Google is well-known for being a go-to provider for Internet-related services and solutions.

  • Enter or O will let you open an item you have selected, while N will let you rename it.
  • Z lets you move an item to a selected folder, while S will star or unstar them.
  • You can use these shortcuts to create various items:
