Google Chrome Setting URLs

Written by Eric Wyatt (last updated May 31, 2021)

Previously I shared a list of Edge Chromium Setting URLs. As discussed in that article, the new Edge browser is built on the Chromium open-source engine that Google's Chrome browser is also built on. The Chromium engine allows for access to browser settings within the browser itself without the need to open a dialog box or drop-down window. Google's Chrome browser allows for many of the same URL shortcuts listed in the previously mentioned article, but all you need to do is to replace "Edge" with "Chrome" (without the quotes.) Simply enter the URL for the settings section you want to access in the address bar and then press Enter.
