In this post about Google Chrome, I mentioned that there is no “Open File” function like in Firefox or other browsers.
But there’s actually a way to do it right from your toolbar. You need to use the file: URL scheme
In Google Chrome’s Toolbar, type “c:” and enter (or whatever letter that corresponds to your hard drive), it’s actually a shortcut that will open file:///C:/.
From there you can browse your folders and find your HTML page or whatever document you want to open with Google Chrome.
UPDATE: It turns out that there is actually a keyboard shortcut to open a file: Ctrl+O. I just found this on Google Chrome Help page, which lists all shortcuts available, more info here. But, well, you can still use the file URL sheme if you want to convince yourself that you’re a geek 🙂
