I just signed up for Google G Suite and created a company shared folder as instructed by the G Suite Learning Center. However for some reason I cannot share the folders with anyone as shown here:

menu with share button disabled

I'm 100% sure I got full share and access rights (after all I created those folders). Any ideas?

As the screenshot shows a background we could say that the folders are included in a "Shared Drive" (formerly "Team Drive"), also the link include in the question refers to a learning article about Team Drives.

Unfortunately, at this time it's not possible to share folders included in a Shared Drive but you could add the users you want to share the folder to the Shared Drive
