Other Cool URL Tricks


Docs.New in the Search Bar

In our last post, we introduced the idea of adding a - between the t and the u in YouTube. This got me to thinking about a few other cool URL tricks that I thought I would share. 

If you or your students need to quickly create a new document, presentation, or spreadsheet, you can use this trick. Simply type in docs.new, slides.new, or sheets.new into your browsers URL bar, and you will be taken blank document ready for you to create! Try it out!

This can be useful when a thought comes to mind, or your class takes a turn for something amazing. I know that while I was in the classroom, we would take a turn for something and then have to get something to take some notes.
