Hello,


I don't really know the correct use of " handed".

I handed the file to my supervisor.

I mean that I gave it to her by hand.

Can I say that I handed my file?

Thank you.

    No. You have to hand something to someone. There are other related verbs like 'hand in' and 'hand out' that don't require an indirect object, but 'hand' does.
