How to stop Chromebook from automatically uploading files to Drive cloud storage?

How can I convince my Chromebook that I don’t want every single file I have stored on the device automatically uploaded to Drive?
Looks like you already have an answer, but here's a link to the Chromebook support site in case you need it later:

If you don't use Google Drive to store your files on the web, you can hide its section in the Files app.

1. Click the status area in the lower-right corner, where your account picture appears.
2. Select Settings.
3. Click the Show advanced settings link.
4. Find the "Downloads" section and select the "Disable Google Drive on this device" checkbox.
