Google Chrome – Shortcut Keys

Google Chrome is one of those great browsers available out there. I personally use Google Chrome. Google Chrome has many special features like the Omni-box, New Tab Page and especially the speed with which it load pages, It is really super fast.

Keyboard Shortcuts are very important if you were to use a particular software often. Like Google Chrome, which is the most used software for a internet user and those whose work mostly depends on the Internet. Using Google Chrome can be made faster if you know a few shortcuts. So, I thought of listing them out, so that you can use them to increase your efficiency of using Chrome.

    To toggle the bookmark bar (which I hate looking at) I need CTRL+SHIFT+B, but otherwise, this works wonderfully. I copied it and put it on the desktop. Often, I wish I hadn’t closed a tab- it’s a pain to search the history- but now all I need is the CTRL+SHIFT+T. Thanks so much!

  19. You’re welcome mate ! Thanks for the share ! :-)
