Image from store AutoControl Shortcut Manager
Description from store   ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ SUMMARY ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ AutoControl is the one and only shortcut manager that can redefine or disable ALL browser's native shortcuts. AutoControl is the one and only shortcut manager that works on ALL tabs. You will not be able to do any of this with regular Chrome extensions. AutoControl IS NOT A REGULAR EXTENSION. AutoControl currently works on Windows operating systems only. If you are still interested, read on to learn why AutoControl is different. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ AutoControl is a native extension ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ AutoControl brings out the power of Chrome's native extensibility to gain essential advantages over regular extensions: ✔ AutoControl doesn't inject code into every page you visit, thus avoiding sluggish page loads and conserving CPU and memory. ✔ Shortcuts and gestures are implemented natively, which makes them respond instantly. ✔ AutoControl can redefine Chrome's factory shortcuts, like Ctrl+Tab and others, to perform any action you want. ✔ AutoControl works on all tabs. Either the New Tab Page, Chrome pages, extension pages, protected pages, PDF documents, you name it. Learn more about native extensions at the FAQ: http://autocontrol.app/faq ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ FEATURE LIST ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ➭ Change or disable Chrome's native shortcuts. ➭ Create your own custom shortcuts. ➭ Shortcuts may include keyboard keys, mouse buttons and joystick buttons. ➭ Shortcuts support wildcards to allow or disallow extra keys. ➭ Shortcuts can have multiple steps. http://rb.gy/dve714 ➭ Supports address bar shortcuts. http://rb.gy/rumdyb ➭ Supports hover-sensitive shortcuts. http://rb.gy/s8dfnc ➭ Shortcuts may be local to Chrome or global. ➭ You can assign shortcuts to bookmarks and bookmark folders. ➭ Mouse gestures (horizontal, vertical and diagonal directions). ➭ You can restrict shortcuts and gestures to specific websites. ➭ Create custom toolbar buttons to perform any desired action. http://rb.gy/vhxaoa ➭ Create custom menus with your open tabs, closed tabs, bookmarks, bookmark folders and more. http://rb.gy/vfzp8u ➭ Menus can display tab thumbnail previews. http://rb.gy/wdjkus ➭ Supports a wide variety of actions: Tab actions, Window actions, Bookmark actions, Clipboard actions and more. ➭ Actions can be applied to one or more tabs and windows simultaneously. ➭ Actions are composable, they may be simple or complex. http://rb.gy/qlotmo ➭ Provides a scripting API and script editor that allows to build your own custom actions. http://rb.gy/cdolbe ➭ AutoControl works offline. No need for an internet connection. ➭ AutoControl does not access or collect your personal data. See what's new at: http://autocontrol.app/update-history ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬  SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS  ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Being a native extension demands additional development effort to support each operating system. For this reason, AutoControl is initially supported on: • Windows XP * • Windows Vista * • Windows 7 • Windows 8 • Windows 10 *: Not supported by the Chrome Web Store. You must install from: http://autocontrol.app/manual-install ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬  PERMISSIONS  ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ When installing you'll see a message saying that AutoControl can "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit". This is a standard message generated by Chrome. AutoControl does NOT access any personal information. Please read our privacy policy to learn more: http://autocontrol.app/privacy-policy ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬  DONATIONS  ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ AutoControl is offered free of charge to everyone for their own use and benefit. We, the developers, do not obtain economic reward out of it other than the kind donations of our users. We'll gladly accept your financial support at: http://autocontrol.app/donations Please help us keep the project alive. The AutoControl team thanks you.  

Latest reviews

  • (2021-03-03) Mahdi Hasan: The best thing about this extension is that is very easy to use and I don't need to learn anything. Just by exploring different options and from quick tip "?" icon, I can understand pretty much everything. :D :D
  • (2021-02-20) DIEGO REYNOSO OROZCO: No me gusta que te pida instalar un programa .exe en tu computadora, debería correr solo con la extensión de Chrome. Desconfío de esos procedimientos.
  • (2021-02-12) Spiderantula: It's lacking option to set shortcuts for developer tools, which is what I need. Otherwise good.
  • (2021-02-03) Aimee Alise: 太好用了,,,试了好几个,就这个能自定义快捷键!!
  • (2021-02-02) 徐天培: 神级扩展,亲测谷歌自家网站上有效,快捷键和鼠标手势两种功能都有!
  • (2021-01-26) Zacman X: Please add an option to add vim-like bindings (for example pressing k, releasing it and then pressing j to switch to the next tab) and it will be perfect

