Sharing is getting a bit easier on Google Drive today. Google has just announced that users on a PC or Mac can now share files simply by right clicking and choosing "share" from a Google Drive submenu. The file(s) in question will need to be in your Google Drive folder, of course. It's a small addition (we're sure power users appreciate the move), but it brings Drive's desktop app even closer in functionality to Dropbox. Google says the new quick sharing functionality will roll out to its Google Drive app for PC and Mac over the next few days, so if you're not seeing anything upon a right click of your mouse or trackpad, don't despair.

I wish you could direct link to files like Dropbox, but still a useful storage solution
