Folders in Google Drive

Frequently, classes will ask you to collate a series of documents together into a folder and upload them all together to your Google Drive for submission or sharing. Instructions are available on how to upload a folder into your Google Drive account. Once you have your folder, you'll need to share it.

  1. Locate your folder in your Drive and open the settings menu by clicking the three dots on the folder's icon.
  1.  From the menu that appears, move your mouse over Share, and then choose Share from the submenu.


  1. Set your sharing settings for the folder accordingly. The settings are identical to sharing a regular document.