  • (2021-01-16) Matin Hosseini: 😍😍😍😍AWESOME !!!!!
  • (2020-12-15) Heath: ***UPDATE | BEWARE*** Windows Defender & Norton AV both scan this as a Trojan Virus which gives them access to your computer, files and everything else. I had no choice but to remove the extension and change my review from five stars to one star. Detected: Trojan:Win32/CryptInject!ml Details: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker. Found in: file: C:\Users\Heath\AppData\Local\AutoControl\TabThumbs_2020.12.7.0.exe
  • (2020-12-09) Азамат-Гери Келеметов: Hello @AutoControl Shortcut team. I just wanna say great thanks for this cool extension. I don't know why the Google team doesn't let the user edit shortcuts. It was really displeasing that I can't use the Ctrl+Tab hotkey for switching to the previous tab, because I really used to it in Opera. I absolutely pleased that I have found this cool extension. 5 stars from me - regret that I can't give you 100.
  • (2020-12-07) Taruna Prasetya: Since Chrome lack shortcut manager, this extension is exactly what I needed!
  • (2020-11-12) 方先生: Effective in new tab
  • (2020-10-29) Eduardo Mior: Muito util, usei para desativar o botão F7 do chrome fução do caret browsing
  • (2020-10-26) Take 5: I absolutely LOVED this until it stopped working about a week ago (October 20th 2020). Seems to send wrong keys after Chrome is open a while. Have to restart chrome to get it to work again for the right keys. Anyone else having issues?
  • (2020-10-13) Станислав: Нет поддержки macOS
  • (2020-09-22) Michelle Le: it made some keyboard shortcuts easier because it was in a less awkward position than the original shortcut
  • (2020-09-21) Konstantin Rubikoff: Очень мощное приложение! куча возможностей и вариантов! Советую опытным пользователям!
  • (2020-09-21) Braam Zietsman: Absolutely love it. Been looking for this for a long time. Could we not do such a thing for Windows? (tongue in cheeck but a bit serious too)
  • (2020-09-20) Андрей Шабаев-Маркин: Не работает на мак, хотя устанавливается.
  • (2020-09-17) Xaoo BBX: For some reason it stopped working for me. I have antivirus disabled and didn't change anything in windows defender. Tried to reinstall but component is not being installed even if it says it is. Folder Local/AutoControll contains only .manifest without an .exe file. Tried multiple times. Doesnt work.
  • (2020-09-16) barbudo 2005: The new feature of sections is fantastic. Bravo!!! A question: If I delete a section the actions inside also delete?
  • (2020-09-12) Shy Vaporeon: Great extention. Really powerful, really useful, easy to set up. thanks.
  • (2020-09-10) Master Mind: I would like to see duplicate aciton in somewhere next or in between "disable" and "delete" thank you!
  • (2020-08-31) Projeto eXcript: Very very good work!!
  • (2020-08-19) leo: Is there any alternatives for this extension for MAC? Or will there be an MAC release upcoming?
  • (2020-08-18) Peter Bremer: This extension installs a stand-alone application on your system (inside C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\AutoControl) which is identified by several anti-virus as malware. Even though the developers keep saying these are false positives, the number of detections are increasing. AutoCtrl_2020.6.29.0.exe: 2 detections (https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/706c7a6f2ba412b6245d2a488b8ea7691ed31da41e3f3fe80d43e17ad1a4c260/detection), AutoCtrl_2020.8.1.0.exe: 5 detections (https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/62578a59fb07e91873c505bc39e5049a1a0bba7b9a024467344fc8a55b662964/detection), AutoControlZero.exe: 6 detections (https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/9fcafcd6d615c6dc65389ad0bc81073fa5d8fa02f1d3e5d27b93212a112cd449/detection). So it's the developer's word against the verdict of anti-virus scanners. Make of that what you want, I would prefer to stay on the safe side.
  • (2020-08-18) Onur: You guys amazing!!!
  • (2020-08-14) norio norio: Awesome! Working great for me. Switches tab (f7 Prev tab\\ f8 Next tab ) perfectly despite accidently focusing in text fields. Its became wery comfortable with this.
  • (2020-08-11) Thomas Kail: Amazing app, it helped me a lot in setting keyboard shortcuts for some of the apps such as notion.so, fantastic!
  • (2020-08-04) Daniel Braun: Finally Alt-Tab works the way it should. Thank you thank you thank you!!
  • (2020-08-01) Tin Zi: This is a life saving app for me, if there is a app i can't live with out, this is it. Why? It saves my hand/arm/health because i use this app to remap my mouse buttons to keyboard and vise versa.
  • (2020-07-30) Fernando Lazzari: Shortcut option to close tabs does not work in anonymous browsing
