What would you like to do?
Shortcut to Chrome Inspect

Chrome has made the path to inspect devices more and more difficult. Now to open the inspect devices tab, as of April 2016 it's Menu > More Devices > Developer Tools > Menu > More Tools > Inspect Devices.

Fortunately there is an easy solution : we can use customize the search engine functionality to add a shortcut via the search bar.

  1. Right click on the search bar, click 'Edit Search Engines'.
  2. At the end of the list you can add a search engine. Name it chrome inspect with the keyword insp and URL : chrome://inspect/#devices.

Now to access "Inspect devices", you can do Ctrl + L, type insp and hit Enter.
