I have found this help page: http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1060734

But it only provides save and print keyboard shortcuts, I've to have shortcuts for the other functions (Fit Width, Zoom In/Out etc).

Do they exist?

Here are the shortcuts you need:

  • Zoom in: CTRL++
  • Zoom out: CTRL+-
  • Toggle between Fit Width and Fit Page: CTRL+\
  • Rotate clockwise: CTRL+]
  • Rotate counter-clockwise: CTRL+[
  • Download PDF: CTRL+S
  • Print PDF: CTRL+P
  • Scroll one page up: PgUp
  • Scroll one page down: PgDn
  • Search Document: CTRL+F
  • On my keyboard (a Nordic QWERTY), "+" and "\" are on the same key, so "Ctrl-+" and "Ctr-\" both zoom in

  • @jaam If I am not mistaken, on Nordic layout, instead of \, you must hit AltGr-+. So, in that case, I believe AltGr-Ctrl-+ should do the Fit Width and Fit Page. Of course, the Nordic version of Chrome might have a different set of shortcut for those.

  • Right and Left change one page at a time for me. PgUp and PgDn scroll one screen at a time. It is the same if you are viewing one page at a time, but different if you are zoomed in. Commented Dec 17, 2018 at 19:26
  • On an ABNT2 (Brazilian Portuguese) keyboard, Toggle between Fit Width and Fit Page is CTRL + }.

  • Important addition: Ctrl + Alt + G allows you to jump to a page. Commented Aug 26, 2020 at 16:36

I've tried some common hotkeys, you can zoom in with Ctrl++ (either regular one or the one on numpad), zoom out with Ctrl+-, and return zoom to initial value with Ctrl+0.

  • Yep standard "website zooming" will have to do for now. Commented Nov 19, 2012 at 7:50

To Fit Page for the Chrome PDF Viewer on Mac:

cmd ⌘ + ctrl ^ + \


Just '+' and '-' for me zooms a PDF without zooming the webpage/controls.
