If you've been a user of Google Docs, Sheets, or other G Suite tools for a long time, you may be struggling to navigate to a website Document, Sheet, Form or other file every time you need to start a new one. On the scale of things that are incredibly annoying, it takes three seconds to open a new spreadsheet. Nevertheless, Google has kindly removed this multi-tiered process by announcing its recently introduced ".new" domains.
This efficient shortcut, announced by the company in a Thursday tweet, will allow users to quickly navigate to a new file of their choice directly from their URL bar. What is special about this new feature, however, is that Google seems to be considering anyone who forgets about specific domain links with variations in the names of its tools. For example, a new table with the ".new" domain can be retrieved using the term sheet, sheets, or spreadsheets. Google noted that all files created from one of its ".new" domains are automatically saved to Google Drive.
See the complete list of domains that can be used to upload his productivity or collaboration tools:
Documents: doc.new, docs.new, Dokumente.new
Shapes : Form.new, Shapes.new
Sheets: sheet.new, sheets.new, table.new
Pages: site.new, sites.new, website.new  Slides: slides.new, deck.new, presentation.new
As TechCrunch notes, users have been calling for similar shortcuts to Google Drawings, Gmail, and others ever since announcing Google's ".new" shorthand.
Sure, in terms of efficiency, this only saves you seconds of navigation time. But it's still a nice shortcut for the enthusiastic G Suite user.
