- Navigate to the file
- Click the ellipses (…)
- From the second dropdown, click the ellipses (…) and click Check Out
After check-out, the file icon is covered with a green, downward-pointing arrow , indicating that the file is now checked out. No one else can change the file, and no one else can see your changes, while you have it checked out.
TIP: Checking out files prevents people from editing files simultaneously and lets people add check-in comments to clarify version history when versioning is turned on for the library
