You’ll soon be able to alter keyboard shortcuts on ChromeOS

After enabling the experimental flag, you can go to Settings > Devices > Keyboard > Show keyboard shortcuts. By clicking on Shortcuts, you can add new shortcuts (though they don’t really seem to work yet) or customize existing shortcuts. You will definitely be able to effectively remap shortcuts to your liking.

Kevin C. Tofel was the first to notice this change on Chromebooks, allowing you to view a version of the View Keyboard Shortcuts app (although he points out that creating custom his shortcuts still doesn’t work ). A very early iteration was published on the Chrome Story YouTube channel late last year, but now you can try it yourself.

When we see the full version of these customization options depends on how long ChromeOS 111 takes to move into the beta process and general rollout. The last stable channel update for ChromeOS came at the end of January, jumping to version 109.0.5414.

An eventual full release is a big deal and puts Chrome on par with other more flexible operating systems in this area. Beta users who leave the flag enabled, however, may be able to slowly see the full feature before it stabilizes.
