Thanks for posting Sherif! 

 

You can access google drive offline by changing your settings. 

 

Google drive:

  1. On a Chrome browser, go to drive.google.com.
  2. In the top right, click the Settings icon 
  3. Choose Settings.
  4. Check the box next to "Sync Google Docs, Sheets, Slides and Drawings files to this computer so that you can edit offline." To disable offline access, uncheck the box.

 

Docs, Sheets and Slides homescreens:

  1. On a Chrome browser, open the Docs, Sheets, or Slides homescreen.
  2. On the left, click the Menu icon .
  3. Choose Settings.
  4. Click Turn on. To disable offline access, click Turn off.

Your files and folders will automatically be synced so that they'll be available without an Internet connection.
