Is there a keyboard shortcut for creating a new Microsoft Word document?

Like CtrlShiftN creates a new folder?

I suggest using AutoHotKey which is a fantastic tool. You can access it here: https://www.autohotkey.com

Once you install the tool using this link: https://www.autohotkey.com/download/ahk-install.exe, you can start writing simple scripts to define your own shortcuts for any program or command in windows. For example I use:

=========================================

Alt + W to create a New Word file, using the script below:

!w:: Run WINWORD.exe

Alt + E to create a New Excel file, using the script below:

!e:: Run excel.exe

==========================================

To make your life easier so that the code is run every time you boot your laptop do this:

After you created a script, simply put it in your Windows Startup folder located at: C:*USER**\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Make sure you put your own username instead of the USER in the address above.

You can also use a tool in the AHK installed folder to generate simple .exe file out of your scripts!

  • I'd rather not install software to make this happen, since its possible with just windows 10. Thanks for your answer though. – Kars Barendrecht Nov 24 '17 at 9:15
  • Hey Kars, you are right. There is the built-in option to define hotkeys for programs’ shortcuts, however: 1) it only works for shortcuts 2) the shortcut should be located under Windows\Start Menu\Programs to work. The advantage of using AHK is that you can define hotkeys for any files or folder on your PC, and 1) it doesn’t need to be necessarily a shortcut file 2) doesn’t need to be located in the Programs folder under Start Menu. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks! – UCDMetalHead Nov 26 '17 at 1:05

Use the Quick Access Toolbar (<-pic) which is the mini menu that sits at the top left of your Word window. Add a new quick link for "New Blank Document", and then a new document will always just be a single click away.
