It’s Better late than never
Google has announced that it has added keyboard shortcuts for cutting, copying and pasting files to its Drive cloud service.
Now “Ctrl + C” and “Ctrl + V” will work through the Chrome browser. Yes, hotkeys didn’t work there before.
Google’s post says that starting June 4, all users will be able to use the standard Control/Command + C, X, and V to copy and move files just like any other file manager.
Interestingly, this option will work with different tabs. That is, it will be possible to copy the file via “Ctrl + C” and then paste it into Google Doc or Mail, for example: the file name and a link to it will appear there.
