Use Bookmarks to Create New Files Quickly
Why not try using https://docs.google.com/create the next time you need to create a file? If you create a bookmark from this link, it becomes a quick-click way to open a new document! You could also replace the word “docs” in the URL with “sheets” to create a Google spreadsheet, “slides” to create a Google presentation, “drawings” if you want a Google drawing etc. If you use it regularly, you can create bookmarks for all of these to simplify your Google drive life!
Make Use of Templates
Templates were created to make our work load dramatically lighter! There is no need to work harder, impress people with how smart you can work. You can create anything from a professional resume, an agenda, presentation, project time line – as a matter of fact, before you start something, check this link to see whether a template exists. Simple go to https://docs.google.com/templates and select the best that fits for you.
Use your Drive to Store Files
Remember, the files people share with you on Google Drive are listed in the Shared with me section. However, the documents are just listed in your Drive – only the links are in your drive, not the actual documents.
There is a button, the Add to Drive-button at the top (in the toolbar), which can be used to save the actual shared file to your drive. It is there for a reason – make your life easier: store your documents safely.
