Google Drive Question

I am setting up a new laptop and want to install the Google Drive PC app on it. When I searched for the app, it took me to Backup and Sync. Downloaded, but It shows my Drive empty. When I access via browser, all of my files are there. I am looking for the Drive triangular icon that shows up as a separate directory in my windows PC directory. How to get this done?

Turns out, I think I downloaded the wrong App - Backup and Synce. I blame Google for their piss-poor web instructions for getting the Drive App. . I finally found the PC Drive App and I now see it in my windows directory as it's own drive.
