Pin Files To Top In SharePoint Online Document Library

In this article, I would like to share the steps to pin files to the top in a SharePoint online Document library.

  • It is one of the features in SharePoint Online modern libraries, every document library has multiple documents and using this feature we can pin the important documents.
  • We do not need to scroll down to a document library to find the important documents.
  • This feature is not available in classic experience. We can highlight the important files and folders by pinning them

Here are the steps to be followed for pinning files to the top,

Step 1

Open the SharePoint site.

Step 2

Go to the SharePoint site contents and open the document library.


Step 3

Then select the important document which you want to pin to the top.


Step 4

After selecting the document click on the “Pin to top” option




Your document will be available with the preview of the document library, you can use the same procedure for all the documents.


Step 5

Once you pin more than one document you can move the document to right to left. Select any document which you want pinned,


Step 6

Then select the Edit pin from the library command bar to move left or right. 


Here, I moved the center document to the right side.



In this article, we have explored how to pin files to the top, left or right in SharePoint Online modern library. Happy Learning.
