Regardless of whether you use Google Chrome or the Edge Chromium browser , both offer the same short URLs for certain functions. With these simple URL calls you can quickly switch to the most important browser settings.
The most well-known setting is the URL short form
edge: // settings
This will immediately bring up the Edge Chromium settings. On the Google Chrome browser you have to replace the word ” Edge ” with ” Chrome “, so the correct shortcut is then
