One of the disappointing features of Google Drive is having to run through everything in order to find what you are looking for! Well it seems that the developers at Google already know this, because they have started to roll out a new feature that will allow the Google Drive user to preview files without opening them, this is going to be a massive time saver and will make using Google Drive so much easier.
According to Ian Kilpatrick, Google Drive Engineer he said on the Google Drive Blogspot that;
It may sound obvious, but sometimes the best way to find something is to start looking. Beginning today, Google Drive will let you quickly preview more than 30 file types and quickly flip between files until you find the one you want. You’ll see the new preview automatically if you open a photo, video, or PDF. To see a preview of a Google document, right-click on the file name and select “preview.”
