How to restrict users from saving files locally


You need to prevent users from saving downloads in files folder and use Google Drive instead.


  • Chrome OS


  • Go to the Admin Console.  
  • Devices > Chrome > Settings > Users and Browsers.
  • Locate the Download Location setting.
  • Change it to Force Google drive.
  • Save the changes. 
  • Please be aware that the user can always move the file after the download.


By default, users are able to select local folder if this setting is not changed
