How to Use Google Chrome Commands - Access Dozens of Chrome's Features and Settings

 

Google Chrome is highly customizable, allowing you to fine-tune the browser through hundreds of settings that affect virtually everything ranging from the application's appearance to its security-related features. While many of these tweaks can be made through the interface's graphical menu buttons and links, Chrome commands let you really get under the hood and take full control of your browser.
These commands, entered into Chrome's address bar (also known as the Omnibox), not only provide shortcuts to settings accessible through the browser menus but also access to advanced options which are only available via this method. Below are some of the most useful Chrome commands along with a brief description of each.
As always, it is best to use caution when modifying your browser's settings. If you are unsure about a particular component or feature, it may be best to leave it as is.

Re: accidental delete of downloads directory, need to restore, urgent!

I see that this message tells you how to get into the feature I was discussing.  I hope system restore is on on your machine.  If it is, you will see previous versions.  If not, you won't. 
 
As I think about it, you don't have to check to see if System Restore is on.  You have to see if previous versions of the folder exist.

Dave,
I found this by googling. Haven't tried it but you can try it.
  1. Open Computer by selecting the Start button. , and then selecting Computer.
  2. Navigate to the folder that used to contain the file or folder, right-click it, and then select Restore previous versions.

Good morning Dave, how distressing! However, the cure is simple.

Open search with your Windows key, and type recycle.

This should open your recycle bin within which you can arrow to your
downloads folder which you had deleted. Press the applications key and
select restore.

If it's a large folder it may take some time to follow your actions.

Good luck

Hello,

I don't usually cross post, so please forgive this posting.

I need help quite urgently actually. I made a mistake and accidentally
deleted my download directory in my user profile, this is on a win10
pro 64 machine. The download folder was highlighted and I hit delete,
I wanted to delete another folder not downloads so I realized I was on
the wrong folder, hit tab to no or what I thought was no and hit
enter, as I did my machine shut down. It's having a heating problem
that I'm going to partially address today and fully address with a new
case. On reboot I found that download directory was gone. I need to
get it back. It's been quite a while since I've had to do this, help!

Any help appreciated.
Thanks.
Dave.

 




Re: accidental delete of downloads directory, need to restore, urgent!

The first question is whether system restore is operating on the machine.  If so, the machine is probably using a feature of system restore called Shadow Copy.  Shadow Copy makes copies of your files and folders as they were when the restore point was made.  I don't know if you work with it in the same way in Windows 10 as in earlier versions of Windows.  I almost never use it aned I'd have to look at how it is done in Windows 7 to describe the procedure.  It may well be the same, given my recollection of the interface concerning using Shadow Copy in Windows 7. But you don't run something called Shadow Copy. You use a feature called "previous versions."
 
Since I don't have Windows 10, I'll let others describe how to check to see if it is on.  After you find out, if it is on, I'll look at how to see and restore from Shadow Copy.  But just running a restore point probably won't restore the folder.  If you are using the downloads default folder, it probably isn't reverted as part of system restore.  You would probably have to use Shadow Copy for that. 
 
And that may be the same for other folders that aren't used as program and system and Windows folders.

There is one that synchronizes bookmarks across the browsers it is called Eversync.

Another bookmark manager is called Linkstash from http://www.linkstash.com

 

This one saves the links in it’s own database and you launch the link from it’s interface and not from your browsers.  It reminds me of Windows Explorer.

Abby,

 

I always have more than one browser, so I have started doing a very round about thing.

 

When I find a page I want to save in Chrome, I copy the URL from the address bar, and just in case I get busy and forget, I paste it into a notepad document with the title of the page.

 

I go ahead and save it using Chrome, but later I will open up IE and paste the URL of the page into the address bar after pressing control plus O.

 

I then save it in IE and I have a folder inside my IE favorites folder where all of my webpages are completely organized. This allows me to have it where I want it and when using Chrome, if I want, I can just go to that favorites folder and enter on the page, finding it quite easily.

 

It sounds complicated, but it is actually very quick to do.

 

I just read that the issue with Chrome and bookmarks is a JAWS issue, so maybe it will get fixed.

 

Vicki

This is one thing I don't like about Chrome. There seems to be no control over where bookmarks go when you add them. I no longer bookmark pages. I save them by pressing Control S. This opens the usual save-as dialog, where you can navigate to where you want the file to go. It's saved as an html file that you can open in Chrome by pressing Control O. The down side is that once you've saved the page and opened it in Chrome, there's no way to get a link to that page to include, say, on your blog or website. So, if somebody else has any more brilliant ideas, I'm all ears.

Facebook - Chrome vs Firefox

 

Hi,
Just now I was testing the m.facebook webpage with Chrome, which isn't my default browser, to see if I could reproduce a certain behavior.
Well, besides the fact that I couldn't reproduce what I was trying, I noticed that Chrome and Firefox behave very differently on the same webpage and thought that I'd ask it here.
Does anyone know why this happens and if is there a way of making Chrome shows the m.facebook site the same way as Firefox shows it?

Re: How do I share a file with Dropbox?

Gene
 

New main instructions start on new lines.
When using the computer utility, find the file you want to share in the list. 
Open the context menu.
Find copy link to clipboard, or some wording like that.
Press enter and after a brief pause, you will hear that the link has been copied.
Paste it into something such as an e-mail message.  The recipient will be able to use the link to download the file.
After you paste it, look at the last character in the link.  It will be a 0.  Change it to a 1.
That will allow for a download just by following the link.  If you leave it as 0, when the link is followed, a web page is opened.  Changing the 0 to a 1 bypasses the web page and starts the download just as any standard download link does.

That is a good diagnostic. This also happens at the Senior Center, but they also are in a low place with woods in the back. I believe my better signal could be here at my computer between my router and an outside window. I don't think the router has anything to do with it though, sense I haven't set up yet for Wi-Fi. Like Pam, I can call from the house phone we have, and my phone will ring.

Three bars is not a marginal signal. I don't know how many bars your phone has, mine has five as a maximum. Whatever the case, three bars is not a low signal. You aren't using Wi-Fi so the router is irrelevant. The question is, where are you in the house when you miss a call? What is the signal strength there? I'm very doubtful signal strength is the problem, especially after you said you are receiving a three bar signal in a certain room. But if you don't know what room you miss calls in, go into every room and check the signal strength.

Is this happening with all incoming calls? The reason I ask, is because some robocall companies have figured out how to make the call go straight to voicemail. Also, how's the reception where you live? Not having service can cause the phone to send calls to voicemail.
