Little Known Fact...Multiple GDrive Folders

multiplefolders

Working with Google Drive is a learning experience every day.  I just learned of something that I don't think may people are aware of.  You can actually place an individual file in multiple folders. The function is similar to creating a shortcut of a file in a Windows environment.  This action DOES NOT create a duplicate of the file.  It is simply one file in many different folders within your own Drive account.

  1. Select the file by clicking the box to the left of the file name

  2. Select the "Move to" function from the top toolbar

  3. Hold the CTRL key as you select the multiple folders in which you'd like to place the file

  4. Click "Move"
