Adding a Google Doc or any other file to multiple folders within Google Drive makes it easy to find the file and helps you stay organized. If you have files that need to be in multiple folders in your Drive, it’s simple to add them.

1. From your drive, check the file(s) you wish to add to multiple folders.

2. Select the ‘Move to’ button or you can click on ‘More’ and then choose ‘Move to’.

3. To select multiple folders hold down the ‘Control’ key for Windows or the ‘Command’ key for Mac.

4. Finally click on ‘Move’.

* Adding a file to multiple folders does not create multiple copies of that file. If you make a change in the file under one folder, the change will appear in the file of the other folders.

Thank you so much! I thought Google got rid of this feature because it used to be navigated a different way. I could not for the life of me figure out how this could be done, so simple when you think about it though!
