Make direct download link for Google Drive file and similar sites - friendlylearn.com

More people have a Google account, and also they use Google Drive to keep sync their files with all their devices. Sometimes can be happen to share a file with a friend or someone else and we need a direct download link without redirect other people to Google Drive, like other service over internet. A few steps allow us to avoiding to upload those files another time.




Step 1: Open your Google Drive account and upload the files you want to share using Google Drive. If the files are already uploaded to your account, select them and click the Share icon at the top. Alternatively, you can right-click on the file and select the share option form the context menu.


Step 2: Select Anyone with the link.


Step 3: Open the file and look for the code in the address bar:


Step 4:
Then the direct downloadable link of the file is:

http://drive.google.com/uc?id="CODE"


Where "CODE" is the previous code in the address bar. In this example the resulting direct link is:

http://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B02ucIdZGBCfWjNNdnpXYmFZOGM


Example:

Original Link: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B02ucIdZGBCfWjNNdnpXYmFZOGM/edit?pli=1

 Change to

http://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B02ucIdZGBCfWjNNdnpXYmFZOGM
