Google announced a handful of new organizational features. The company bills them as "improvements that will help you more easily put things where they belong."

First off is a new "move" icon for files already in Drive when you're browsing files. There's an "Add to My Drive" option for everything else.

When you preview files, you'll now see an icon that lets you add the file to any folder in "My Drive".

Finally, you can now drag and drop files into folders from search results.

That's pretty much it. Nothing earth-shattering, but some helpful tweaks nonetheless.

Last month, Google announced its commitment of $1 million to fund more grants and independent security research to help make sure it can keep your files safe. It also added some new search features to Google Drive.
