Google Drive Direct Download Link Generator in 2024

With this tool you can create a direct download link for your files stored in Google Drive. Unlike regular links, direct links start file downloads immediately, bypassing the need to open a file preview within Google Drive.




Professionals and people often use different websites like Wetransfer to send files to each other. But these websites usually make the links expire after a short time, like a week. To solve this problem, some people use Google Drive links. These links don't expire, and you can send big files, even ones that are over 2 GB. But some folks are worried about sharing Google Drive links because they think it means giving access to all their files. That's where the "Direct Download Link" comes in handy. It's a tool that lets you create a special link just for downloading a file without showing everything in your Google Drive. So, you can share files easily without worrying about someone seeing all your stuff.

Things to Know Before Using this Tool

  1. Make sure your file in Google Drive is set to "Anyone with the link" for visibility. If it's set to "restricted," only specific people with access can use the link.
  2. This tool only works for files you upload, not for documents made in Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides.
  3. Sometimes, for big files, Google might not check them for viruses. If that happens, there'll be a button to download the file directly.

How to Generate a Download Link in Google Drive

  1. Go to the Google Drive website and log in.
  2. Find the file you want to share.
  3. Right-click the file and choose "Share."
