Google Drive for Desktop now allows more than one user to be logged in at a time. This is perfect for shared PCs that need access to more than one Drive at the same time. However, if one of the active Drives contains sensitive information, be aware that anyone who uses that PC while it is active will have access to the contents.

How to configure a new account

  • Click the Google Drive icon in the System Tray.
  • At the top of the pop-out, click on the name of the currently signed-in user.
  • Then, click on Add Account.
  • Follow the prompts to log in with a second account.
  • Now, check the System Tray icon again to confirm the changes worked.
  • You should now see both Drives simultaneously when going to This PC.
