We know how important it is to stay organized at work, so we’re making it easier to move and arrange your files and folders in Google Drive. When looking at Search results or items in the Shared with me, Recent, or Starred views in Drive, you’ll now see one of two options in the toolbar at the top of the screen. If the item you’ve selected is not already located in My Drive, you’ll continue to see the option to Add to My Drive. Clicking on that option will add the item to My Drive and then allow you to move it to various folders.
Alternatively, if the item you’ve selected is already in My Drive, you’ll now see an option to Move to, which will make it easy to move that item to a new or different folder via a simpler, clearer workflow.
As an added bonus, you will also be able to drag and drop items from your search results to your folders. In addition, to these improvements, we are making it simpler to organize Drive files when you are previewing them. For example, if you are previewing a document that is not already in My Drive, you will now see an option to Add to My Drive in the toolbar at the top of the screen. If you add that item to My Drive, you will now be able to quickly and easily move that file to different folders directly from the preview screen.
