It looks like I asked one question on 3rd January 2023, and the question. And then, I have tried editing my question and none of my edits worked. I feel that I have to ask some Web Apps question about Google Drive. What kind of question do I ask?

Web Applications Stack Exchange is for expert and advanced users of web applications.

If your question generally covers …

Using Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Google, or any other website which behaves like an application Features of browsers which are directly related to the use of a web application (Greasemonkey scripts for a web application, etc.) … then you’re in the right place to ask your question!

Take a look at this meta question on another site. There also, I am facing a similar situation.

Tips for English as Second Language Speakers

If English is your second language, please bear in mind that you will get more chances to find the help that you need if you use the terms used in user interface in English and /or the Google help resources originaly wrote in English than translating a term from another language to English, so it might be a good idea to temporally switch your Google account to use English or use a second account for your research efforts.

The same if you have are trying to get help about an error message. Try to reproduce the problem using an account using English so the error message will shown in English.
