How To Sort A Document In Google Docs

I was working on a list of Windows shortcuts in Google Docs. Docs is my app of choice for word processing as I use it on any of my devices even spending a lot of time in it while on the road using my iPhone. 

The list was fine but not in any kind of order. Using Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V to put it in order one line at a time was not going to cut it. Excuse the pun.

  • Win+A: Opens the Action Center
  • Win+Esc: Closes the Magnifier
  • Win+D: Hides all windows. Hit again to restore windows
  • Win+I: Opens the Settings app
  • Win+C: Activates Cortana listening mode
  • Win+Down: Minimizes the current window
  • Win+E: Opens File Explorer

Google Docs does not have a way to sort but there is an Add-on that will enable that feature.
