K is for Keyboard shortcuts in Google Drive

Before I share a long table of some of the short cuts, this is the most important item to remember.

If you want to know the shortcuts in Google Drive type in the following:

Chrome OS and Windows
Shift + /    or    Ctrl + / (Chrome OS, Windows)  
Either one works and they list the exact same list.

For the Mac
+ / 

Here are a few of the most commonly used shortcuts to illustrate.

To create new items in the different programs
[instead of going to New and select the program, which can be a few clicks]

Short cut
Shift + t
Shift + p
Shift + s
Shift + d
Shift + f
Shift + o
