History of Google Chrome
Google Chrome 64-bit was released in 2014. The browser, Google Chrome utilizes a minimalistic approach to design with all the technological sophistication that needs to come with a faster, safer, and more stable web browser.

Chrome is now optimized to run on 64-bit processors running Windows. If you are running a Windows operating system of 7, 8, 8.1, or 10, on a computer that uses a 64-bit processor, then you can use Google Chrome 64-bit.
What is Included in Google Chrome 64-bit?
Its top three upgraded features are arguably made just for 64-bit processor users.
In terms of speed, of course, 64-bit processors are faster than the 32-bit processors; so Google claims on average; 64-bit users of Google Chrome 64-bit will see around twenty-five percent improvement in performance, especially when viewing visual elements.
Google states that the 64-bit version of Google Chrome overall helps improve the quality and speed of High Definition videos on YouTube.
On stability, Google claims Chrome 64-bit experiences crashes about half as often as their 32-bit version of Chrome. This is great, considering Chrome already has a low crash rate.
Finally, an upgrade in security takes utilization of a feature in Windows 8 that seemingly makes it more difficult for hackers and attackers to find and target the processes running on your computer.
In addition, Google Chrome 64-bit comes with desktop shortcuts that allow you to access your favorite websites, bookmarks, and apps straight from your desktop.
Because Google worked with Adobe to improve Adobe Flash, there are a variety of protections set up against an array of attacks, which end up being more effective on 64-bit versions of Google Chrome.
If you are not running Google Chrome 64-bit, then you should be. The only reason you do not have to run the 64-bit version is that your computer is not able to run it. If you want a faster, more stable and more secure connection, then upgrading to Google Chrome 64-bit is the best choice. Even computers built in at least the last five years should be able to run Chrome 64-bit; however, there is no automatic update for this upgrade, you have to go in and download it yourself.
Most users will not even notice the difference when running the 32-bit or 64-bit versions, but tests have shown there are only slight differences between the two versions. However, because of the added stability features it is worth your while to upgrade to the 64-bit version just for the added security, if nothing else.
Cloud Storage can be a very convenient way you can store your data (photos, videos, music etc.) remotely using platforms like iCloud and Google Drive. You can then access your data stored in the cloud via the internet using any of your devices (computers, mobile devices etc.).
As the demand for more and higher quality media increases, so too does the requirement for more space to store such media. Since the hardware (e.g. a hard drive in an iPhone) cannot keep up with this demand, people turn to Cloud Storage to store their data - this keeps space free on their mobile device.
Google Drive is Google's answer to the people's calls for cloud storage.
Get the most out of your Drive - get rid of duplicates to save yourself time and money.
So, you've set up your Google Drive and have saved some files there. How do you download those files to your computer or to your phone?
First, ask yourself whether you want to transfer certain files from Google Drive to your computer, or whether you would prefer to always keep your computer and Google Drive in sync.
The first option will do for those who only want certain files from their Google Drive, or who only rarely need Google Drive files on their computer.
For those who always want access to their Google Drive files from their computer, I would recommend using Google's 'Backup & Sync' app. Any files added, removed or edited on Google Drive will be reflected automatically on your computer, so you can keep all your up to date files in both locations at once.
Let's see how to download from Google Drive to PC:
Now let's see how to sync files from Google Drive to PC. The Backup & Sync setup wizard will take you through this process, but I've noted the steps below for you as well:
Depending on how many files you have chosen to sync, the download may take some time. However, when the download is complete, you will be able to access your Google Drive files on your computer.
To do this, open File Explorer on your computer, then click 'Google Drive' from the left-hand column.
Downloading files from your Google Drive to your iPhone is easy, but first, you'll need the Google Drive app on your iPhone.
If you've not already got the Google Drive app on your iPhone, you can download it from the App Store.

How to download photos and videos from Google Drive to iPhone:
So, we've seen how to download files and photos from Google Drive to your computer and to your iPhone.
However, you may find that in the process of transferring files from place to place or saving files from different devices; that you will accumulate duplicates of some of your files.
Not only are duplicate files annoying and messy, but they take up valuable space in your Google Drive. Since you only get 15GB free space with Google Drive, duplicates can eat away at this allowance and may eventually cause you to consider upgrading to gain more space even though you may not need to.
There's a simple remedy for this issue - Duplicate Sweeper.
Duplicate Sweeper is a handy tool for your Windows PC or Mac which scans your folders and deletes duplicate files based on your preferences. It can save you hours or even days of looking through folders and files to discover if files are duplicated and considering which ones to move.
Duplicate Sweeper can quickly scan multiple folder or drives to return your duplicates. Simply select whether to keep the newest or the oldest of each duplicate to remove them automatically, or manually select which to remove.
