Google Drive makes it easier to find file locations on the web

Following its big keyboard shortcuts update, which looks to be rolling out widely this week, Google Drive on the web is better coating file locations.

The list view when you’re in Search, Recent, Favorites, and Trash gets a new “Location” column that expands to show the full path of a file. At other times it will say “Shared with x”.

This feature makes it easier for you to differentiate between files with the same name stored in different locations and find exactly what you’re looking for at a much faster rate.

The location attaches the file name, owner, last modified, and size, while this upcoming update is an alternative to right-clicking a document to “Show File Location.” Using this existing shortcut takes you out of search/navigation to the folder where it resides, as shown at the top of your screen.

The usability tweak, which matches features provided by many native file explorers, starts rolling out today with a full launch in the coming weeks.

Available to all Google Workspace customers, plus legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers
