Quickly create new empty files on Gnome (Nautilus) desktops

I don’t know if you, like me, use the Desktop as a place for urgent notes. I do, and a lot!

I create empty files and rename it with the note I want to write in it and dispose of them easily deleting them whenever I don’t want the note to appear.

Unfortunately the way to create those files is not one of the nicest, if you are in a rush: right-click on Desktop, find Create Document and click on it, find Empty file and click on it.

That is why I found a quicker way using the keyboard:

Right click on Desktop
– Press D and then Return

And you have a new empty file ready to be written!
