Google Drive on Web Now Offers Copy, Paste Keyboard Shortcuts

A feature that I always assumed was there in Google Drive, is now truly there beginning this week. I’m referring to cut/copy/paste keyboard shortcuts for web users, an addition that should save users a few seconds here and there.

Drive works in the same way as any other file. You can use Ctrl+ C, Ctrl+ V, or Ctrl+ X to open it on your desktop. You just need to highlight the file, and then use the shortcut you want. Google says that 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.


Drive users can also open folders or files in a new tab by pressing Ctrl + Enter. This allows them to quickly view multiple files and use different tabs to organize files between folders.
