In Windows Chrome, alt + d is the shortcut.
What is it in Mac Chrome?

Chrome support has a list of shortcuts for the Mac version. You will find the -L shortcut will perform what you are trying to do.

For Windows Chrome, you can also use Ctrl-L and F6 to highlight the address bar.

  • thank you very much! and the list is just what i wanted!

MacOSX Chrome Address bar focus: -L


The keyboard shortcut L focuses the address bar / search bar / omnibox.

Note that the menu text for this command is:

File > Open Location...

This menu text can be used in System Preferences to bind a different keyboard shortcut.

    Binding Option (Alt)+something isn't working unfortunately for me.
