You may not know it, recently Google has made a few feature changes when using its Google Drive service.

More specifically, when you right-click on a file / folder shared by someone else, you won't see the button. Add to My Drive (Add to My Drive) like before.

Instead you only have the option Thêm lối tắt vào Drive, it's like you created a shortcut on your Google Drive.

This way, you will still have quick access to files that have been shared by others, but you will not be able to sync that file with your computer.

To make it easier for you to imagine, the following is the image before and after Google changes the function:
