Regardless of which software you are using, knowing the available shortcuts that you can use in times of need will help you a lot in speeding up and simplifying the tasks that you are doing on that software. Web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome have become among our mostly used software since the Internet started to take a major part of our daily activities.

Based on your operating system (Windows, Mac or Linux), there are certain keyboard shortcuts that are universal to all software. For example, in Windows platforms, Alt + F4 is the shortcut for closing a program and Ctrl + N is the shortcut for creating a new document in the program that is currently open.

In addition to the shortcuts commonly used by all programs in the operating system, most software programs also provide their own shortcuts to make it easier and faster for you to use the program. Web browsers are a good example to that. For example, if you are spending a lot of time browsing the Internet and using your web browser features frequently, it will be good to know the shortcuts for the actions your frequently do.

Now, let's see what keyboard shortcuts Google Chrome browser has for Windows operating systems.
