Saving to Google Drive

STUDENTS -- Saving Information to Google Drive

Did you know that ACC provides a place online where STUDENTS & EMPLOYEES can store and even edit documents from anywhere you have access to the internet?

If you have activated your ACCmail account (emailname@g.austincc.edu), you have access to many online Google applications like Google Documents. [See more information about this.]


Instruction on how to save to Google Documents can be found at Google Docs Basics.
Note: Unless you want to edit the document online in Google Docs, you do not have to convert it to Google docs format.

Saving Your Files

*** Save Your Work Often ***

**  Save Your Files to a USB flash drive or to your ACC Google Drive account   **

NOTE: If you are a STUDENT, the computer will log off after 10 minutes of inactivity
If you are a VISITOR, your time on the computer is limited to 30 minutes. (Guests/Visitors, please see this FAQ.)

Saving to Portable Drive

Saving Information to portable storage (e.g.,USB drive)

Insert a portable storage device (USB/Thumb drive).

  • Go to page you wish to save.
  • Click Save As.
  • In the pop-up window, click on the down arrow in the Save in window at the top or Browse to the appropriate drive.
  • Choose the drive where your portable storage is.
  • In the File name window, type a name.
    • If you will want to use the information later for word processing, make sure the file name ends in .txt.
    • If you will want to look at the information later as a web page, make sure the file name ends in .htm or .html.
  • Click Save.
  • Remove USB drive safely.
    • Note: Saving web pages in HTML format (.htm or .html) will automatically create a folder for any graphics associated with the web page.  This can take up a lot of space on your USB drive.
