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.

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.

Pin the 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)
