Search and sort your files and folders

 On the web:

It can be difficult to browse through hundreds of files just to find the one you need. So, try searching Drive instead.

In Drive’s search box, type a word or phrase. To help you search faster, Drive suggests search terms as you type. Click one of the suggestions to open it, or click  to see a list of results.

  1. Advanced search options: In the search box, click to see the search options. Choose any option or combination of options to filter your results further.

  2. Sorting options:

Click   to sort files in any of these ways:

  • Last modified—See items that were recently modified by anyone (not just you). This might help you keep track of things that your collaborators have recently changed.

  • Last edited by me—See the files or folder that you’ve changed.

  • Last opened by me—Find files you recently opened, regardless of whether you’ve edited them. This is a great way to get back to items you were recently viewing, if you accidentally closed a tab in your browser, or if you didn’t bookmark something.

  • Name—See your files in alphabetical order.
