Adding Folder to Google Drive

Overwhelmed with all the files in Shared With Me? Annoyed that you can't organize it without moving files away from the original owner?


Stop going to Shared With Me!


Option 1: Click on the file you want to keep in your file.


Option 2: (My favorite)

  • Click on the file you want to organize.
  • Push Shift Z
  • The dialog box comes up with "Add To:
  • Find the folder you want to put it in.
  • Double click that folder.
  • Click Add.

This method allows you to organize the files while not moving them from the original location OR making a copy that is no longer shared with people and can't be updated.
