Is there a way to save and share webpage links? For example, http://www.example.com.

How can I save that webpage link to a folder and be able to share that link with others?

  • I imagine you would need to add these links to a document and share the document? – MrWhite Dec 3 '13 at 21:07

    Does it have to be Google Docs? There are other bookmark-sharing services out there. – ale Dec 3 '13 at 21:34

It is not possible to have a "folder of links" in Drive.

What you can do is create a document and put the links in there. This document can be easily shared with others.

But, as @Krampus mentions, there are plenty of bookmark-sharing services available. Google even has its own one: Google Bookmarks. Another one I used before is Delicious. Wikipedia has a page on social bookmarking websites.

I make a new Google Doc and I paste my url on the page as a hyperlink and name it. Make sure when you use this that your mode for the Google Doc is in viewing mode.

You can save links with the free Chrome extension Save to Google Drive. You can find it at the Chrome Web Store.

If you installed the extension it will look like that:

Save to Google Drive

    That's not working the way you think it should. If you right-click a link and choose "Save to Google Drive", if it's just a simple link you'll be prompted to go to the page and use the "Save to Google Drive" button by the address bar. That context menu option is for saving documents and such. It's a useful extension, but not for this. – ale Dec 13 '13 at 21:37
  • The behavior is strange. I can successfully save some links but in Google Drive they seem messed up. – user22348 Dec 13 '13 at 21:42

An easy way that I use with Google Drive:

  1. Make one new document (text formatted file) only once.
  2. Whenever you want to save a link copy it and paste it in the respective document.

Your file is on Drive and also all the links.
