A document is stored by Google Docs in the cloud under your Google account, which is more dispensable than hard drive storage but perfect for online sharing. However, how can you upload the google document from a computer straight to a flash drive?

I will explain how to save a Google Docs document and keep it on a USB flash drive in this article.

How To Save A Google Doc To A Flash Drive

Method 1

Connect your flash drive to your laptop. It should fit into one of the slender, rectangular holes in the case of your computer.
The front or rear of the computer’s CPU box often houses USB connections if you’re using a Windows desktop computer. If you have a Macbook, the USB ports can be on the back of the Macbook’s display or on the side of your keyboard. Not every Mac comes with USB ports. You may have to buy a USB-to type C  converter if you have a newer Mac that lacks USB ports.

  • Launch your Google Doc.
    The document you would like to download should be chosen. To choose a document, simply click on it once. To open a document that is contained within a folder, double-click the folder. It will open in a new window when you double-click it.
  • Click the three vertical dot menu icon that displays in the upper-right corner of the Google Drive window. There will be a drop-down menu.
  • To access this option, simply right-click the document in your Drive.
  • Tap on download. The drop-down menu’s bottom is where you’ll find it.  If the file is open, select File > Download, choose a format, and then choose your USB to save it to.
  • Select a flash drive. Your USB flash drive ought to show up in the window’s left-hand panel. If not, you must investigate the problem and have it fixed.
    Before moving on, you can rename the file if you prefer.
  • Select OK. It will be saved on your flash drive as a Google document in one of Google Docs, Google Slides, Google Sheets, or Google Forms. Before taking your flash drive out of the port, be certain that your computer is not using it.
  • Connect the USB flash drive to a different computer that can read and utilize it to access that file.

Method 2

  • Access the Google Docs folder.
  • Your Google document will open in the Chrome browser. Find the Google document you wish to download in the drive and then right-click on it.
  • You’ll see a menu appear in front of you. Find “Download” there, then click. When you click on it, a pdf version of the document will be downloaded to your computer.
  • Once the file has been downloaded, connect the Flash drive to your computer. A notification reading “USB device identified” will appear.
  • Click the app launcher now. Search for the “Files” app once it has opened, then click.
  • Right-click on the Google document you wish to save to the flash drive after finding it.
  • Select “Copy” from the menu that appears, and the document will be copied.
  • Right-click on an empty spot while still on the USB flash drive in the left sidebar. Once more, a menu will appear; this time, choose “Paste” to save your Google doc to the flash drive.
    To save a document to a certain folder, locate the folder first, then paste the document within it.
