Why Star a Folder or File???

An overlooked tool I find most useful in Google Drive is the Star Section. Place a Star on a file or folder to isolate it in the starred section. I find starring handy for doing a presentation or research. It allows a teacher or presenter to hide confidential files from their audience. Starring a folder provides easy access to research project information. Using a simple tool such as starring a file or folder can be a big timesaver.

How to Star a Folder or File

  • Open Google Drive
  • Click Folder or File
  • Click “More Setting” tool (3 vertical dots)
  • Select “Add to Starred”
