Create new files by right-clicking on Ubuntu

I just learned a really helpful tip regarding Linux Ubuntu. I have been missing the possibility to quickly create new files by right-clicking on a folder. With this simple technique you can create all kinds of files quickly and easily. The steps are really simple:

  1. Open the program that can create the files that you need. For plain text files for example you can open Gedit (or “Text editor”).
  2. Save a file with the desired format and desired default name into the Home/Templates folder.
  3. Now you can simply right click anywhere on a folder and you have the ability to create those files.
