Creating files from templates in Google Drive is now easier

Google has made it easier for users to create files from templates by accessing those templates directly from Drive. Instead of navigating to the Docs, Sheets, Slides or Forms home pages, you are now able to simply choose a template right from your Drive home page. You can create files from templates by clicking on New → Google Docs/Sheets/Slides/Forms → > → from a template. You will be directed to the template gallery, where you can select a template.
