What is a .GJAM file?

A .GJAM file is a special kind of file that acts like a shortcut or a quick link to open a whiteboard drawing. These drawings are made using a tool called Google Jamboard, which is like a digital whiteboard where you can draw, write, and add images. After you create a drawing on Google Jamboard, it gets saved in Google Drive, which is a place on the internet where you can store your files and access them from anywhere.

The .GJAM file doesn't contain the drawing itself. Instead, it has information that points to where the drawing is stored in Google Drive. It also keeps track of which Gmail account was used to make the drawing. This is helpful because it makes it easy to find and open your Jamboard drawings directly from your computer without having to go through Google Drive in your web browser.

These .GJAM files are made by an app called Google Drive for Desktop. This app lets you access your Google Drive files directly from your computer's desktop, making it more convenient to manage your files.

To open a .GJAM file, you can use several different programs: - Any text editor: You can open a .GJAM file with a text editor like Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on Mac. This won't open the drawing itself but will let you see the information contained in the .GJAM file, such as the link to the drawing and the Gmail account information. - Google Drive for Desktop: This is the program that creates .GJAM files, and it can also open them. When you open a .GJAM file with Google Drive for Desktop, it will take you directly to the Jamboard drawing in Google Drive. - Chrome OS: If you're using a Chromebook or another device running Chrome OS, you can open .GJAM files directly because Chrome OS is designed to work seamlessly with Google Drive and its associated apps, including Jamboard.

In summary, a .GJAM file is a convenient shortcut for accessing your Google Jamboard drawings stored in Google Drive, and you can open it using a text editor, Google Drive for Desktop, or directly on a Chrome OS device.
