Export these chrome://extensions/shortcuts ??
0
Is it possible to export these settings?

The list is quite long for many extensions (with multiple keyboard shortcuts each).

Since it is not possible to take a (scrolling) screenshot of this list, how can I come up with a list of the (non-empty) keyboard shortcuts.

Showing all the keyboard shortcuts that are not set (empty) is a big waste of screen estate.
Is there a way to show/export only the ones actually set?

Hi TTLstar!
 
The only way I know is to retrieve a list of them from the Preferences file that Chrome saves. There's a lot of stuff in there, but if you search for commands you will find the list (in the following screenshot I have prettified the file formatting, you'll see in reality it is shown in a single line):
 
 
There are some disadvantages:
  1. The extension name is not shown, instead of that there's the ID.
  2. The file is written in the JSON language, and so it is hard to read for humans if you don't have practice. Also, the fact that it is saved as a single line makes it even harder to read. If you prettify it with an external program you'll end up with something like what I showed in my screenshot, which is easier to read.
So in the end I think it's easier to take a lot of screenshots hehe.
 
Cheers :-)

Thanks for your competent and quick answer.
I think I will not dive into preference files ....

Maybe somebody can write an extension that provides a nice list of the definitions.

Google could also provide a "defined shortcut only" view of the relevant shortcuts only instead of wasting so much space for the empty shortcuts in the list that cannot be (scroll) captured (I will report this).

Is there a way to sync the shortcuts for extensions between machines?
I have the extensions itself synced between a Windows Chrome and a Chrome-OS machine (works), but the shortcuts apparently don't sync ??

Hmmm... that's weird, in theory these shortcuts should sync between devices, I just tested it.

Could you verify whether you've allowed to sync your settings in chrome://settings/syncSetup/advanced? (you can also go to that settings screen by going to the Chrome menu > Settings > Sync and Google services > Manage what you sync).

In case the "settings" switch is enabled there, are there any other switches you might be missing? Otherwise, it sounds like it might be a bug.

Cheers :-)

Hi Adrià (slightly off topic)
I am quite sure, that I recently came across a simple way to "shoot" long websites in Chrome by typing a simple command in the address bar.
It flawlessly created an image in a new tab up to 80.000 pixels long (sufficient for very long threads or lists) while most extensions and tricks fail above 20.000 pixels or divide the image.
I was stunned how easy this was, but unfortunately cannot find the trick again. I am afraid, I forgot to note it. I assume, I read it on reddit but cannot find it again there also.

Do you have an idea, what this trick was all about?
Maybe it also allows to grab the whole keyboard shortcut list without any fuzz in one shot ...

I will check the sync between Windows Chrome and my Chrome-OS box in more detail soon ...
All switches in chrome://settings/syncSetup/advanced are ON.

By the way I found another option:
Copied the chrome://extensions/shortcuts list as text into Word and deleted all the lines with the empty shortcuts ....

By "shooting" the image do you mean sending the URL to another Chrome instance? In that case I guess you're talking about data: urls. Those URLs contain the data in the URL itself instead of pointing to a server from which to download the data.

For instance, the following URLs:
  • data:text/html,<b>Hello world</b>
  • data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAQAQMAAAAlPW0iAAAABlBMVEUAAAD///+l2Z/dAAAAM0lEQVR4nGP4/5/h/1+G/58ZDrAz3D/McH8yw83NDDeNGe4Ug9C9zwz3gVLMDA/A6P9/AFGGFyjOXZtQAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC
If the switches are on, it should definitely work. Let me know if they don't sync correctly! As I said we might have found a bug in Chrome which would need to be fixed.

Cheers :-)

Sync Test:
I tested with this simple extension: 

Extension On/Off    syncs
the position of the extension icon in the extensions bar section    syncs
the (one only) option    syncs
the (one only)   keyboard shortcut for the extension      DOES NOT sync

Amazing Screen Shooting Script:

No, it was type of a scripting language line (only one).
I fired it to capture:
as a test and it flawlessly created an image of the very long thread into a new tab to the right, I could then store easily. I was stunned, because I had tinkered around to capture very, very long lists from amazon music recently (they provide no export options at all) without much success and do not like all the scrolling screenshot tools requiring accounts and subscriptions ...

... there are really useful extensions, providing dozens of shortcuts.
For example:
and

The latter at least allows to export and import the settings (did not try yet).
Maybe experts can understand something by examining the export file ...

It would be really tedious, having to assign all of them on multiple machines / OS by hand.
Hope, that Google syncs them somehow or fixes this  ...
