As you add more and more spreadsheets to Drive, you'll undoubtedly want to start organizing them in some way. The typical way you do this is to move the Sheets files around in Drive itself, but you can also do the organizing directly within Sheets. Here's how:

  1. Open the spreadsheet you want to work on.
  2. Make any changes in the spreadsheet desired. (As you make changes, Sheets saves them automatically.)
  3. Choose File | Move to Folder. Sheets displays a dialog box showing your Drive folder hierarchy. (See Figure 1.)
  4. Figure 1. The Move To dialog box.

  5. Use the controls in the dialog box to select the folder into which you want to move the spreadsheet.
  6. Click Move.

If you think about it, it is pretty handy that you can actually move the spreadsheet on which you are working at the current time.
