The menu was actually called Open Location. I then used App Shortcuts in Keyboard Preferences to set it to Control+L.

I found this way more beautiful: edit ~/.bash_profile file and add alias chrome="open -a 'Google Chrome'" Now save the file and restart the terminal. You can now use commands like chrome file.html

Links are opened in the newest window, so the solution would be to open your media Window and move it to the TV first, then open another window for other things on your main display. EDIT: When it comes to preference, I too wish there was a way to change this behavior. Opening in the most recently focused window makes sense to me.

Holding the alt or option key while doing the Drag & Drop action works. I think since Chrome also handles webpages as links (html) to open them in the browser, it does the same for downloaded files. If you simply hold alt while clicking a link it also downloads the file. So I assume Chrome treats the downloaded "link" as a 'file' when holding that key. ...

My primary OS is OS X, however I do have a Linux Mint system I use and run into similar situations in which I want to do the same thing on both systems, and when it's not directly supported I have to find another way. In a case such as this, if there wasn't a Browser Extension for .desktop files, like in your other question about .url files, here is what I'd ...

It seems like the extension suggested by Matthew had stopped working for a while, so I'll put in my own solution. I personally use the Mac Fullscreen Tab Mover and binded the commands with option+left/right (so convenient!), but I also found others like Tab Mover which seem to do the same thing.

This is a known issue with Google Chrome. See:Chrome doesn't recognise .url files properly The workaround it to use an Extension such as .URL Handler Once installed you need to go to Chrome > Preferences... > Extensions (chrome://extensions/) and check the [✔] Allow access to file URLs check box.

OK did some digging around. It turns out that Google Chrome's security model normally doesn't allow clicking on .url files to open them. There is a Chrome extension that will allow this though so the solution is easy for OSX users.

At the present time the latest version of Google Chrome is: 50.0.2661.94 Under OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5...

If you go to Window->Task Manager in Chrome, it will pull up an activity monitor just for Chrome. Then, you can see if any extensions or sites you installed and are active are causing memory usage. You can also go to chrome://memory-redirect/ (or click the "Stats for Nerds" link in the Task Manager) to see this information partitioned in the following way ...

This is currently not possible because Chrome does few things its own way. Here is the bug that tracks this https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=42434 Still if you dream about adding a comment there forget it, even if Chromium is Open-Source the team decided that they don't need external feedback and disabled the commenting. There is also ...

I fixed this problem by going to Chrome://extensions Because I have Adobe Acrobat installed on my computer, the extension was present, but defaulted to 'disabled'. Toggling to 'enabled' now triggers a pop-up when clicking pdf links, to 'Open in Acrobat'

You could write a folder action script which would parse your downloaded files metadata and move them into folders based on kMDItemWhereFroms metadata attribute value. Or just use Downloads Router Chrome Extension with predefined location rules.

I know two products that do near the same thing as you want: Hazel (14-Day Trial): You can write rules to do actions when events are occurred. SafariStand (Open Source): If you use OS X older that 10.11 it can be used. Although you can install SafariStand only on Safari and it organized downloaded files according to the date of download. You can use the ...
