How to move folders in Google Drive [Full Guide]

Perhaps you want to move a folder around because you found another use for it. Even though folders can’t be moved into Team drives yet, you can do this in Google Drive by simply following these two easy steps.

How do I move a folder in Google Drive?

1. Drag and drop

  1. Go to the official Google Drive website.
  2. Click on My Drive and Sign In if you aren’t already.
  3. While inside your Drive, click and hold on the folder you wish to move.
  4. Drag the folder to the designated location.
  5. Drop your folder there.

Note: Dragging and dropping your files is the easiest method to move them, but it is more difficult to be precise when you’re using a tablet or your laptop’s mouse pad.

2. Use the build-in options

  1. Navigate to the official Google Drive website.
  2. Click on My Drive and sign in if you are not signed in already.

  5. Navigate to the folder you want the file moved to through the pop-up window.
  6. Select it and press Move.

This is the easiest and safest way to move your folders around in your Google Drive. There is no risk of accidentally placing them in the wrong place. Thanks to the awesome Google developers, the process is easy and precise.

Moving your files around is pretty easy. Thankfully, you do not need any software, since the option is already built into Google Drive. The aforementioned steps will teach you everything you need to know.
