Adding Shared Files to Google Drive
Use the “Add Shortcut to Drive” option to link files or folders from “Shared with me” to any location within your Google Drive. This makes items easier to find when you need them. NOTE: File or folder you Add to Drive will remain listed in Shared with Me.
There is a workaround: you can use the keyboard shortcut Shift + Z and old the feature appears. You can add the shared folder to your Drive (works also in Google Sync).
Go to your Shared with me section, highlight the shared files or folders you want to move, and type Shift+Z on your keyboard. You’ll see the old move menu and can choose where to put those folders. On your PC, they’ll sync and behave like they used to, no shortcut mess.
