Locate your Google files in Google Drive


As an AODocs user with the AODocs Smartbar installed, you can locate Google files in the Google editor using the breadcrumb. 

When you open a file in Google Docs, Sheets or Slides, you can see the file path in the file header. You can click on any segment of the path to open the corresponding folder in Google Drive.

You can also press the Open in AODocs button to open the file in AODocs.


You can also use the native Google feature in Google files to identify the current folder. 

In your Google file, select File > Document details

  • I would like to locate Excel and Word documents in Google Drive. This procedure explains only Google Docs, Sheets and Slides location.

  • Hello Paulo,
    Indeed the smartbar only display the breadcrumb of the file for Docs, Sheets and Slides because it is the only documents who have a dedicated interface in Google Drive. Excel, word, pdf and other types of document only allow you to have a preview. We are looking into it but there are technical limitations because the preview is a sort of iframe on top of the Google Drive interface.
