Keyboard shortcuts of chrome OS
  

I am using the Samsung series 5 laptop which is having Google?s Chromium operating system. Everything on this chrome OS is working fine and I don?t have any issue. Now I wanted to get information on the shortcut keys on chrome OS. I have tried lots of website to get the shortcut but I didn?t figure out the exact one. More importantly I wanted to know shortcut key of chrome OS through which the usage becomes efficient. Can anyone suggest the same, would really be glad about it.

2. Ctrl+N - For a new window
3. Ctrl+Shift+W ? to shut the present window
4. Ctrl+9 - Go to the very last tab of the window

Re: Keyboard shortcuts of chrome OS

These shortcuts are available for users Chromebook in several ways. Initially, by means of the help menu there is a list of keyboard shortcuts. Second, when you press Ctrl-Alt-/, the color appears Chromebook keyboard layout and coded overlays your current job. Each keystroke is shown graphically in the design of the keyboard. Then, there is always printed cheat sheet or a marker for a position as the original there, so have a look on it.
