Thank You Sooooo Much... Love from Pakistan....

F6 changes focus between address bar, bookmarks bar and webpage. Not just address bar and webpage.

Reply #1 admin Feb 21, 2017 at 10:08 am

fixed

Comment #32 by Sigurd Dec 22, 2016 at 06:37 pm  Reply

As #23: Alt+D, then F6, does not open bookmarks?

Reply #2 tallat ali Jan 11, 2019 at 08:11 am

That is not working???

Reply #1 admin Dec 29, 2016 at 12:33 am

fixed; you are correct. that no longer works.

Comment #31 by Dan Huang Mar 1, 2016 at 07:15 pm  Reply

Seems useful, but how come some characters seem Persian instead of alphabets (chapter 1, 9 and parts of 7 and and 8)?

Reply #1 admin Mar 7, 2016 at 07:18 am

fixed; Thanks for pointing this out; this fell through the cracks. Somebody edited the master english page instead of a local translated page. sorry.

Comment #30 by IteUrsi Oct 31, 2015 at 11:02 pm  Reply

I use a Chromebook. The keyboard does not have many of the dedicated navigation and F keys, such as Home, End, Page Up, etc. These keys are found in this list of shortcuts. Is there another comparable collection of shortcuts for the Chromebook keyboard?

Comment #29 by JohnDohe Sep 23, 2015 at 01:04 pm  Reply

What is the simplest, single key to press to move the cursor into the search field of a google home page in chrome browser. Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit, Chrome Version 45.0.2454.99 m Thanks!

Comment #28 by -nei1- Jun 29, 2015 at 08:31 pm  Reply

So much aggravation that the Chrome menu provides no way to close a single tab (Ctrl-W works for me; thanks). That is, until you come to this fine, long list of keyboard shortcuts, and keyboard shortcuts are faster than mousing, with a little practice. Now, I've got almost a hundred shortcuts; oy vai. Easiest to learn one keyboard shortcut at a time, as I realize I need it. Ctrl-D your list. -neil-

Hello, Thanks for your useful compilation of Chrome Shortcuts! I found what i was looking for but it does not work exactly as you say: http://www.shortcutworld.com/en/linux/Chrome.html#link_2 In the Address Bar: Alt-Enter - performs search in new tab (not adding www. and .com) Which is exactly what i was looking for! cheers,

Comment #26 by WXB Mar 8, 2015 at 04:23 am  Reply

Per Google Chrome Help - Keyboard shortcuts (https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/157179): Linux/Windows "Ctrl+Shift+D Saves all open pages as bookmarks in a new folder." Mac "⌘-Shift-D Saves all open pages as bookmarks in a new folder." P.S. Thanks for the lists!

Comment #25 by Sarah Jan 27, 2015 at 02:48 pm  Reply

Cntl-W now closes the whole window, not just the tab on Chrome for Mac. (Very annoying!)

Comment #24 by dae Jan 23, 2015 at 03:39 pm  Reply

When on the main google.com page, you can activate the microphone in the search box with Control+Shift+. (a period). (verified in Win7)

Comment #23 by Justin Dec 5, 2014 at 12:55 pm  Reply

The "up" links at the top of each section span the entire length of the table. I clicked one by accident and lost my place on the page. It was slightly annoying. I feel like the links should only surround the text and the up arrow icon. It's upsetting to click on a spot on the page (with seemingly nothing there) to set focus to my browser and accidentally click a link. Just sayin. This would make your site better IMHO. I'm using Chrome in case it makes a difference.

very nice shortcut

Reply #1 admin Dec 14, 2014 at 11:31 am

Hi Justin, good feedback and thanks for letting me know. Fixed it. sorry this took a while.

Comment #22 by Steve Nov 23, 2014 at 09:53 am  Reply

The guide says:
Alt+F4 Close current window

That is not correct, that closes Chrome. To close only the open Window you need control +W

Comment #21 by Nigel Nov 19, 2014 at 12:38 pm  Reply

Say I do a search on Google or a search on any shopping website for that matter and end up with 100s of pages to look at, is there a short cut to go to the "next page"? its a nuisance having to relocate my mouse over the "next page" button all the time especially as they move around all the time.

Comment #20 by Will Aug 6, 2014 at 06:39 am  Reply

I use CTRL+SHIFT+O quite a bit as well .. Bookmark manager. Great list, thanks!!

really very nice guide....

Comment #18 by Derek May 15, 2014 at 02:01 pm  Reply

The "alt + d, then f6" to jump to bookmarks bar is not working. I push either alt + d, or f6 and they both jump to address bar. If i push them again, it doesn't do anything.

The Win tab isn't working...
Otherwise, very useful. Thank you.

Reply #1 jeff Mar 22, 2012 at 09:55 pm

The "Win tab" I was referring to was via the Chrome shortcuts tab...

... though, I was able to access it by going to the menu on the left:
Platforms > Windows Shortcuts > Chrome
