Poster – Google Keep Keyboard Shortcuts

Google Keep allows you to keep sticky notes to remind you of all kinds of things. I use it a lot for anything I want to remember later. Since it is a Google tool you can access it from ANY device. Go to keep.google.com or install the app on your phone. Google Keep shortcuts help you to use this amazing tool even better!

Make a New Note

Go to keep.new or note.new and quickly create a Google Keep note. But once you’re in Google Keep simply press the letter C to compose a new note.

Press the C key to start a new note

Toggle Grid View

My favorite way to list notes is in Grid view, but you may just want a list of your notes. Try Control G (Command G on a Mac) to see it in a list.

Indent the List Items

I just recently realized you can indent the checkboxes. Now I am using it all the time. Use Control Bracket to indent (or un indent) the list item. (Command ] on a Mac)
