Subtle display of file location in Drive

Subtle display of file location in Drive

Google deployed a subtle update in Drive. This ensures that in addition to the name of the document, its owner and edit date, you can now directly see the location of the file in the search view and in the components:

  • Recent
  • Starred
  • Bin

If a search brings up multiple files with the same name, it is helpful to be able to see which folder each file is in. It is clear at a glance whether the file is shared with you, is on My Drive or on a Shared Drive.

Hovering your mouse over the location reveals the full path. This provides additional guidance as to whether this is the document you are looking for.
