Enhanced menus in Google Docs improves findability of key features on desktop

What’s changing 

We’re updating the menus in Google Docs to make it easier to locate the most commonly-used features. In this update you’ll notice: 

  • Shortened menus for better navigation 
  • Reorganization for more intuitive feature location 
  • Prominent icons for faster recognition

Why it’s important 

The new design improves findability of key features, making it quicker and easier to use Docs. Note that existing functionality isn't changing with this launch. 

For features that have been reorganized, we hope that their new menu location will be more intuitive and make it easier and faster to navigate the product. In particular, Apps Script-related functionality is now grouped under the new “Extensions” menu. This includes access to the Apps Script IDE as well as management of add-ons.
