Add a File to Multiple Folders in Google Drive
Have you ever wished you could put a single file in Google Drive in more than 1 folder? It is possible! This is not a copy of a file, but one single file located in two different folders.
To get started, locate the desired file in Google Drive. Click on the file one time to select the file.
Hold the shift button down and tap Z. This will open the prompt to “ADD TO” a folder.
Select the desired folder and click on Add. A confirmation that the file was added to the selected file will show up at the top of the screen.
In the picture below, the selected file is still in it’s current location, but it is ALSO located in the folder it was just “added to.”
Keep in mind that there is still only ONE file, so deleting it from any of it’s locations will delete it from all locations. To delete the file from a single location, click on the file one time to select it, then click on the view details icon.
Under the “Details” tab, there is a list of locations for this file. Click on the X next to the folder to remove the file from that location.
