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 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:
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:



New Doc

Then you can put the shortcuts in your Bookmarks Bar for easy access, like this:

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