  • (2020-07-20) Sandro Masselier: Thank you so much for this amazing app! I finally was able to recreate the Windows Task-Switching behavior in the Webbrowser. Just using Ctrl instead of Alt. This should be the default behavior (or at least an option) in every Webbrowser, it makes so much more sense since this functionality is available on every major OS and has been proven to be very useful. Tabbing from the start to the end of the tab list is just no comparison. Thank you again and have a wonderful day.
  • (2020-07-11) Choku: Awesome extension! Two issues: 1. When activated with the right click the Edge right-click menu randomly pops up; 2. The whole extension sometimes is disabled randomly and has to be re-activated from the "emergency repair" option. Keep it up guys!
  • (2020-07-09) peter quitzgard: Very good, it has so many options and it's well documented!
  • (2020-07-06) David Pelech: Hi i really like this extension, i use it every day, but since this comes with a native component that records every keypress to look for the trigger one, i am concerned if you don't have access to all my keystrokes and don't log them. Please provide solid proof that you don't log user keypresses, for example the github page for this project so i can look into the code, or some other solid proof. as i said this extension is super cool, but i haven't found a single statement on your website that you explicitely don't log user keypresses with your "native component" EDIT: thanks for responding, now i understand. i changed my rating to 5 stars. This extention is so good.
  • (2020-07-03) 付超然: Great software, I like it. Powerful customization function, in any page shortcut keys can respond normally. Even when I use other applications, I can fully control the browser through the global shortcut, which was previously impossible to achieve. It has helped me too much, and I hope it can help more people. I'm very surprised. Thank you!
  • (2020-04-12) Sébastien Katana: Cette extension est un must have ! Je ragais sur Brave de ne pas pouvoir scroller tous les onglets avec clique droit/Scroll Up Scroll down. Avec cette extension aucun soucis ! Mille merci au créateur :)
  • (2020-04-07) Stéphane F.: J'enrage à chaque fois que je ferme accidentellement un onglet avec Ctrl+W, au lieu de couper ou copier un texte que je viens de taper dans une page. Cette extension permet de désactiver un tel raccourci, en le (re)créant dans son interface, sans action en face. Précision utile car je n'ai trouvé aucune doc qui l'indique précisément.
  • (2020-04-04) Weegloogi: I kinda doubted it at the start, because my antivirus flagged the native component as dangerous, but it is completely safe. It works great.
  • (2020-04-03) Saleh Khalil: The best extension ever
  • (2020-04-02) Beni Falk: This extension is awesome.. Due to the Coronavirus epidemic I need to connect from home to my work computer via RDP. I use keyboard shortcuts a lot in my work and in particular Ctrl-W and Alt-F4 which, until I found this extension, would close the connection / close Chrome altogether which was extremely annoying. Now i can disable these shortcuts or even send them to the remote computer without having my local browser catch them and act on them. Besides pure functionality, the extension's visual interface is also outstanding (it took me a while to get used to it, though).
  • (2020-03-30) Slava Lishnevsky: Excellent extension! Previously I used Shortkeys extension, which was free and they sell it. You cant even compare these two. This one is far more superior in functionality and behaviour, works on every page (I mean even Chrome settings and configuration pages, new tab, chrome web store, extensions page etc...), very easy to define keys... I dont want to list all the cons of this extension because it will take forever :) Simply put, this one goes straight on the top pedestal. With this extension you can completely overwrite Chrome behaviour as you like, use keys you like, this one extension practically replaces dozens of single function extensions. Excellent work. Thank you!
  • (2020-03-29) אליאב לוסקי: great!!!
  • (2020-03-27) Greg: This is brilliant. Exactly what I was looking for and has a perfect interface. Loving it so far. Keep up the good work.
  • (2020-03-25) Agustín Patrucco: Funciona perfecto, solo hay que saber bien cómo usarlo. Excelente extensión para crear nuevos atajos.
  • (2020-03-21) Compared to Shortkeys which is not free anymore I would definitely go with this one, not only because it's free, but also because it is far more superior in functionality. Shortkey extension doesn't work on blank page, on chrome extensions page, on chrome settings page... while this one works everywhere, even on system level due to that tiny component that talks to the extension from OS level. Good job guys.
  • (2020-03-14) Scot Ranney: When the "native component" is flagged by my virus software as having malware and trojans I'm pretty sure it's not safe no matter what kind of words are on the download page. Install this stuff at your own risk.
  • (2020-02-24) Derix: I'd like it if a keybind would still activate when a key that's not part of it is being held down

