- Drive for Desktop
Reorganize the file/folder structure. Delete the shortcuts that have been created:
- Go to Google Drive.
- Locate the file.
- Right-click and select Show file location.
- Once you have confirmed that you have the original file under the Shared with me section, delete the shortcut.
- Right click and select Add shortcut to Drive.
Since Google Drive for Desktop does not sync the files under the Shared with me section, this process will add a shortcut of these files to the My Drive section and the application will sync the shortcuts. However, the original file will only remain under the Shared with me section
