Google Drive is a great productivity tool and storage solution. But over time, it can
become difficult to keep everything organized.
If you are looking for ways to organize your Drive account, you are in the right place. We
have included some tips that you will find helpful.
1. Arrange the files by date and other parameters
This is probably the easiest way to keep your files organized. All you have to do is
arrange them by date and other factors.
You will find the file sorting feature in the upper-right corner of the current file view.
You can choose from the available sorting methods as per your preference. It doesn’t
matter if you have ten files or hundreds of them, this is the best method to sort them
2. Use advanced search tools
When searching for a file in Drive, we tend to type the file name in the search bar. But
other search tools make the process easier. For instance, you can specify the file type
such as spreadsheets or PDFs.
You can be even be more specific by entering a search term alongside the file type. At the
bottom of the file type, you will find the option “more search tools.” It will help you to
narrow down the search by criteria such as owner, date modified, and others.
3. Color code your folders
Many users prefer assigning a specific color to their folders. This makes it much easier
to locate a file. All you have to do is right-click on the folder in Drive, and tap the
“Change Colour” option. This can be done to all your folders so that it’s easier to find
them at the time of need.
4. Try a numbering system
Numbering your folders and files allows you to keep the most important ones on top. It
doesn’t matter what the name of the file is, the files will be arranged in numerical order.
These are some of the best tips to organize your Drive account. Arrange your files in
order, so it’s easier to locate them even when you are in a hurry.
