Hotkeys in Such Browsers as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge ⌨️🌐⚙️


Hello everybody! This video will tell you about hot keys or
key sequences in such browsers as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge. I will show you the key sequences which I
find most interesting and useful, where to learn them, how to change and assign them. Here we go. In one of the previous videos we had a look
at Windows key sequences and how to assign or change them. Find the link in the description: Let’s start with tabs. If you’ve opened many tabs while working
in the browser, press Ctrl+1-8 to select the one you need without using the mouse. It switches the screen to the tab corresponding
to the number of the key you press (1 takes you to the first tab and so on). Pressing Ctrl+9 will take you to the last
tab. Using Ctrl + Tab takes you to the next tab,
that is, one step to the right. To go one step back to the left, press Ctrl+Shift+Tab
The shortcut Ctrl+W will close the current tab. If you closed a tab by accident and you want
to have it back, the combination Ctrl+Shift+T opens the last closed tab. Or several of them, one by one. The next step is navigation. The most well-known navigation button in any
browser must be F5. You can use it to refresh the active page. It is useful when expecting an update on a
certain page, or an important email. To return to the previous page, press Alt+Left
Arrow. Alt+Right Arrow is an opposite command that
sends you to the next page. If you want to stop the page that’s downloading,
press Escape. Loading the page will stop. Key sequence Alt+Home quickly opens the browser
homepage. To zoom in or out, hold Ctrl and press + or
-. You can also do it by moving the scrolling wheel while holding down Ctrl. Ctrl+0 (zero) takes you back to the original
scaling. Working with large webpages can turn using
the scrolling wheel into a tiresome exercise. Yet it can be avoided. By simply pressing Page Down or Page Up, you
can quickly move the page one screen up or down. All respectable websites usually have a button
to take you back to the top of the page. Just like our website. If there is no such button, press Home. The webpage will jump to the beginning. In order to get to the bottom of the webpage,
press End. Sometimes links to webpages can be very long. It makes it difficult to select them with
a mouse. To quickly select a link to an active page
or any other text in the address bar, press Alt+D. After that, you can copy and paste
it by pressing Ctrl+С and Ctrl+V, accordingly. One more thing about links. If you are in a page which you wouldn’t
like to close, but you want to open a link in a new tab, put the mouse cursor on it and
left-click while holding down Ctrl. If there is no search field attached to your
browser window, and you need to find a word or phrase in this page, press Ctrl+F. This shortcut starts a search tool in the
current page. Just enter the word you’re looking for in
the search field and find the one you need using arrow keys. The browser history log is quite deep in the
menu. But to view history, just press Ctrl+H.
The same applies to downloads. Ctrl+J – Open downloads. To start a tool cleaning history, cache and
downloads, press Ctrl+Shift+Del Another one is for advanced users. Press Ctrl+U to view current webpage code. This is only a small share of browser hotkeys. I tried to show only those working with most
browsers in the top list. If you are interested, go to the description
to find links to official webpages offering all possible key sequences for the most popular
browsers: There are different ways to change the standard
browser shortcuts. In Google Chrome, these are extensions installed
from the browser’s online store. For example: Hotkeys or Shortkeys. In the same way, key sequences can be changed
in Mozilla Firefox. Users often recommend: Key config or Dorando
keyconfig. You can find the links to the corresponding
extensions in the description. Opera features a built-in option to change
or assign key sequences. To do it:
• Go to Settings / Browser / Shortcuts / Configure shortcuts
• In the menu that opens find the necessary action and assign a shortcut you like. • To do it, click on the field “Type a
shortcut” and press the key sequence. That is all for now. If you found this video interesting, click
