I just recently switched from Windows and *nix to OS X, and I miss being able to hit F6 to go straight to my Address Bar. What's the OS X equivalent?
To switch quickly to the Address Bar use:
- Mac/OS X: ⌘+L
- Win/Linux: Ctrl+L
Catch and remap your keystroke in the browser.
Using Google Chrome 75.0.3770.100 64 bit on a MacOS Mojave 10.14.4.
Clearly the shortcut is command-L
But you want to change that keystroke to be
Command-e, like old times.
- Go to
- Click the plus to add a new Application specific key remapping.
- Choose Google Chrome.
- Use the string:
Open Location...case sensitive, include space and dots.
- Use the hotkey detector and type
- Click add and close to save. Restart Chrome. Press your new key.
File -> Open Location...command should be executed.
This remap appears to occur somewhere between how the Application negotiates the keymaps between itself and the operating system.
