Familiar keyboard shortcuts, such as copy, paste, and cut, are now available in Google Drive on the web. Users had to accomplish everything manually up until now by right-clicking on a file and then picking the relevant action from the context menu. However, this is beginning to change.

Google recently announced that users may now copy, paste, and trim files in Google Drive using the Ctrl + C (or + C on Mac), Ctrl + X, and Ctrl + V keyboard shortcuts. These shortcuts make it easy to move multiple files across tabs in Drive.

“You may now copy, cut, and paste Google Drive files in your Chrome browser using the keyboard keys Ctrl + C (or + C on Mac), Ctrl + X, and Ctrl + V.” This saves you time by allowing you to copy one or more files and move them across several tabs in Drive with fewer clicks,” according to Google’s official statement.

When you copy a file, Google states that a link to the file and its title will be copied, making it easier to paste into an email.

You can also use Ctrl + C, Ctrl + Shift + V to build a shortcut to avoid creating duplicate files. Ctrl + Enter will launch a new tab with a file or folder. You may examine multiple files at once and organize files between two folders more quickly. Use instead of Ctrl if you’re using a Mac.

All Google Workspace users and personal Google accounts now have access to the new keyboard shortcuts in Google Drive. For the time being, Google Chrome is the only browser supported, but we hope that this will change in the future. Visit to try them out.

Google Drive received Gmail-like search chips in February, making it quicker to identify relevant files without performing several searches.
