Changing the folder owner

Changing the folder owner

Hello!

Can someone please walk me through how to change the owner of a folder? I "own" several folders that I'd like to transfer ownership to someone else.

Thank you in advance.

In the suggested page :

 

  1. Click the dropdown arrow next to the name of the person you want to transfer ownership to.
  2. Select Make owner to confirm your choice.

But the dropdown arrow presents only Edit or View. No option to Make owner is presented.

 

How can I change the ownership?

Do you see an option to see who has access to the folder at the top when clicking the share button?

You should see the 'Make owner' option visible there for the other user, assuming you're the current owner of the folder.
