Start using these lesser-known keyboard shortcuts

The standard shortcuts in Google Drive (for features like cut, paste, select all, print) all work as expected, but there are other shortcuts you’ll want to know.

Send large files to others

Many sharing services limit the size of files you can send to other users; you can get around this with Google Drive.

Make use of the revision history

As you make edits to your files, Google Drive retains a revision history. You can always examine every revision you’ve done and even revert back to an older iteration of the file.

Benefit from suggested edits

The suggested edits feature (not it’s official name) makes collaboration or even working on your own documents so much easier.  While working on a document in Google Drive, you’ll notice a drop-down near the top right corner.

Use Google Drive’s add-ons

Google Drive offers a number of really handy add-ons. The Add-ons menu is between Table and Help; click Add-ons and then select Get Add-ons. In the resulting window, you can select from helpful additions ranging from diagrams, charts, mind mapping, bibliography creators, writing aids, music notation, and so much more. After you install an add-on, it will show up in the Add-ons menu.
