Google Drive FAQ - Change Sharing Access

How to update sharing access of specific people or groups in Google Drive

After you’ve shared a file with others, you can change the type of access specific people or groups can have.

    1. Open the file.
    2. Click Share in the top-right corner.
    3. Click Advanced in the bottom-right corner of the sharing box.
    4. Using the drop-down menu next to the user’s name, select the type of access you want them to have.
    5. Click Done.

Remove sharing privileges

If you are the owner of a file or folder, you can choose to remove editors’ ability to share files with others in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides. This allows you to control everyone who is able to view or edit the file or folder.
