First things first! Lets make sure we have the most recent version of Google Earth installed on our computer. Launch Google Earth from your program file. Once Google Earth is open, go to the “Help” tab and select the “About Google Earth” option at the bottom of the list. When this opens, a new window will appear with version information. It should look something like this:
The first line will give the version you are running. Version 5.xx is now the newest version. If you are unsure, go back to the “Help” tab in Google Earth, and select the “Check for Updates Online” option. This will automatically check to see if you have the most recent version of Google Earth.
Now we are ready!
