If you use Google Chrome and you tend to open up lots of tabs during a browsing session, it can get hard to manage and organize all of your tabs. Here are a few fast and effective keyboard shortcuts to conquer “tab sprawl” and navigate your tabs quickly.

  1. Command + L = Highlight the URL in a tab
  2. Command + Option = Navigate between tabs by holding these down and moving the right or left arrow
  3. Command + W = Close current tab
  4. Command + T = Open new tab
  5. Command + Shift + T = Open the last tab you closed
  6. Command + Shift + click a link = Open a link in a new tab

Note: These commands are for Macs. Most of these shortcuts will have an equivalent on the Windows version of Chrome by using the Ctrl key instead of the Command key.
