G+ Questions - Desktop  - 
 
I usually access my Google Drive documents using the Recent view, but now that Google+ photos is integrated with Drive, it is totally cluttered with photos, making it very difficult to find the documents I want to work on.

Is there a way to

OR
2. Unlink Google+ photos and drive

Thanks!

go to your Google+ settings from the left hand side drop down menu. About 2/3 of the way down, there's a check box to "Show Drive photos and videos in your photo library" Just uncheck it and you're good to go!

"Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed."

Post on informational cascades across levels of networks.
I recently read Hallucinations by Oliver Sacks. It's a fascinating book; one of my main takeaways is that the structure of our brains makes a lot of different types of malfunctions possible (in this case, hallucinations). Bra...
