I do a LOT of copying from external sources and pasting into Google Docs/Sheets. Is this at all possible? I know the keyboard shortcut but can't seem to get used to it. Would save me so much time!

Google Sheets & Google Docs does not allow to alter internal keyboard shortcuts so your options are:

  • get used to official keyboard shortcut - CTRL + SHIFT + V
  • remap your keyboard

To easily remap your keyboard shortcut you can use powerful AutoHotKey script:

IfWinActive, ahk_exe Chrome.exe
    {
        ^+V:: ;CTRL+SHIFT+V
        Send, {F2}
        return
    }

Above example takes the given keyboard shortcut and binds it to F2 key.

CTRL + SHIFT + V doesn't work any more. Use Enter > CTRL + V > Enter instead.
