    Question HTML Link to chrome://settings/languages

    Hi, I want to set a link to the languages settings (where the spell check settings are) so the user can get there easily (rather than explain how to navigate there or type the URL in), but using href="chrome://settings/languages" Chrome just goes to "about:blank". Any ideas?

    It's a security issue, non chrome pages can't open chrome links. However, there is a workaround, you can open a new tab and direct it to the chrome page with a little jscript:

    Code:
    <a href="#" onclick="chrome.tabs.create({url:'chrome://settings/languages'});">Chrome Language Settings</a>
