Keyboard shortcuts in Google Sheets for inserting a new row:

In Chrome on Windows or Linux:
  • Alt + I, then R
In IE or Firefox on Windows or Linux:
  • Alt + Shift + I, then R
On a mac:
  • Ctrl + Option + I, then R

Just remember I for Insert and R for row.

It's funny... I'm incredibly used to using keyboard shortcuts at the OS level and in desktop apps, but I often don't think to check for keyboard shortcuts in web apps. JIRA has been the one major exception—at some point early on in my use of it, they did a good job of encouraging shortcut usage—but this is a great reminder to investigate keyboard shortcut support in other common web apps.

I just got tired of right clicking and selecting insert new line all the time. It's an operation I do frequently on one of my sheets in particular.

Ha! I know the feeling! I've started using the "Bedtime" feature in iOS's built-in Clock app to remind me to go to bed though, otherwise... yeah... I have a definite tendency to want to stay up too late. I wish I could stop sleeping, but it's never worked out too well ;-)

And to think, it's just now been only 10 years since the iPhone came out and it didn't even support 3rd party apps at that time. Wasn't until the next year that the app store was available, so this market is only 9 years old!

I've had a similar issue with a Chrome extension in the past.

Dear Google Calendar Web Client,

I really like that you provide notifications to remind me when I've got a meeting in 10 minutes. I really don't like when you seize control of my browser and switch what tab I'm on to give me this reminder, specially when I'm in the middle of typing something and suddenly I've got a half formed sentence on some other window somewhere and I need to spend the next 5 minutes getting back to it and finishing my thought...

Why can't you offer up a browser notification instead?! Or is there a way to have you do that now that I just don't know about?

OMG! Yes! Thank you Craig! I remember some time long ago looking for something like that and it must not have existed yet... So I've just sort of lived with it being that way. Glad I decided to rant about this ;-)

Today I learned: how to save an image that's used in a Google Doc.

I love Google Docs, but I've always been annoyed that there didn't seem to be a way to extract embedded images. But it turns out that downloading the document is a way to get them. Go to File > Download As > Web Page, which then gives you a .zip file with all the assets. Open that, go to the images directory, and voilà!—the document's images are all there for you!

Hope this helps you as much as it helped me :-)

That question has surely plagued many a G Suite user! Thanks for sharing!

Anyone familiar with Google Photos and iCloud photos/videos storage tips and tricks?  I made a suggestion, but wondered if anyone else had any ideas for the asker?
