Google Docs keyboard shortcuts and the AdBlock menu

If typing in Google Docs and you press Ctrl+B to make something boldface, or you press Ctrl+F to open Chrome's text search box, but instead the AdBlock menu opens, it means a shortcut has been reassigned.  We're not sure how this happens, but it's easy to fix.

Remove a Keyboard Shortcut in Chrome:

  1. Go to chrome://extensions.
  2. Select Keyboard shortcuts.
  3. Find AdBlock in the list of extensions.
  4. Click the pencil icon to make an edit to the shortcut.
