Google Drive on the web is now an better surfacing file location after its significant keyboard shortcuts change, which appears to be broadly rolling out this week.
A new Location column is being added to the list view when you are in Search, Recent, Starred, and Trash. This column expands to provide the complete path of a file. It will occasionally say Shared with x.
You can more easily distinguish between files with the same name stored in several locations thanks to this function, which also helps you find what you’re seeking for much more quickly.
As an alternative to right-clicking a document to select Show file location, location combines file name, owner, latest edited, and size. When you use the built-in shortcut, you exit search/browsing and go to the folder where it is located, which is indicated at the top of your screen.
The usability improvement, which matches many native file explorers’ functionality, begins rolling out today and will be fully launched in the upcoming weeks.
All Google Workspace users can access it, as well as previous G Suite Basic and Business users.
