Below is my quick list of things you can do with your Google Docs, Slides & Sheet URLs. With any of these tricks, replace whatever follows the last ‘/’ of your document URL, which will follow the REALLY LONG unique document ID. For example:


Replace whatever is in bold in your doc that follows that last ‘/’ with the following to do some cool things:

  • /copy – will prompt the user to create a copy of that Doc/Slides/Sheets doc. Your original isn’t touched, and they own the copy!
  • /preview – will bring up your Doc/Slides/Sheets in a new window, with no headers or menus – just the content.
  • /present – will open your Slide show in a new window, full screen ready to present, with no headers or menus

Am I missing any? I’ll add more as I remember or learn new ones!
