How to set custom keyboard shortcuts for an operation on websites in Chrome
In this article, I wrote the solution to add custom keyword shortcuts for specific operations on different websites and introduced the In-site Shortkeys extension.
You know that shortcut keys in a website limited to the shortcuts defined by the developer or owner. And this could be terrible and tormenting when you are doing routine and repetitive works on a website with a mouse.
There are three solutions to this. You can write a script and execute it to do your action if you are a programmer. Or you can ask the development team to add the shortcut you need, which is silly and almost impossible :D.
The third solution is to use the In-site Shortkeys extension in Google Chrome . You can easily define shortcut keys for specific operations on a website with this extension. It’s easy to use, you just need to press the add shortkeys button. The extension will catch your clicks, then you can define custom keys as a shortcut to call your operations on that website.
Adding multi-step operations is an outstanding feature of the In-site Shortkeys . This means that you can set shortcuts for consecutive clicks and when the keys fired, it will execute the operation step by step with a pre-defined delay between each step.
The shortkeys are unique to each domain it means that keyboard shortcuts defined for a site are callable only on that site.
In determining shortcuts, any combination of keys is valid except chrome-reserved shortcuts like ctrl + n, ctrl + w, ctrl + shift + n, etc.
The point to note is that the extension only works on websites. It means you need to focus on the website itself, not another window.
The In-site Shortkeys is an open-source project (GitHub Repo), so you can contribute if you wish. I hope this extension will be useful to you.
