How to share files using Google Drive

  1. First open a browser and in the url or search field type in: google.com/drive.
  2. Click the ‘Go to Google Drive’ button.
  3. Log in if you’re not already logged in.
  4. Click the ‘My Drive’ button and select ‘New Folder’. In this example I’ll name the folder ‘testfolder’.
    google_drive_button
  5. You can now drag files from your computer or Google Drive to the folder in your Google Drive.
    google_drive_drag
  6. Now right-mouse-click on the folder, select ‘Share’ and enter in the Gmail email address of the person you want to share the folder with.
    google_drive_share
  7. Click the ‘Done’ button.

The person you shared the folder with will get an email and be able to access the files in your Google Drive folder.
