020-05-09, v:2.1.1) Mark Kamoski: This is a wishlist item for the Save To Drive extension.
    Please add functionality such that the extension will do the following. (1) The extension will prompt the end user to select a Drive folder that will hold the saved file. (2) The extension will automatically auto fill the Drive folder that was last used. (3) The extension will allow one to choose PDF as the output format. I am a developer too, so I know these might be hard, but I just thought I should suggest them anyway, and yours is the best-in-class already, so this are just minor improvement. Thanks. -- Mark Kamoski

  • (2020-04-30, v:2.1.1) Byron Hawkins: url of upload in popup
    Hi, is it possible to see the URL of the download inside the small popup window? It currently shows the filename, but often this does not represent the file in any meaningful way. Often I save 10 or more files at a time, and after they are saved, it takes a long time to open each one in my drive (to see what it is) and then give the file a useful name. If the popup would show the URL of the file and also the URL of the page where it was accessed, then I could use the "Rename" button on the popup. Please let me know if I can do this. Thanks!
