I've noticed within the last week that the commandoptionh keyboard shortcut to Menubar / Chrome / Hide Others has disappeared from the latest version of Google Chrome (70.0.3538.77) on macOS (10.13.6) High Sierra.

Chrome menu

Pressing the shortcut does nothing (it hasn't been remapped to a new command) in Chrome. The shortcut still appears and works in all other Apple and third-party apps.

Finder menu

Running Disk Util First Aid and rebooting macOS doesn't help. I can workaround by adding a custom shortcut to System Prefs for Chrome or for all apps, by why did this happen, is there a better, more direct fix?

This was a bug that appeared in Chrome 70.0.3502.0. It was fixed in Chrome 72, which was released a few days ago.

If the keyboard shortcut is still missing from your copy of Chrome, you might need to quit and then reopen it for the new version to become active.

To confirm you're on the new version, open Chrome and then either go to chrome://settings/help or select About Google Chrome from the Chrome menu.

Ran into the same problem and followed the instructions in How to Create Custom Keyboard Shortcuts in Mac OS

    Read the last part of the question, it states, "I can workaround by adding a custom shortcut to System Prefs for Chrome or for all apps, by why did this happen, is there a better, more direct fix?", so he already knows how to assign a keyboard shortcut but that's not what he's asking... he asking "why did this happen, is there a better, more direct fix?" – user3439894 Nov 13 '18 at 11:03
  • Right sorry guess I didn't read that part so buzzing of to do something else. File a bug on chrome? – fredrik Nov 14 '18 at 14:15
