Organization can help relieve stress. One great way to organize in Google Drive is to create and utilize folders. Here are the basics . . .
- Folders can be created by selecting New > New Folder
- Folders can also be created in some locations by right-clicking & selecting New Folder
- Folders can be nested (folders inside of folders)

- Use the Move To button in the right-click options
- Hold down shift to highlight more than 1 file and then move them together
