Google Docs Basics

Creating and Saving a Google doc

You can also create a new document by logging into your Google Drive account, clicking on the "New" button, and choosing "Google Docs." Then select either "Blank document" or "From a template"



Remember to name your document, just as you would in any word processing program. To name your document, look to the top of your screen, at the box that should say "Untitled Document".


Clicking in this box will allow you to rename your document.

Google Drive saves your work automatically as you make changes, so you don't need to worry about saving your progress.
