Today, in this article, we are going to get to know Google Chrome better. By making the most out of some of its features, you can make your life easier.
Here are four features you should start using right now:
Sync Google Chrome with your Google account
One of the best things that Chrome offers you is to sync your passwords, settings, and bookmarks to your Google account. If you’re using more than one laptop, and you switch them a lot (perhaps between home computer and work computer?), sync allows you to get access to all of your bookmarks and to the account settings of any device in no time. All you have to do is to log into your Google Account and then go to Settings, under the Google Chrome menu icon – those three points. From there, adjust the sync settings.
Keyboard shortcuts are everything
Like any other respectable browser, Google Chrome has a lot of keyboard shortcuts, which can help in improving your productivity. Here’s a list of the best ones:
Ctrl+T = Open a new tab
Ctrl+H = Show history.
Ctrl+K = Move the cursor to the address bar.
Ctrl+J = Open Downloads window.
Ctrl+Shift+T = Undo any closed tab.
Crtl+1 to 8 = if you press Ctrl, with any number between 1 and 8, it will get you the corresponding tab from the tab bar.
Ctrl+9 = it will get you to the last tab.
The autofill feature can save you
When you use the autofill feature from Chrome, it automatically fills out any online form, any common field, such as your name, your address, your e-mail, and so on. In order to activate the autofill feature, you need to click the Customize and control Google. Then, you need to go to the Chrome icon – those three dots – from the upper-right corner of the browser window. Then go to Settings, at the bottom of the dropdown menu, click on Show advanced settings. Then Click Manage Autofill settings, that’s under Passwords and forms.in the window with the Autofill settings, click the Add new street address button. Then you need to fill out all the address settings that you want to be saved, then press on OK.
Make the most out of the Chrome Task Manager
Each tab that’s opened runs its own sandbox in order to help the stability of the browser, so it can get difficult actually to see the system resources that are used. Let us take a clear example: in the Windows Task Manager, you can see cases of Google Chrome running each of the opened tabs. You can use the Chrome Task Manager in order to see how much memory and CPU resources every open tab and extension use.
In order to open the Task Manager press Shift+ Esc. Or you can click on the Google Chrome menu icon – those three dots from the top-right corner of the window – and click on Tools and then on Task Manager.
