Google Adds New Shortcuts – Just for Google Drive!
FINALLY, Google Drive has added keyboard shortcuts for INSIDE Drive!! I can’t believe it took them so long, but we now have the ability to move a file from one place to another with a shortcut. In the old days, we used to have to:Now we can Control + C or Control + X, and then Control + V in the place we want the file. What a really efficient and easy way for us to get files from one place in Google Drive to another.
My mind has always been blown that Google Drive didn’t have this. I mean, they’ve been around for over 11 years, and the fact that they didn’t have those keyboard shortcuts for moving files around was kind of crazy.
The update has also made it possible to add the link into a doc directly from Drive. When we first began using Drive, there were quite a few necessary steps to accomplish this move.
Now it’s possible to add a link to a file into a Google Doc or Slides by simply clicking on a Drive file and pressing Control + C, then pressing Control + V in the spot where you want the link!
One More NEW Shortcut!
Control + Shift + V will create a shortcut to a file that you’d like to have in multiple places. For example, maybe you’d like to use the same file in both your math and science classes for a joint project. Use Control + C to copy the file from the math folder, jump over to the science folder, and Control + Shift + V, and you’ve got the same file in both places. Times savers are awesome, especially when they allow us to be more productive.
