Chrome/Firefox Keyboard Shortcuts

I just discovered this trick. Soooo handy! So simple and quick.
( Ctrl+3 takes you to the 3rd tab, etc.)

ctrl+1 through ctrl+8 Switch to the tab at the specified position number. The number you press represents the position of the tab on the tab strip.

  1. Thanks Mike – I’m a keyboard addict, so those are great. (My teenage kids just laugh at me!)

    I use Firefox, and I know you can use Ctrl+Tab to CYCLE through the tabs, too. (Add Shift as well to “cycle backwards”.) Ctrl+PageUp/Down also work.

    Another shortcut I use all the time is F11 to go full-screen, hiding the toolbar until you mouse-over the top of the screen. Press F11 again to return to normal. (That works in IE too.)

    Lastly, Ctrl++ and Ctrl+- zoom in and out. Much quicker than using the menus if the content’s too big or small. (Ctrl+0 returns to 100%.)

    Anyway, I hope those are helpful. Thanks for starting the ball rolling!
