    For some reason I don't understand, I keep seeing the same annoying requests pop up when looking at files/images.
    It keeps asking me to allow Google to use Drive.

    I didn't see this in the past, how can I stop it appearing?

    I don't know if your Samsung is the same, but I have a note 9. Open my files, go-to settings, click on Google drive, and sign out. Should fix it.

    If it's installed, shouldn't it be listed walphabetically?

    Sorry, just realised it's just listed as 'Drive'.
    I've disabled it. I'll see if that works.

    That's what I was trying to explain. If your Samsung phone is like mine Drive isn't installed on the phone. It's My Files app that has access to it and is why it keeps asking. If you Do what I suggested it should stop asking

    Right, thanks.
    Unfortunately I didn't read your clear instructions properly!
    I have now signed out through My Files>Settings, and so far it seems to have worked.
    Thanks for your help.
