  • Open your Amityschools.org Drive.

  • Multiple select (highlight) all the documents you want to keep.

  • Log out of Amityschools.org.

Option 2: If you have a number of folders with documents.

  • Work in Chrome.

  • Open your Amityschools.org Drive.

  • Create a new folder, and drag all the folders and docs you want to copy into it.

  • Select the folder with everything in it.

  • Right click to share it with your OUTSIDE gmail account (viewing privileges is enough).

  • Log out of Amityschools.org.

 

 

  • Log into your OUTSIDE Gmail account, go to your Drive.

  • Go to the Chromestore.
