Right Click to Save Content to Drive

When you come across an image, web-site, HTML5 video or audio track, etc that you want to save quickly – what do you normally do?

Chances are you right-click on the part of the page that you want and choose ‘Save As…’. This saves the item to your desktop.

But would you prefer to have these items saved directly to your Google Drive account, by-passing your computer altogether?

The Google Drive team hear you.
