A shortcut to open a new tab next to the current one
By default, Chrome will only open a new tab at the very end of the row of tabs, which isn’t always what you want. This is a quick shortcut to open a new tab to the right of the one you’re currently viewing.
You can either use the button to the right of the address bar, or a configurable keyboard shortcut. The default keyboard shortcut is:
• For Windows & Linux: Alt + T
• For macOS: Ctrl + T
You can change this shortcut by going to chrome://extensions and clicking the "Keyboard shortcuts" link at the bottom of the page.
