Reminder - The Google Drive Desktop App Is Being Phased Out

How to Create a Custom Google Forms Theme

A couple of years ago I published a video tutorial on how to create a custom Google Forms theme. More than 10,000 people have since used that video tutorial to customize the appearance of their Google Forms.

It is being replaced by a new tool called Backup and Sync. Depending upon your account, you may also see a notification to use Drive File Stream.
