No Google Drive when opening / saving files on Chromebook

To enable it (for your Google account):

  1. Sign into any Chromebook and launch Chrome.
  2. Click the 3-dot icon in the top-right corner and choose Settings.
  3. In the top search bar, search for Disconnect Google Drive account and ensure the setting is turned off.

If the Disconnect Google Drive account switch is dimmed out, the setting is controlled by your Google Admin (see below).

For IT Professionals

  1. Sign into
  2. Go to Devices > Chrome > Settings > Users & browsers.
  3. Select the appropriate Org Unit on the left.
  4. In the Content section, ensure that Google Drive syncing and Google Drive syncing over mobile are set to enabled.
