Google Drive Tips: Organize files under multiple folders in Google Drive
Are you wondering what happened to the option to organize files under multiple folders or collections? It is still there but not as obvious as it was before.
|I was excited when I got a free upgrade from Google Docs to Google Drive recently. It comes with 5GB free storage and I love free stuff!
How to organize files under multiple folders in Google Drive?
One of my favorite feature in Google Docs was the ability to add files to multiple collections (labels). All you had to do was, select a file, click on “Organize” and click the check boxes to add the file to multiple collections.
See the screenshot from Google Docs:
Isn’t it cool to have a file available under multiple folders?
Is the option to organize files under multiple collections missing in Google Drive?
Ability to organize files under multiple collections is still available in Google Drive, but is not very obvious as it was in Google Docs. The check boxes are no longer available, instead, you have to hold your control key while selecting folders in Google Drive.
This morning I was trying to cleanup my Google Docs Google Drive and was trying to organize files under proper folders. I was quite disappointed to see the option to click on check boxes and organize files under multiple folders are missing in Google Drive, which was one of my favorite features in Google Docs. After some trial and error, I figured out how to choose multiple folders for selected files.
To organize files under multiple folders in Google Drive, you just need to hold your CTRL key and select folders.
Follow the steps below to organize files under multiple folders in Google Drive:
2. Click on “Organize” button on the top toolbar. (This is the icon that look like a ‘Folder’). This will open a popup dialog.
3. In the Organize popup, press the Control Key and select the folders in which you want to move the file to. Even though the checkbox is missing, you can still select any number of folders by pressing the CTRL key. You will see a ‘tick mark’ for each of the selected folders.
It looks less user friendly compared to the same option Google Docs. It was much easier to select the checkboxes than pressing the control key while selecting multiple folders. I think Google should go back to the way we were organizing files under multiple collections in Google Docs. Or, atleast, provide a message in the “organize” dialog suggesting how to select multiple folders.
