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? Commented Oct 10, 2019 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.
