Search for content in Google Drive folders

Google Drive’s Search now makes it possible for you to find files in specific folders in My Drive or Team Drive.

To access the new Search feature in Drive, follow these steps:

  1. Type your search term in the Search Drive bar.
  2. Click on the drop-down arrow to the right of the Search Drive bar.
  3. From the Location field, choose the appropriate Drive and select the desired folder.
  4. Click the blue Search button to view results.

If you would like to search a folder that has been shared with you, you will need to add that folder to your My Drive before searching.
