Problem 58503. Google Drive file download

This Challenge is to download a file from GoogleDrive given its "copylink" provided URL and a file name.
GoogleDrive links fail for Matlab function like urlwrite, imread, imwrite, webread, and others.
The file 2.png is given by https://drive.google.com/file/d/1v3GsGgP3p905wzdvUqypL_-djYmxiyzK/view?usp=drive_link, which will bring up the file in a new window but this URL fails for matlab commands.
The GoogleDrive file must be "Shared" . The file must at least have share to those "anyone with this link".
To enable file download the Google URL string must be modified:
1) Delete the end '/view?usp=*'; Anything after and inlcuding "/view" must be deleted
2) Replace 'file/d/' with 'uc?export=download&id='
Given a URL and filename download the URL contents into a file called filename in the local Cody directory.
Verification will be done by file name and file size.
