Step 3 – Locate and Add to Drive

Locate the document(s) or folder(s) you want to add to your Drive and click on it once.  Then, look for the Google Drive symbol in the toolbar to “Add to my drive”.  Once the document or folder is added to your Drive, you will be able to see it mixed in with the rest of the files you have in Google Drive.  It will also sync to your computer if you have Google Drive for Desktop installed.
