I thought everyone knew these Google apps shortcuts

This week, in both in-person and online conversations, I found out that a lot of people don’t know these quick shortcuts for creating new documents in Google apps. They’ve been around for a while:

  • Want to quickly create a new Google document?
    Enter doc.new or docs.new into your browser’s address bar.
  • Want to quickly create a new Google spreadsheet?
    Enter sheet.new or sheets.new into your browser’s address bar.
  • Want to quickly create a new Google slide deck?
    Enter slide.new or slides.new into your browser’s address bar.

In fact, domain names that end with .new have a specific purpose: they’re shortcuts to take actions in specific web applications.
