I’m not a fan of the new “Cancel and Save Changes” button in Google Sheets.

The old way: You could click on the save icon to cancel changes, or you could click on the X to close without saving changes. The latter is what I would do most often because it was faster than clicking twice (once for cancel, once for save). It also felt more intuitive that way — if there are no unsaved changes then why should I have to confirm my intention? And if there are unsaved changes then why should I be able to close without saving them
