Google Drive, the latest version of Google Docs as of the date of publication, stores your files online on Google's servers. Once you upload a PowerPoint presentation to Google Drive, you can access it from any computer with Internet access and share the file with others who have Google accounts. If you collaborate with colleagues in your company on a presentation and Google Drive stores the PowerPoint file, any team member can download the file, edit it and upload a revised version.

Navigate your browser to the main Google Drive page (see Resources).

Click the "Upload" button in the screen's sidebar to open a drop-down menu.

Click "Files" to launch the Open dialog box.

Navigate to and double-click your PowerPoint file to upload it to your Drive space.

Click "My Drive" to open a list of your uploaded files.

Click the check box beside the entry for the PowerPoint file you uploaded and click the "Share" icon to open the Share Settings pane.

Type collaborators' email addresses in the box labeled "Add people."

Click "Done" to share the file.
