Google Drive Direct Link Generator

NOTES

  • Make sure your file's visibility in Google Drive is set to "Anyone with the link". If it's set to "Restricted" then only people who are logged in to Google and have been granted access to the file will be able to open the direct link (which probably isn't what you want).
  • This will only work for files that you UPLOAD to Google Drive. It will not work for documents, presentations, etc. created inside Google Docs/Drive. If you want to create a direct link to those, first download them to your computer then upload that file back on to Google Drive.
