Drive: Add a File Shortcut

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:

  1. Go to drive.google.com.
  2. 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).
  3. Right click or two-finger click the file (also called the secondary click) to view properties. Select Add Shortcut to Drive.
