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+B toggles the bookmarks bar on and off.

Shift+Escape opens Google Chrome’s Task Manager.

Ctrl+L to move your cursor to the address bar. Also works with ALT+D.

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.

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. Also works with F5.

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.
