There is a keyboard shortcut possible to create a Word document:
Windows 10 English version:
Shortcut keys to create document files in windows 10
To create MS Access Database
To create Text Document
To create Winrar Archives
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!
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.
