What's the shortcut to select Address bar of the current page on Google Chrome?
I always have to create a New tab to write in address bar. So is there any shortcut?

Control + L on Windows and Linux, or Command + L on Mac.

On Windows, F6 or Alt + D also works.

    Ctrl + L and Cmd + L work in Firefox and IE as well. (I would also assume they work in Opera and Safari.) Aug 21, 2012 at 12:43

  • On my Mac I mapped cmd+L to lock screen for consistency with Windows. I've to create a keyboard shortcut specifically for this: macos settings -> keyboard -> shortcuts -> app shortcuts -> select Google chrome -> Open Location... -> F6

I guess you mean to select the address bar. ALT+D selects the address bar in most of the web browsers around.
