How to share

If you want to send a file or folder to someone so that they can view, edit, or comment on it, you can share it with them directly in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, or Slides, or through a link or email attachment.

Anyone you share the file or folder with will see changes made as they happen so that everyone can be on the same page and you can get feedback quickly.


In this video, you’ll learn how to share your files with individual people and with groups, and how to choose what others can do with a file.

Share a file or folder

You can share a file or folder in Google Drive or in the Docs, Sheets, and Slides home screens. You can also share from any of the Drive, Docs, Sheets, or Slides mobile apps.
