Google Chrome's Keyboard Shortcuts

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.
