Google Drive: The same file in two folders

It is possible to have the same file in two folders in Google Drive. What I don't know is why the feature is hidden. You cannot find it at a glance.

This guide will help you in case you have a file that you need in multiple folders but you don't want to maintain 2 different copies of the same file.

 

Here it is what you have to do:
