    How to create new document straight from dock?

    by thereaperjoe4 ·


    Is there anyway to right click and create a new document directly from the dock icon for Word or Excel?

    I’m tired of clocking the programme open and then using a shortcut or going up to ‘File’ the menu bar.

    So if there was a programme/add on/anything… that would allow me to do it from the dock.
    I’ve got ‘New File Menu’ which allows me to do this in finder and think it’s great!

      In Windows (note: you posted in the Windows forum), it’s a right click on the desktop, then choose New, then choose MS Word document. No need at all for a third party add-on.

      Do I understand correctly that this can’t be done natively in Mac OS?

          There are some technical issues on the forums once in a while, especially for moderators, for some reason, so I created a non-moderator account kbtr1 also and used quite regularly. So I wasn’t really gone.

          But it’s nice to be welcomed back! Makes me feel welcome.

          And let me use the occasion to thank you for flagging spam posts you see. Very helpful!
