how to remove a google doc from home view

The ‘Activity’ view in Drive shows you everything that has been recently edited. This would include anything that you’ve created and anything that has been shared with you. Any file you don’t want to look at can be simply removed.

1. From Drive, click on the ‘More’ dropdown menu and select ‘Activity’.

2. Select the file(s) you wish to remove.

3. Click on ‘More’ and then choose ‘Don’t Show in Activity list’.

* Anything removed from the ‘Activity’ view will not be deleted, you will still be able to find it in ‘All items’.
