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

Toggle Grid View

Indent the List Items
