Note: Advice in this article will only work for JxBrowser 6. See the corresponding article for JxBrowser 7 here.

In Chromium, there are two types of shortcuts. The shortcuts that are supported by the Chromium application and shortcuts that are supported by the Blink engine. JxBrowser supports only the second type of shortcuts because it does not integrate the Chromium application UI.

For example, JxBrowser supports shortcuts related to the editor like Ctrl+A/⌘+A, Ctrl+C/⌘+C, and Ctrl+X/⌘+X. JxBrowser does not support Ctrl+P/⌘+P and Ctrl+F/⌘+F shortcuts as they are provided by the Chromium application UI.

Processing unsupported shortcuts

If you need to process an unsupported shortcut such as Ctrl+P/⌘+P, you can do it manually by registering the input listener like in the following sample:

import static java.awt.event.KeyEvent.KEY_RELEASED;

import com.teamdev.jxbrowser.chromium.Browser;
import com.teamdev.jxbrowser.chromium.InputEventsHandler;
import com.teamdev.jxbrowser.chromium.swing.BrowserView;
import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import java.awt.event.KeyEvent;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.WindowConstants;

public class ShortcutsSample {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        final Browser browser = new Browser();
        BrowserView view = new BrowserView(browser);

        JFrame frame = new JFrame();
        frame.add(view, BorderLayout.CENTER);
        frame.setSize(700, 500);

        view.setKeyEventsHandler(new InputEventsHandler<KeyEvent>() {
            public boolean handle(KeyEvent event) {
                if (event.isControlDown() && event.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.VK_P
                        && event.getID() == KEY_RELEASED) {
                return false;
