Dear fellow reader, please subscribe to our YouTube channel and never miss great future videos! <3


There are many similar lists on the web, but many links are broken and not working anymore in latest Chrome versions (40+). This list is a streamlined version with fully working most useful shortcuts.

Accessing Google Chrome’s Settings on a daily basis can be inefficient way. Here is my list of shortcuts that I use when need to access some hidden settings or see internal stats inside Chrome:

Google Chrome Browser has a very unique feature: besides extending it’s basic functionality with extensions, you can also access every settings page inside it with a special URL shortcut (basically, you type it in the URL Address bar):

List of hidden system internals shortcuts

Media Internals: chrome://media-internals/
App Cache Internals: chrome://appcache-internals/
Voice Search Status: * chrome://voicesearch/
Hardware Acceleration: chrome://gpu

* with recent Google version 43 update this option became a hot topic, since the unauthorized and not so clear opt-out feature was reportedly installed and activated without user’s consent. This apparently has allowed Google and 3rd party companies to spy on your home. However, this page does not have any direct relationship with the disputed extension. It simply tells you whether devices such as microphone (or camera) are detected or not, and if Chrome has a capability to use them.

WARNING: DO NOT CHANGE SOME OF THEM UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING !

Flags (Options): chrome://flags/

What are Google Chrome flags? Flags are special internal browser settings which contain either (1) an important settings which define core browser behavior, (2) experimental features not stable and implemented yet inside currently stable/full version, (3) or features which are obsolete and “ready” to be soon permanently removed in the future releases, but are left for compatibility and user/developers adaptation purposes.

You should never rely on your Chrome customization via flags page, since those options can be easily removed with the very next update!
