On the web application for desktop this is accomplished by navigating to the file, clicking on it, and pressing Shift + Z.

Is there a way to accomplish the same functionality on Android? Either within the Google Drive app or thru some other means?

NOTE: When I go to a file that's in multiple locations on the Google Drive app and go to: Options -> Details, then I can see all the locations the file is in, and also remove locations, but I can't seem to add locations from this menu.

Using Google Drive version 2.20.141.03.34:

  1. Select the file(s)
  2. Click on the 3-dot menu, then select "Add shortcut to Drive"
  3. Select the location where the shortcut(s) should be created.

You can select the file and add to star in google drive, next time when you want to see you can directly click on starred files of folders.

  • Hi Mansi, this doesn't answer my question. If you read the question it says "(see body of question)". If you then read the body of the question I feel like it pretty clearly states that I'm trying to accomplish the same functionality as the shift + z shortcut on the google drive web app. Which allows me to create a short cut to a file or folder in any folder. Using the star feature doesn't accomplish that.
