Shorter URL of a document library

I always like to access our company's SharePoint Document Library via URL. And on the way I like to save every keystroke (can't help it - I'm lazy). To have the url of the document library as short as possible, when creating it make the following:

  1. Create document library and name it something very short - for example doc

  2. When the library is created, under Modify Settings and Columns in that document library click Change general settings and now you can rename your document library to the desired nime, like for example Company's Documents


Yeee. Now you can access your document library couple of clicks faster:

http://yoursharepointurl/doc

Good point, Boris.
I discovered something similar while working on Photo libraries. Beware of characters that can't be used in filenames, for example /
