How do I get files shared with people to show up in their Desktop Google Drive?

If this is a one-off situation, I think the quickest option would be to add a shortcut to the file in the user's My Drive. (Right click the file, choose "Add Shortcut to Drive").

If there is an ongoing need for multiple users to have access to the same files from Desktop, or if people need to see the contents of shared folders from their Desktop, then Shared Drives might be a good idea.

Items in Shared with me do not show up in Google Drive for Desktop. You must add a shortcut to My Drive as indicated above.