I think it's a pain to add a website shortcut in Chrome to my desktop by first clicking the three dots with mouse, then going down to More Tools, then to Create Shortcut. Can your program automate this process by using a keyboard shortcut? If so, what would be the proper format for doing that? Thanks

Do you have such an opportunity in AutoControl extension? If no - I think it is a nice feature to develop. Because in 90% of cases you find the answer in one of the 3 links on top of search results. Look forward to hearing from you. I appreciate your work. With Best regards Azamat.

  • (2020-12-08, v:2020.11.12) Lain inVerse: How to scroll to the top or bottom of the page?
    Interface proposes to enter some "amount" which is a number, but it isn't clear number of what (separate minimum scrolls?) and it doesn't seem to accept too large numbers. In most cases entering something larger than 2 digits ends in no scroll at all or smaller distance. 0 doesn't provide any scroll either and can't be set in the first place and negative value cause scroll in the opposite direction. Both are kinda expected even though I thought these might be treated as special value for "scroll as far as possible". One of the most common example is scrolling to the top of the page on Reddit after scrolling multiple pages down. It generates very long page and I haven't figured a value which would consistently bring me to the top.
  • (2020-12-07, v:2020.11.12) Lain inVerse: Close Tab action triggered by gesture closes active tab in focused window instead of one under cursor
    I have 2 monitors and at least 2 browser windows open at all times with multiple tabs in each. Before this extension I've used miniGestures [Reloaded] and while it didn't work on protected tabs it always closed tab on which I performed gesture instead of the active one in the focused window at the moment. I quite often read one without clicking on it since Chrome allows to scroll it just fine without doing so. Unfortunately I can't reproduce this behavior with this extension and it always closes actual active tab in focused window. I've tried to use "Close Tabs" action instead, but I haven't found a way to make it target tab on which I performed the gesture , nor I found a way to switch window focus before using Close Tab action.

    Hi, I installed your extension based on it's first listed feature of being able to change or disable a native chrome shortcut. For the life of me I cannot figure out how to disable a built-in chrome shortcut nor find info on your page about the ability to do so. Can you PLEASE tell me how to disable a built-in chrome shortcut? Specifically, I want to disable Chrome's new enable/disable carat browsing feature which is the 'F7' key with no modifier. I use F7 via other software to lower the volume on my PC and can no longer lower my volume when Chrome is running due to them adding the F7 shortcut recently. Thank you in advance.

  • (2020-09-22, v:2020.9.14) Pierfrancesco Barbieri: CTRL+TAB system
    There are basically three suggestions that I would like to give you to improve your extension, specifically regarding the CTRL+TAB system, all of them come from Firefox where this system is integrated into the browser and provides a better user experience in this respect. 1st Tip: Opening menus even when not needed. By reading the guide at the link https://www.autocontrol.app/switch-to-last-used-tab-in-chrome and following step 3 step by step you can set CTRL+TAB in a similar way to Firefox, the only the difference is that the menu appears even when you simply want to alternate between two tabs and then release CTRL quickly after pressing CTRL+TAB. The menu should appear only if after pressing CTRL+TAB the CTRL key is still pressed for a few fractions of a second (hold down: 0.2 secs) and remain active as long as it is pressed. Otherwise it should alternate between the two tabs without appearing. 2nd Hint: CTRL+W and marked item. As the title suggests, while scrolling through the tabs in the menu, CTRL+W closes the current tab and not the one marked, so you are forced to select the tab and then close it. This often causes the loss of your tabs that you were alternating and therefore you are forced to reposition them. 3rd Tip: Open link in new tab. When you open a link in a new tab, this link is not the last used tab, so CTRL+TAB continues to switch between the two tabs used. We are therefore forced to select the new tab manually, this is uncomfortable because we often open the link in a new tab to take a look without losing what we were doing in the previous one, this is advantageous because once the open link is closed it is possible return to alternate the two tabs we were using. That's it, congratulations on the extension. I sincerely hope you will extend support to Linux as well.

