Google Drive external tool not following shortcuts

Community Participant

When adding a file through the external tool for Google Drive, the browser always starts at the top of my Google Drive, and I have to navigate several levels down.

Is there a solution to remember the place I most recently visited, because when working in a course i will add multiple files from the same directory?

Not finding such a solution I made a shortcut (symbolic link) from a folder I  frequently visited to the top level of my drive. ;

The canvas integration does not understand these shortcut, and appear as files.

(I can make this work using hard links (SHIFT Z), but I have found these to be rather dangerous.)

Is there a solution for following these shortcuts when adding Google Drive files in canvas?
