upload pdf to docs


You receive an email with a PDF attachment and you want to save it into your Google Docs account. Here is one way to do it:

  1. At the bottom of the email that contains the PDF attachment, you will see a link to download the file. Click on that link. This will prompt your computer to save the file to your hard drive.


  2. Save the file in a location or folder that you are familiar with, like the My Documents folder. Then click on the Save button.


  3. Go to your Google Docs screen, click on the Upload button and choose the Files option.


  4. Browse to the location/folder that the PDF attachment was previously saved - in this example the My Documents folder. Double-click on the PDF file or single left click on the file then click on the Open button.


  5. On the Upload Settings popup window, ensure "covert text..." option is unchecked. Click on Start Upload button.


  6. The file is now saved into your Google Docs account! You are now free to drag that file to a folder (aka. "collection") along the left side of the main Google Docs screen.
