Typically, if I am not in full-screen and the Chrome windows are on the same "virtual window" on my MacBook, I'll use "Cmd + `" which will take me to the next Chrome window open.

Is there a way to do this while in full screen in Chrome? Only change between Chrome windows?


Short answer: not possible.

This is not possible because the way in which Mac Spaces work and the function you're using are incompatible.

Mac Spaces organise content in different Spaces, and when you go fullscreen, that window gets its own Space.

cmd + ` switches between windows of the same application, but this state is not shared between Spaces.


Control+ and Control+ is a default keybinding to switch between full-screen applications on MacOS.

As far as I know, there is not a way to limit it to only Google Chrome.

Ctrl key + down arrow key

works like a charm for switching between chrome instances on my Macbook Pro.


You can switch between tabs with ControlTab or ControlShiftTab.

    Thanks, PlatiB. But the question was re: Windows, not Tabs. Cheers! – Scott Skiles Dec 24 '18 at 13:58
