This keybinding is very irritating because it is very close to the copy-command Ctrl+C. Partially, the problem can be explained by my keyboard layout Dvorak such that the browser may consider the keybinds as CTRL+I.

How can you disable the CTRL+SHIFT+C binding in Google Chrome?

    There are things of Google Chrome which make me prefer it over Firefox, such as the fact that it outperforms it and the "Duplicate" feature for the tab which I couldn't live without, however some things are just a hassle to deal with, such as this and the unrelocatable notifications. I think you'll need an extension for that. – kos Jul 14 '15 at 7:39

    Just right-click the tab you want to duplicate and select "Duplicate" from the drop-down menu – kos Jul 14 '15 at 7:42

  • I don't think so, it should be the same. Also I can't even find an extension to change the default shortcuts. I suggest you to try your luck here: chrome.google.com/webstore/search/shortcut?_category=extensions – kos Jul 14 '15 at 7:50

I was able to successfully override the Ctrl+Shift+C shortcut by using the Shortcut Manager plugin and creating a new shortcut for the key combination.

You can then reassign it to trigger a host of pre-configured actions, or any javascript / bookmarklet code of your choosing. I don't really have any experience with javascript, so I can't really figure out how to make it act like Ctrl+C, but as far simply preventing it from bringing up the Developer Tools console, simply setting it to execute:


seems to work.


I since found that there is, in fact, a simple way to copy to the clipboard in javascript, so instead of setting Ctrl+Shift+C to an empty script, set it to:


or simply use Shortcut Manager's "Import Settings" feature and paste the following:

// ==UserScript==
// @ShortcutManager
// @name Override Ctrl+Shift+c
// @namespace FSBQ9ZTetyiG
// @key Ctrl+Shift+c
// @include *
// ==/UserScript==
  • Outstanding idea! Do you have any idea how to do this without a plugin? This would be the ultimate goal. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Aug 26 '15 at 19:56

    Unfortunately, no. As far as I could find, there doesn't seem to be any way of modifying the pre-configured key-bindings. There may be a way to do so via the developer version. – SamWN Aug 26 '15 at 20:09
  • l really would like to get a one-liner to make this change. I think it can be possible. Is it? – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Jun 21 '16 at 15:04
