How to update a file in Modules or All my files?
Hi Heba El-Shazli , and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
Basically, you must download the file, make your changes in it's native app (Word, Excel, Google, etc.) then upload it back into Canvas. You cannot edit a file directly in Canvas. These guides should help.............
Hello! My question is I posted a file then I need to upload same file because it is updated (the syllabus for example).. so how do I that without having to delete and then upload the new/revised file? Or is that the only way?

Hi again, Heba
Unfortunately, that is the only way.
Hello Heba El-Shazli,
You can upload the file in the Files section of your course and when prompted to Change Name or Replace, choose Replace. That way it will replace the existing version of the file and all the places where the file was referenced will automatically be updated as well.
But you must upload into the same location where the file is and you must see the dialog box.

Thank you, Sharmaine , I forgot about that relatively new ability!
