Here’s a collection of 15 most useful tips and tricks for Google Chrome that will help you work faster and do more with your favorite web browser. You don’t have to install any extensions. It’s a big list so let’s dive right in.
1. Save web pages as PDFs
Google Chrome has a built-in PDF writer. Open any web page, press Ctrl+P on Windows (or Cmd+P on your Mac) and choose “Save as PDF” from the list of available printers to download that page as a PDF file
. No extensions required.
2. Assign custom keyboard shortcuts
Google Chrome supports a variety of keyboard shortcuts but you can also assign your own custom shortcuts to launch various extensions and Chrome apps
. Type chrome://extensions
in the browser’s address bar to open the Extensions page, scroll to the bottom and click the link that says Keyboard Shortcuts
3. Delete your web history selectively
Google Chrome’s history (chrome://history
) doesn’t have a “Select All” button so if you are to delete, say, 20 pages from the history log, you’ll have to select 20 checkboxes. The trick
is that you select the first checkbox, hold shift and select the last checkbox. Everything in between will get selected.
