Is it possible to create a URL that will open a new Google Drive document, so that I can save as a bookmark and then will have essentially a short cut my bookmarks bar to be able to open a new doc?

Yes - this is the URL you need: https://docs.google.com/document/create


There is now a fancy new way: the .new gTLD.

Per QZ, all these URLs now work:

  • Docs: doc.new, docs.new, document.new
  • Forms: form.new, forms.new
  • Sheets: sheet.new, sheets.new, spreadsheet.new
  • Sites: site.new, sites.new, website.new
  • Slides: slides.new, deck.new, presentation.new
  • 1
    slide.new also works for Slides
