How to Add a File to My Google Drive

< 1 minute read

Google Drive Green

The Shared with Me folder in Google Drive allows you to view any file or folder that a collaborator has shared with you.

This is a great way to keep track of Docs and projects that you may be working on as a team, but there is one issue. If the item is only shared with you, it won’t automatically sync to your desktop for easy offline access.

To move something from the Shared with Me folder to the My Drive folder, you will need to add it to your Drive:

1. Click Shared with me.
2. Select files or folders.
3. Click the Add to My Drive button. The selected files will automatically sync to the Google Drive folder on your computer.
