I got a few notifications on my phone. Examples:

  1. Someone commented on a doc and tagged me.
  2. Another shared a file with me.

I'd like to see these notification on my desktop.

Where do I see the list of notifications in drive.google.com?

A direct link would be most appreciated.

  • See Get Google Drive notifications.

  • Hi Rubén, the link explains how to get to the notifications settings - not the list of notifications. Oct 6, 2021 at 17:07
  • Google usually doesn't include mentions of features that doesn't exists :)

  • Anyway, first you have to turn notifications on, then use features of your web browser + your operative system to collect the notifications some way. Another option is to connect a tool / bot i.e. a Google chat bot, Slack, etc.

Get Google Drive notifications

  • Turn on Notifications

On Windows browser notifications are managed in the action center Access Action Center

Currently you can not access previous notifications as they are managed by the device not the app however the app does maintain a log of file edits so if you are after the date and time a comment was made or file shard with you you can go to the edit history of a specific document by clicking the last edit and reviewing previous versions

Previous Versions

Or by accessing the activity dashboard to review shared documents
