You can select it with the menu shortcut. Alt+e will open the Chrome menu and then from there s will open Settings.

You can't do it within Chrome as they have not provide any shortcut for this in my knowledge (anyone can correct me if I'm wrong). You have to download the AutoHotKey and then install it on your system, now copy the following script and paste it on notepad and save it with extension .ahk where you can access it easily, now when you launch the Chrome just launch it with that.

SetTitleMatchMode, RegEx

#IfWinActive, - Google Chrome$

            ControlFocus, Chrome_OmniboxView1

Send chrome://chrome/settings/{Enter}


Now when you will press Ctrl+M then it will open the setting page for your Chrome. You can bind other key instead of M, you have to just repalce it with your desired one. Also If you want to use it with Alt key then replace the key ^ with !.

Edit: Also take a look at the Shortcut Manger plugin for Chrome.

from chrome 32 the ControlFocus's ClassNN no longer works, but the macro can be easily changed to ^M:::Send !es as @Karl suggests. – Dwelle Mar 25 '14 at 9:58

You can use Ferro to open the settings page and other pages, including "chrome://extensions", using only your keyboard. Alt-Shift-F, start typing the name of the chrome page you want (eg "settings"), and hit enter once what you want is the top suggestion.
