Improved Listing of Recent Files in Drive

Google has overhauled the Recent view for files in Drive on the web.

The previous options Last modified, Last modified by me and Last opened by me have now disappeared, replaced by a dynamically-generated list based on how you’ve interacted with drive.

The list is still separated into time-related sections such as Today, Earlier this week, Earlier this month, etc.

The type of action, and the protagonist, are now listed alongside each file in the list. The revised sorting helps ensure that items acted upon by the user are more prominently visible than items acted upon by others.
