I was typing into Google Chrome's address bar and I think I hit some keys by accident that right aligned the text in the bar. This is very annoying! What might I have pressed? How can I change this back?

Okay, none of the above worked for me and i think i found a solution which works well on my Chrome for Windows 10. Holding Ctrl and then pressing the right Shift button moves the text in address bar to right. Holding Ctrl and then pressing the left Shift button moves it back to the left. Hope this solves your problem.
I've done this so many times to myself you'd think I'd know it by heart... but I don't. I don't even have access to a Windows machine right now to give more exact details. But essentially, you should be able to right-click the address box and somewhere in the context menu there should be right-to-left and left-to-right alignment options...
As for what keys were pressed to do that? I don't know. I've yet to figure that one out myself.
I am using Chrome on a Mac, the only way I found how to change text alignment (when typing) is to right click on the text box - 'writing direction' - RTL\LTR.
to view a page in a different alignment I use this extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/switch-direction/fldkjfjmcadcklboajlnclnfjpdopcce
if someone can tell how to change text alignment using a shortcut key that will be great!
