Google has a useful feature if you create a lot of new Google docs, calendar entries, spreadsheets, and more. They have registered a collection of internet domains that are shortcuts to create new items. This tip works for all document types, including Sheets, Docs, Slides, Calendar, Sites, and Forms.
You can test it right now. Open a new browser tab and type docs.new into the address bar. You will immediately open a new blank document.
Google wants to make this easy to remember, so there are multiple options for each document type. For example, there are three options to create a spreadsheet, you can use sheet.new, or sheets.new, or even spreadsheet.new.
You can also create a shortcut for one-click document creation. The example on the right shows how I created a “Favorite” on my toolbar that creates a new meeting with one click.
I created this in Microsoft Edge. If you use Firefox, Chrome or Safari, your screen will look a little different, but the principle is the same. Once you have created your browser shortcut, it will look something like this:
Here is the full list of Google ‘.new’ shortcuts. The multiple shortcuts listed for each product do the same thing, so pick the one you like best.
