Manage Your Google Chrome Tabs And Windows From The Keyboard

When you enter a website into the omnibar in Chrome, you don't necessarily want it to open in the same tab or window. Fortunately there are a bunch of shortcuts to let you control exactly how Chrome handles your new destination.Here are all your options (Windows first, then Mac):

  • Control + Enter / Command + Return = Opens the URL in a new tab in the background
  • Control + Shift + Enter (or Alt + Enter) / Command + Shift + Return (or Alt + Return) = Opens the URL in a new tab in the foreground and selects it
  • Shift + Enter / Shift + Return = Opens the URL in a new window

Be sure to check out the video above for a full demonstration. Thanks the-soup!

Shortcut of the Day highlights a great shortcut on various platforms from the desktop to mobile devices to the web. You can find more shortcuts here.
