If you’re a Google Chrome user that also uses Google Docs, you can save yourself a lot of time by adding Docs to the search bar so you can easily search all of your documents with just a few keystrokes.


Add Google Docs Search to Chrome

Right-click on the location bar and choose Edit Search Engines from the menu, and then click the Add button.





Now you’ll want to put in a name and keyword, and then under URL add one of the following URLs depending on whether you’re using Google Docs or Google Docs for your domain. Make sure to substitute your custom domain name in the second one.





Now you can simply type in your keyword, hit Tab or space, and then start typing your search.





And that’s all it takes… now you’re searching Google Docs easily.
