Have you wondered what the “Shared with me” item is in Google Drive? This is a repository of all folders and files that have been shared with you by others, as well as files shared with a link that you have opened.
Files in Shared with me are organized with the most recent one first. You can see the following information for each file:
- When the file was shared with you.
- The owner of the file.
- The document type.
You aren’t able to organize your files in Shared with Me, so if you want to put files into folders and move them around, you need to add files to your Drive instead. To add a file, right-click on it, and then choose “Add to My Drive”
