I use keyboard shortcuts for practically everything on my PC. They save you a lot of time doing the most common tasks but it can take some time to get used to using them. So here is a list of Google’s Chrome new browser keyboard shortcuts. The bold ones are those that I use most:
Ctrl+BÂ toggles the bookmarks bar on and off.
Shift+EscapeÂ opens Google Chrome’s Task Manager.
Ctrl+LÂ to move your cursor to the address bar. Also works with ALT+D.
Ctrl+KÂ moves your cursor to the address bar to enter a Google search.
Ctrl+TÂ opens a new tab.
Ctrl+NÂ opens a new window.
Ctrl+Shift+TÂ opens the last closed tab.
Ctrl+Shift+NÂ opens a new window in “Incognito Mode.”
Ctrl+TabÂ cycles through open tabs.Â
Ctrl+Shift+TabÂ reverse cycles through open tabs.
Ctrl+JÂ opens the Downloads tab.
Ctrl+WÂ closes the current tab.
