Once you've successfully connected the plugin to your Google Drive account, you can start using it to embed files from Google Drive in your WordPress posts and pages. To do this, simply create a new post or page, and click on the "Add Media" button. In the Insert Media window that opens, you'll see a new tab called "Google Drive." Click on this tab to browse through the files in your Google Drive account and select the ones you want to embed.

Once you've selected the files you want to embed, click on the "Insert into post" button and the plugin will automatically embed the files into your post or page. You can also use the plugin's shortcodes to customize the way the files are displayed on your website.
