Update: Thanks to several of our followers on Google+ for pointing out that you can open the ‘Add to’ menu in the new Google Drive by using the keyboard shortcut Shift + Z after you’ve selected a file or folder.

One of our favorite tricks in Google Drive is the ability to add a file to multiple folders. This feature actually disappeared in the new version of Drive, but there is still an easy workaround.

To do so, you’ll need to open up the file itself and add the file to multiple folders from there. It takes a few more steps than previously needed, but at least the functionality is still there. The new version of Drive is still a work in progress, so I would expect this feature to make its way back in at some point.
