Chrome’s Keyboard Shortcuts

Posted: April 28, 2011 in Internet, Software

If you’re not much for the mouse, you’re in luck: Google Chrome has lots of built-in keyboard shortcuts, many of which mirror Firefox’s—so you don’t have to retrain your fingers. Here are a few of our favorites:

(Chrome only) Ctrl+B toggles the bookmarks bar on and off.
(Chrome only) Shift+Escape opens Google Chrome’s Task Manager.
Ctrl+L to move your cursor to the address bar.
Ctrl+K moves your cursor to the address bar to enter a Google search.
Ctrl+T opens a new tab.
Ctrl+N opens a new window.
Ctrl+Shift+T opens the last closed tab.
(Chrome only) Ctrl+Shift+N opens a new window in “Incognito Mode.”
Ctrl+Tab cycles through open tabs; Ctrl+Shift+Tab reverse cycles through open tabs.
Ctrl+J opens the Downloads tab.
Ctrl+W closes the current tab.
Ctrl+R refreshes the current page.
Ctrl+H opens the History tab.
Alt+Home loads your homepage.
Ctrl+1 through 9 switches to a particular open tab position.
Ctrl++, Ctrl+-, Ctrl+0 Enlarges, reduces, and restores default text sizes, respectively.
