Your Chromebook is a new type of computer that works somewhat 
differently than what you may be used to, so you might like to know 
how easy and useful things are when using it. Here are some tips and 
tricks.

How to create documents

1. Press the Search key 

 on your keyboard or select the Launcher 

icon .

2. Select  All Apps (or type "Google Docs", "Google Sheets", or 

"Google Slides" depending on the type of document you want to 
create) Create word processing files with Google Docs
spreadsheets with Google Sheets, and presentations with Google 
Slides
.

3. Select  Google Docs , 

Google Sheets , 

or 

Google Slides

.

 

That’s it. You’ve just created a new document in a few seconds. 
With your new document, you can add text, insert images, change 
the font, make it bold, underline it, italicize it – you get the gist. Most 
of the formatting and other stuff you might be familiar with from other 
productivity suites like Microsoft Office you can do with Google 
Docs.
