Google, who owns the .new top level domain, has set it up for you to quickly create several types of Google Documents. In the url bar of any browser type the kind of Google document that you want to create followed by .new. For example, docs.new in the url bar will create a Google Docs document. If you are not signed in to Google Drive, you will be prompted to log in before the document is created.

Here are the document types that can be created and what you type to create them:

  • Docs – doc.new, docs.new, documents.new
  • Sheets – sheet.new, sheets.new
  • Slides – slide.new, slides.new, deck.new, presentation.new
  • Forms – form.new, forms.new

This way of creating documents joins the old way of quickly creating documents by appending /create to the end of the (docs|sheets|slides|).google.com url. Either way, the documents you create go in the root of your Google Drive, so I’ll probably still use my bookmarked links that let me create a document in a specific folder. Or, if you are signed in to multiple Google accounts, these links will let you create a Google document with a specific account.
