People are going wild for a handy new shortcut that will change the way you use Google Docs
- Google has introduced new URLs that can open up blank Google Docs with the click of a button.
- To try it out, simply point your browser to doc.new or other Google URLs.
- Here's an incomplete list of these new URLs, along with a way to take the shortcut to the next level.
Last last month, Google rolled out a new time-saving shortcut for anyone who spends a lot of time in Google Docs.
To open a new, blank document - or spreadsheet, or presentation - all you have to do is go to one of Google's handy new URLs.
So if you want to start a new document, you just have to type "doc.new" into your browser.
Here's an incomplete list of the new shortcuts:
- http://doc.new - opens new Google document
- http://sheets.new - opens new Google Sheets spreadsheet
- http://deck.new - opens new Google presentation
- http://site.new - creates new Google sites website
- http://form.new - creates new Google form
This might seem like a minor new shortcut, but a lot of people are pumped.
If you want to take this shortcut to the next level, you can create bookmarks for these new sites in your bookmarks bar.
In Chrome, simply go to Bookmarks > Bookmarks Manager > Add new bookmark.
Then create a bookmark with these URLs and whatever you might want to call the shortcut, like this:
Then you can put the shortcuts in your Bookmarks Bar for easy access, like this:
