How To Create A New Google Doc Document
Google Docs is Google's direct competitor to Microsoft Word. Google Docs is a cloud-native browser-based word processing application that operates within the Browser. Unlike Microsoft Word that offers both a locally installed version of its application and a browser-based option, Google Docs is entirely browser-based.
Like the rest of the Google office applications, Google Docs is based around Google Drive. Google Drive is a central data storage hub for all of Google's products. Documents are created, stored, and organized within Google Drive.
There are multiple ways to create a new Google Doc. The easiest way to create a new document is through Google Drive itself. Navigate to the folder within Google Drive where you would like your new document to be saved. Right-click in any white space within that Google Drive page. A menu will appear. Choose the Google Docs option. This will open a new Google Doc document and save it to that Google Drive location.
There are other ways to create new Google Documents as well. This is only one example.
