Distraction-Free Writing In Google Docs; No Add-Ons Necessary

We've highlighted a variety of ways to create a distraction-free writing environment including altering Microsoft Word and running portable applications. This is much easier: open a Google Docs template and set your browser fullscreen.

Over at Digital Inspiration they've created a simple Google Docs template that emulates the green-on-black minimalism of early word processors. All you need to do is visit the link below to open the template in Google Docs, hit CTRL+SHIFT+F (to "Fullscreen" Google Docs), and then hit F11 (Fullscreens most web browsers). Two keyboard shortcuts and you've got a distraction-free writing space.

If you're curious to see the coding magic that turns Google Docs into a green-screen terminal, check out the link below to Digital Inspiration. They have a detailed explanation of how they created the template and include instructions on how to alter the template colour scheme to anything you want.
