Chrome's omnibox features are really great, e.g. to create a new Google Calendar event.

Is someone aware of any possibility to create a new Google Keep note from the omnibox?

  • If you can find a URL that will create a new note then you can probably use the same method. However, Keep seems to be a single page/AJAX app and doesn't change the URL (except when displaying a note). As a workaround you could create a "search engine" that simply opens Keep. The cursor is then positioned in the "New note" box.

  • Thank you @w3dk! So basically creating a bookmark is the only possible workaround. What a bummer.

  • Well, you could use the above method so that you just type keep in the omnibox to be redirected to the Google Keep site?

    Tangentially related: Keep is a valid target for the "Note to self" voice command on Android.

You can write keep.new to create a new note. Make sure that:

  1. You are logged in with your Google Account
  2. You are online
