How to Star a File on Google Docs

​You can star a file on Google Docs, and it is a simple task. Let's see how to do this task on PC and Android.

PC

​Sign into Google Docs.​​​

​To Star: Open the document you wish to star and then click on the "Star"​​​ icon at the top.

The document is starred

To Unstar: Open the document you wish to unstar and then click on the "Star" icon at the top.​

​Android

  • angle-right
    Open Google Docs app.
  • angle-right
    ​Now, long press the file that you want to star.
  • angle-right
    ​Find and tap the “Star” option.

That's all. The document is starred now.

The file is starred

Tap on Hamburger icon (three vertical lines) > Starred to view all the starred files.

To unstar a starred file, do these steps:

  • angle-double-right
    ​Tap on Hamburger icon (three vertical lines) > Starred.
  • angle-double-right
    ​Long press the file that you want to unstar.
  • angle-double-right
    ​Find and tap the “Star” option.

That's it. The document is unstarred now.

Alternatively, you can do the above tasks using Google Drive web version​ and Google Drive for Android which I've talked in this guide. Keep in mind that the star and unstar you've made to a Google Docs file on Google Drive will reflect in Google Docs and vice versa.
