There are various ways to go to a Chrome settings page. You can use the Chrome menu and select the Settings submenu. You may also type chrome://settings/ in the Chrome address bar or omnibox which will take you directly to the Chrome Settings page. However, we can do better. We can add chrome setting page URL to search engines and jump to desired setting rather quickly.
- Type chrome://settings/searchEngines in the address bar.
- Scroll down to “Other search engines” and add a new search engine.
- Enter “Chrome Settings” as a name for your search engine or whatever you would like to call it, “set” as the keyword you’ll type for activating search (again your choice) and URL as chrome://settings/search#%s
- That will be all!
Enter your keyword “set”, hit the TAB key and enter the keyword for the setting you are looking for. This will automatically open your chrome settings page, with only the matching setting options displayed and highlighted. This is especially useful if the option you are looking for is buried somewhere under advanced settings.
You may also use Chrome URLS to directly jump to some important settings. I have listed some of the most useful ones that you can directly type or bookmark. This will surely save you a few clicks right away.
