Q: "How do I put a Google Drive file (a Doc/Sheet/Presentation, or any old file) in multiple folders?"

A: Shift+Z!

I don't know why the Google Drive people hid this very necessary function in such an obscure corner, but there it is. 

Once you press Shift+Z and select another folder for the file to live in, that single file will be accessible from multiple folders.

How can you know where a file is shared? Details pane!

Props to Digital Inspiration for the tip!
