How can we remove or delete files from shared folder in Google Drive as I can't see any remove/delete option there. See the screenshot below:

Here I want to remove ymusic-latest.apk from my shared folder. How do we do that?


You should have the Remove options as shown on the first image below. If not (as is your case), then long-press on the file, a menu should appear as seen on the second image. You can then click on the trash/bin to delete the file.

I used version 2.19.392.02.35 of Google Drive.


  • I tried it too, but strangely no delete option appeared.

  • @user3779493 What about other files? Does the Remove option appear for them? Have you tried to clear the app's cache? Oct 10 '19 at 18:16
  • I had only one file in shared folder. Yes I did clear app's cache and updated the app too but nothing worked for me. The desktop version of this app did the job for me.
