I will post one way to do this. But I'm still very much interested in a more convenient way to do it. (Like a one-click thing, especially one that's easier to do from a phone.) Copy the URL of the video. Paste that URL into this website. Right click on the Download button and select Copy Link Address. Go to this website and sign in to your Google account. ...

There's nothing built in to Google Drive for working with ZIP files. You would need to use a Google Drive add-on. I'm sure there are several. Of course, if you sync to your PC with the Google Drive sync tool, unless you've excluded that folder, the ZIP file is already on your hard drive.

There is no easy way to do this. You will need to do the following with each file. Share the file from your old account to your new account. From your old account, make new account the Owner of each file. This preserves the shares, but won't work for any file you don't own. Additionally if either of these are Google Apps accounts, your IT may have ...

Here is an Apps Script that searches all of current user's spreadsheets. If you have a lot of spreadsheets, it might time out of hit some execution quota, in which case it may be better to restrict it to a folder: replace DriveApp.getFilesByType with DriveApp.getFolderById('folder id here').getFilesByType The value to search is entered on var value = ...

It can't be done using the Google Drive search feature but it can be scripted using the Google Sheets API. First you need to retrieve the list of spreadsheets that you have access to. Next, you loop over those worksheet IDs and perform a search within the rows, looking for the "$1000" value or anything else you want to find. If there is a matching row then ...

Well, it seems Google Documents has been updated since I wrote my first answer. There's now a button that allows you to enter read-only mode: At least this button is available in some Google Accounts. Probably a feature that is being rolled out gradually.

Is there a way to track the indexing status? To know if a file is indexed look at the contentHints.indexableText property by using the get method from Google Drive REST API. Is there a way to force a specific folder on Drive to be indexed with priority? AFAIK Google Drive doesn't include any way for end users to force a specific folder to be indexed ...

The ownership of files only could be transferred for Google own file formats. The ownership of files on other formats like images, videos, PDF, etc. can't be transferred. The alternative is that another user make a copy of those files and share them with the other users. If your files are on Google file formats, first you have to share those files with an ...

It's never happened to me, but I remember my mom sent me pictures in a Word file. Weird I know. But I was able to get those images out of the "wrapper". Maybe if you think of it as a wrapper? Maybe you can download it from your own drive and save-as another format? I'm just trouble shooting aloud. But maybe that can help you figure it out. Wrapper: ...

Especially when a team uses a Google Docs doc mostly for reference, accidental edits will happen. They'll get tangled in the edit history with intentional edits, making them hard to tease out. Not exactly what you were asking for: In this situation, it's sensible to switch from Google Docs to Google Sites. Sites is handy for managing a private website of ...

If you use Chrome, the Copy Comments Chrome extensions purports to do this for you. It's not perfect, however. In the usage notes, it says: Due to the limits of the Google API there is a loss of information in copying over comments.

It has been indicated on the Google Product Forum that if you were to put leading 0's as placeholders it will sort properly. So in @Gavin Hudson's example if you created files with names starting: 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11 It would sort properly.

The best solution I reached so far is to use https://drive.google.com/open?id=' + file.id. This will open a file open window, where, if app open fails, as it is in mine case, you can rename the file or open the details. The details window allows you to locate the file in the google drive. I just wonder if it is possible to do directly, without open action, ...
