Google is finally allowing users to Cut, copy and paste files using keyboard shortcuts in Google Drive if you are using Google Chrome.
You will now be able to use keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl + C (or ⌘ + C on Mac), Ctrl + X, and Ctrl + V to copy, cut, and paste Google Drive files in Chrome. The feature will be available for everyone to use by June 4, 2022.
Google Drive shortcuts
Google, although late but has paid special attention to Drive’s functionality. The features are added to basic shortcuts and will work across different tabs. However, when you copy a file and try to paste it into an email or google doc, it inserts the file’s title with its link.
“Additionally, a link to the file and its title will also be captured when copying a file, which allows you to easily paste them into a document or an email,” said a workspace post by google. You can now use Ctrl + C, Ctrl + Shift + V to create shortcuts without necessarily creating duplicate files.
