I am trying to clear out google files that I do not need. They are documents my children needed for school during the COVID shutdown. I was able to remove several of them however there are some that I can not remove from my drive. It does not allow me to select remove on the drop-down menu for that particular file. What should I do to remove them from my file?
Google Docs documents that have been shared with you aren't actually in your Drive unless you move them there. If the Remove option is grayed out, it means you haven't moved them into Drive and they are only in the "Shared with me" folder.
In other words, another user has the document in their Google Drive and you are simply sharing that file. The file is not yours to delete.
