In this video, you will organize your files by adding them to your folders.

Organizing files, such as documents and spreadsheets, into your folders can help you access them more efficiently. By reviewing your files, you can figure out how to add them to the folders you created, so each file is in a specific place where you can find it when you need it. To begin, search for each starter project that you added to your Drive.

You can also look in your recent files for them.

Then, one at a time, rename each file, And move it into the folder where the file best fits.

If you are unsure of what the file contains, open it and then decide in which folder it belongs.

You may have files in your Drive that need more details in their names.

When you name a file, you want to make sure you know by the title what the file contains. Adding a date or information that makes it unique from similar files can help you better organize your Drive.

Continue moving your files to the appropriate folders, renaming each one. If you have a file that you no longer need, you can move it to the trash.

If you change your mind and want to place it back in your Drive, you can find it in the trash until you empty your trash.

Next, open each folder to make sure your files have been moved correctly.

If you have several files in a folder, create new subfolders to further organize them. For example, if you have a folder for a job search, you can create a subfolder for a specific job you are interested in.

Then, place the files in their corresponding folders.

If you have your own files saved elsewhere on your computer, such as PDF files or photos, you can upload and add those to your drive folders as well.

Now, it’s your turn: Rename your files, Move them to your folders, Delete files you no longer need, Create subfolders, And upload files from your computer to your Drive.
