Switch text direction from ltr to rtl and vice versa in Google Chrome

Today, I accidentally found two keyboard shortcuts in Google Chrome to switch text direction in Address bar from rtl (Right to Left) to ltr (Left to Right) and ltr to rtl.

This quite simple and can be used as a prank on friend’s systems. 😉

Here you go:

  1. Open Google Chrome..
  2. Click on Address bar.
  3. Press [Right CTRL] + [Right Shift] and the text direction will become LTR.
  4. You can press [Left CTRL] + [Left Shift] keys together to switch it back to RTL.

I also noticed one thing. If you have Google Chrome window opened and you open another Chrome window, then it will not work in second window. This may be a bug.

Try this and have fun. 🙂
