Google Drive Web now lets you cut, copy, and paste files using familiar keyboard shortcuts in the Chrome Browser that you use anywhere else. These shortcuts include Ctrl + C (or ⌘ + C on Mac) to copy, Ctrl + X to cut, and Ctrl + V to paste. This update will save you a lot of time by allowing you to copy and paste multiple files to new locations in Drive, and on multiple folders with just a few clicks and keyboard shortcuts.
In addition, when copying a file, a link to the file and its title will also be generated allowing you to easily paste them into an email or a document. You can now easily organize multiple files in multiple locations without creating any duplicate files, Ctrl + C, Ctrl + Shift + V will create shortcuts.
Finally, using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Enter, you can open files or folders in a new tab, so that you can easily view multiple files at once, or use different tabs to more easily organize files between two different folders.
