Saving Files in Multiple Locations in Google Drive

Trying to locate a file in Google Drive can be frustrating if the location of the file is under several subfolders.  Moving the file to a more accessible location would make finding it easier but maybe you would like it to also remain in its current location (maybe it is in a shared folder and you do not want it to loose it's shared properties).  Well I just found this out.

You can move a file in Google Drive so it appears in multiple locations.  When you select "Move to" hold down Control ( on Macs) and click the second (or third or fourth) location you would like for the file to appear.
When you edit the file in one location it it also edited in all of the locations of the file.
