If you are browsing symbols by folder, and you have an existing symbol(s) you want to update on the drive, you could right click on the symbol in the browser and click Save As, which will bring up the file Save As dialog where you can click Save or hit ENTER to save the symbol which will prompt if you want to replace the symbol, where you click Yes or hit Y on the keyboard for the dialog, and then it brings up the Edit Fields dialog to update any fields and then you can click OK or hit ENTER to save the symbol.

A slightly faster way is instead of using Save As, use Edit Fields. This bypasses the file name dialog and the file replace warning taking you directly to the Edit Fields dialog where you can just hit ENTER to save the symbol to the drive.
