Google Drive Quick Tips #1

I use Google Drive and Apps almost as much as I use Evernote. :) I have a large number of documents, presentations, spreadsheets, and more in my drive. One thing I really like being able to do is filter by file type. For example, let's say I want to display all of the presentations in my drive. At the top of my drive page, in the search box, I can type:

  • type:presentation

and hit search. The result is a list of all my Google Presentations that exist in my drive. You can filter other types, too:

  • type:document
  • type:spreadsheet
  • type:image
  • type:pdf
  • type:folder

So, if I wanted to see all folders in my drive that have "nursing" in their name, I would search:

type:folder nursing
