New to using google drive. I have google sheets sent to me via gmail with a share option. I choose share and can see and open them under shared with me. My question is do I need to download these files into my google drive as I will be using them? Or if I choose to share from the email link will they automatically be in my google drive? Not sure the process and Thanks. I can see them under the shared with me.
