Best Drive Shortcut EVER!! ... a great tip from our very own @MrsCoady
A quick way to add a file to multiple folders is to use the Shift+Z (not Cntrl+Z, which is undo). This will open a screen saying "Add to" rather than "Move to," so you can keep the file where it is and add it to another folder. I use this all the time and decided to share.
You can also hold down the Cntrl key when click on a folder while the "Move to" window is open, and this will allow you to add to a folder rather than actually move.