    When I go into the extension, the disable all shortcuts and enable all shortcuts buttons are no longer there. Adding new shortcuts is a problem since I now have to disable and enable them one by one now, and I usually need to disable or enable several at one time so that feature was extremely useful to me. I was wondering is this a bug, or did you guys get rid of the feature for some reason?

  • (2020-09-01, v:2020.8.3) Imre Ipolyi: Tab list ignores clicks after saving and restoring settings in a dat file
    It worked without fail before I saved and restored AutoControl settings. I looked into the hidden details of the restored list of actions (both in my browser and in the dat file) and it seems to look exactly like it was before save/restore (including other hotkeys I remapped, F12, Ctrl+Tab etc). The action I linked to a custom menu button is on the list and it seems to be the way I made it. I made a custom menu named "Oldest tabs not yet unloaded" that contains a tab list named "Oldest tabs not yet unloaded" so it's easy to link it to a button or hotkeys. The sort&filter details are still in the definition. No matter whether I open this tab list by key or button, when I click an item on that tab list it doesn't activate any tab (but it did before save/restore). The menu is still correctly populated by a list of tabs but is closed as soon as I click anywhere on it just like when I click outside of the menu. Restarting the browser didn't help. After browser restart I got a warning that the native component of AutoControl needs to be installed (but it was installed before restart). I redownloaded and ran Native-Component.exe and it confirmed that it's already installed. I also tried solving this by deleting the remap from the actions list and redefining the list's activation both by hotkeys and by menu button. Didn't delete the menu button, just the entry from the action list that was linked to the button. Win 8.1, Brave Version 1.13.82 Chromium: 85.0.4183.83 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • (2020-08-29, v:2020.8.3) Imre Ipolyi: Unload memory used by a tab by selecting it from a menu in MRU order.
    Hi. The reason why I'm doing this is that I don't want to unload the oldest used tab from memory blindly selecting it as described here https://www.autocontrol.app/release-ram-without-closing-tabs I want to see a list of tabs and select which one I wanna unload. I created a menu button that opens a list sorted and filtered as in step 1 and step 2 here https://www.autocontrol.app/release-ram-without-closing-tabs but not including step 3 (slice 1 to 1) so I can see the not yet unloaded tab list in ascending use order. But I couldn't make it work to unload a tab I click on that menu list, no matter whether I link actions in the order "unload tabs">>"open menu" or "open menu">>"unload tabs". Is it possible to do what I want?

  • (2020-08-17, v:2020.8.3) Amy W.: Ran into a few questions
    Hi, I was hoping you could help with a couple things. I followed the steps in part 3 of this page https://www.autocontrol.app/switch-to-last-used-tab-in-chrome to create a tab list with thumbnail previews, and ran into a couple of issues. 1. Biggest problem is that the menu doesn't scroll. It shows 40 tabs and that's it... In Windows alt-tab, you can keep scrolling once you get past what's visible in the window, and it would be great to be able to do that here as well. 2. Would also be really nice to be able to use the arrow keys to change the item mark (again, like the Windows alt-tab) rather than the arrow keys always starting from the bottom right of the menu. 3. Unrelated to the ctrl-tab menu--I was also trying to set up a shortcut to select the current tab and one or more to the right. Finally got the current tab selected as well (instead of *just* the one on the right), but I can't figure out how to make it so I can keep pressing right arrow and adding tabs to selection. (Screenshot here: https://imgur.com/a/FvIifTu) Any help you can give is much appreciated!

    I can't seem to find any option or mention of how to disable chrome's native shortcuts within the extension. It looks like I can overwrite the native shortcuts, but I want the shortcut to not affect chrome at all.
