On the PC keyboard, the CTRL key is in the bottom left corner of the keyboard. So, it's very easy to hold it with your pinky, while keeping your hand in its normal position, so you can easily press the other key required for the shortcut (e.g., A, C, V, etc). On a Mac, the "equivalent" key to CTRL is Command.
As We Know Google Chrome is the most popular web browser and there is no denying it. Its open source version, Chromium, is also gaining a lot of popularity and some Linux distributions now include it as the default web browser.
If you have installed Google Chrome on Windows or any other operating system, you can improve your browsing experience by using Google Chrome keyboard shortcuts. There's no need to go over your mouse and spend time finding your way. Just master these shortcuts and you'll save some time, but be more productive with it.
Well, now you know that you can. By learning a few simple keyboard shortcuts, you can speed up your work.
To get the most out of your Google Chrome experience, here is a list of the most useful Chrome shortcuts that will boost your productivity while browsing the Internet.
Accidentally closed a tab? Open last closed tab)
This shortcut is probably the one that will get the most out of you on this list. This shortcut lets you re-open the last browser tab you closed – great for those times when you accidentally closed a tab. You can do this until you close the first tab after running Chrome.
Note: This feature does not work in Incognito Mode, so be careful when closing a tab in that mode.
This is for those times when you want to start a new chapter. To open a new window -
Already have too many tabs open? So now you should open the new tab in a new window. Use the Ctrl + N keys to open a new browser window.
If you want to open a new tab in the same window, then press-
Quickly jump to next and previous tabs - Navigate from tab to tab easily and quickly.
This is very useful when you have hundreds of tabs open at the same time. If you're used to having multiple tabs open while browsing the Internet, it can be frustrating to use your mouse partner to click on every other tab and see what's on it.
Instead, you can jump to the next and previous open tabs by simply holding these keys – Ctrl + PgDn or Ctrl + PgUp.
go to specific tab
If you're like me, you have multiple tabs open on your computer within seconds, so to jump between these open tabs, press Ctrl and any number between 1 and 9. For example, the Ctrl+1 shortcut will take you to the leftmost first tab.
Similarly, Ctrl + 5 takes you to the fifth tab from the left. This way you can move around a particular tab without clicking.
You can close the currently visible tab with the Ctrl + W keys. Now you don't need to move the mouse over the tab's x button at the top and see.
When you need to quickly close a tab in Chrome that's open, you can click the little X on this tab, but why do that now when you can just press Ctrl+W instead?
This Chrome shortcut quickly closes the tab that is currently open (ie the one you are currently viewing on your screen).
And remember, if you close a tab by mistake, you can always press Ctrl+Shift+T to bring it back.
Quickly close the entire browser window
Has it ever happened to you when you needed to close the entire browser window immediately? So at such times just press Ctrl + Shift + W and the browser window will disappear as if it never existed.
To minimize all the opened windows-
If for some reason, you're the kind of person who opens multiple windows instead of tabs, you can minimize the open window immediately by pressing Win + M.
This is useful if you have stacks of browser windows on top of each other.
To minimize only the current window – hold down the Windows key and press the down arrow key (twice).
If you want privacy, go to incognito mode-
for private browsing
Want to check flight or hotel prices online? Switching to Incognito Mode might help. In Chrome, open an incognito window with Ctrl+Shift+N.
Go to your download page-
Want to see what files you've downloaded using Chrome?
This shortcut brings up your Downloads window and lets you access downloaded files through the browser instead of using File Explorer on Windows.
Immediately open Bookmark Manager-
Use this shortcut to open the Bookmarks Manager on Chrome, which will let you select different bookmarks
