Add file to multiple folders

  1. Open My Drive in Google Drive.
  2. Select a file you want to appear in more than one folder.
  3. Use the keyboard shortcut Shift+Z to make the Add to... dialogue box appear.
  4. Navigate to the subsequent folder in My Drive you want to appear.
  5. Use the ADD button to add the file to the subsequent folder and it will remain in the original folder too.


  • This is only an option in My Drive as Team Drives do not allow files in multiple folders.
