Tip #21 - The New Drive
January 22, 2015 - BEST District
Google Drive 2.0
If you have seen the messages to "Take me to the new Drive", you have probably ignored them, and moved on to something more pressing right? Now is the time to stop and go over to the new Drive - you will be glad you did.
Some of the feature updates for the new Drive are:
- There is one button to create, upload, or add files.
- You can simply drag and drop files into folders.
- Double-click feature (one-click to select, a second click to open)
How to get there?
At the top of your Drive, click the blue button that says "Take me to the new Drive".
New Features of Drive
The new button consolidates the old Create/Upload buttons.
Incoming replaces the "Shared with me" option from the old Drive.
Right-click on a file/folder
A new menu pops up when a file/folder has been right-clicked.
Drag and Drop
Find a file or folder in your Drive. Left-click and hold (to select that file). Drag this file to a new location or folder, drop this file in. That's it!
