Looking for a way to count files in a Google Drive folder? Google Operating System has shared 4 ways to do this. I have copied two of them here.
Method #1: convert and download
1. right-click a folder
2. click “Download”
3. you’ll find the number of files after waiting a few seconds. Sometimes, Google doesn’t show the number of files and you should try again
4. click “Cancel”.
Method #2: move to
1. open the folder
2. repeatedly scroll down until you reach the end the folder. You can use the End key
3. select all the files using Shift+A
4. click “More” and “Move to”
5. click “Cancel”.
“Move to” doesn’t count the files from subfolders.
