When a document is referenced across multiple instances in Google Drive, it can be useful to organize the same file in multiple locations within Google Drive folders.
To add a file shortcut to your Drive:
- Go to drive.google.com.
- Navigate to the location of the file that you want to create a shortcut for (this can be in your Drive or in Shared With Me).
- Right click or two-finger click the file (also called the secondary click) to view properties. Select Add Shortcut to Drive.
- Double-click or click the right arrow by the folder to select the location that you want to save the shortcut.
- Click Add Shortcut.
- The shortcut should now appear in the designated location, and it will be indicated by a folder with an arrow pointing upwards.
