A Google integration utility, Google Desktop is a program that enables search functionality through all of their programs and sites concurrently. As long as Google Desktop is running, a search will have the ability to search email, files, images, and anything else catalogued or stored in a Google program or web database. In 2011, Google discontinued their Desktop application suite due to the fact that cloud storage made a lot of its functionality irrelevant. Founded in 1998, the Google business model was originally built around their flagship search engine. Over the past ten years, they have introduced a variety of software and even tablets to the market.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/googledesktop.exe.html

It is the Google Desktop Manager. It only runs when Google Desktop Search needs it. It is not essential for Windows. By default, it is set to Manual (check in the Services Control Panel application), so that it can be run when Google Desktop Search needs it.  See also: Link david gunnells
