How To Enter New Address in Full-Screen Mode of Google Chrome

By hitting on F11 key on keyboard, you can set Google Chrome to full-screen. This shortcut is same for Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer as well. But in case of Chrome, you don’t get a address bar slider in full-screen mode and that’s why you can’s enter a new site’s address. For opening a new tab in Chrome, you can use CTRL + T combination and to switch between different tabs, you can use CTRL + Tab or CTRL + 1, 2 , 3, 4…as per the required tab. But here I will show you simple trick to chromeenter new site’s address or to open a new site in full screen mode of Google Chrome browser. I think that makes the browser perfect for working in full screen mode because I feel irritated whenever I need to open a new site in Chrome in full screen mode and to do that I was used to hit F11 and then enter the address and again come to full screen by hitting F11. But not now, because you can use the below mentioned trick to open the new site without coming back to normal mode.

We are not going to use any extension for this purpose as there are some extensions which claims the same but doesn’t work at all. So here is the trick to open new site by entering address in full screen mode.

Open New Site without coming back to Normal from Full-Screen

1. Make Google Chrome the default browser on your computer. To do that, go to settings ==> Options page and there you can see an options as “default browser”. Set chrome as default browser.

2. If Google Chrome is open on your computer, then hit F11 to switch to full-screen mode

3. Now you need to hit (Windows Key + R) to open run command box of windows.

4. Enter new site’s address and hit “Enter”. You can see that the new site is opened in a new tab of the same browser. You can use above mentioned keyboard shortcut to open new sites in full screen mode of Chrome

Run Command box on Google Chrome Full-Screen

Done! Now you don’t need to come back to normal mode to just enter a site’s address on address bar of the browser. You can close an opened tab in Chrome by hitting (CTRL + W) combination on your keyboard. Go ahead and enjoy fullscreen Chrome on your big screen monitor.

Let me know in case you are facing any issue related to new site opening in Google Chrome. Post your thoughts on above trick and let me know if you are using any other extension or way to do the same.

    Nice one Sanjeev, Chrome looks good in full screen. But honestly, Google Chrome crashes on my system often. That’s makes me mad. Hope the next version, won’t do like that.
