There are several shortcuts in Street View that you might not know of. I discovered them by accident and I am glad I did. Just in case my mouse doesn’t work and I want to move around in the Google Maps Street view. (Mind that the shortcuts are only tested in Firefox on Windows)
I usually use Alt + D to set the cursor to the address bar in Firefox (and Ctrl + E to get it over to the Search bar). That explains the accident that helped me find the shortcuts. Now, sometimes the shortcuts wouldn’t work, which I do not have any explanation for. But I know how to get around it.
- Make sure you are using Firefox on Windows
- Make sure you are viewing Google Maps in Street view
- Move around by doubleclicking a circle or a rectangle somewhere in the image
- Go ahead and try the shortcuts now
Do you know of any other shortcuts in Google Maps?
Update: Apparently, you do not need to hit Alt with the letter. Just use the letters for navigating around in the street view.
