Google Drive adds cut, copy, and paste shortcuts to speed up your file management
Google Drive has become one of the most famous cloud storage nowadays. However, it does not only store your files, but it is also a powerful tool allowing you to create, share, and manage documents among your team effectively. Previously, anyone who used this powerful tool always dreamed of having convenient shortcut keys to move, organize files or folders freely on Drive.
Recently, Google just updated new feature support for copy, paste and cut keyboard shortcuts to Google Drive on the web. This addition is intended to provide users an easier way to manage files. Instead of always manual doing things by using right-click to take appropriate action, you can now use familiar keyboard shortcuts as below;
– Ctrl + C (or ⌘ + C on Mac) to copy
– Ctrl + X (⌘ + X) to cut
– Ctrl + V (⌘ + V) to paste
For example, you can now copy or cut files from its original folder location on Google Drive by using Ctrl + C (or ⌘ + C on Mac) and Ctrl + X (⌘ + X), then paste them in a different folder in your Chrome browser by pressing Ctrl + V (⌘ + V) which is a convenient way of moving your files instead of drag-and-drop or right-click menu. In the meantime, you can copy your selected files and paste them to Google Docs, Sheets, or Gmail, and it will show the file’s title with URL link.

In addition, you can open files or folders in a new tab by pressing
– Ctrl + Enter (⌘ + Enter)
This allows you to view multiple files at once, or use different tabs to easily manage your files between different folder locations.
With this update on keyboard shortcuts, you can have effective and convenient ways to organize files and folders. It will save your time, so that you can allocate your valuable time to do other tasks or spend more time with your family.
