How to Quickly Verify Whether Your Google Docs are Marked Public or Private


I found this little trick in Google Drive by accident. If you are using Google Drive, sometimes it is a bit difficult to tell whether the files are public or private. You don’t want to make a mistake of sharing the files private files (financial files, for example).

To check only those files set to public or private, see the steps below.

  1. Open Google Drive in your browser. Click on the drop arrow in the search box at the top.
  2. You can either choose the “Public on the web” option to view those files marked public. If you choose the “Private” option, you will see a list of files you had marked private.

This tip will help you tidy up your list of documents in Google Drive.
