Just Snip and Run…

When creating instructional tutorials sometimes a snippet tool comes in handy. This is a very easy task when working with my computer where the Google Drive APP is installed on my local drive. However this isn’t always the case! This is when Google Chrome extensions work their magic!!! I discovered using the Save to Google Drive Extension in conjunction with the Awesome Screenshot Extension makes it relatively easy to snip an area save it right into a Chrome Browser’s Google Drive Folder.
