To those who work constantly on a computer, keyboard shortcuts are the easiest way to open options quickly. Opening an option with a couple of keystrokes is far less strain compared to dragging the mouse pointer, clicking on menu and submenu to open a particular feature. Apart from the strain, keyboard shortcuts also save couple of seconds which overall can add to big numbers while working for a long time.
Chrome extensions are add-ons that can be added to Google browser to add additional functionality to the browser. For e.g., web designers use multiple extensions for coding and design purpose. They have to open and close these extensions frequently. The presence of shortcut to open these extensions can make job much easier.
Fortunately, there is an option to set keyboard shortcuts to Google Chrome. And luckily, this is not a difficult task. The options are straight forward and can be set quickly.
