Updating Your Browser - Chrome

Updating Chrome Web Browser

Unless you have specifically disabled it Chrome will check for updates every couple of hours and automatically update itself, but here's how to manually tell Chrome to update itself.

  1. Click the "Customize and Control" button

    Click on the "Customize" menu In the top-right corner of the Chrome window. It looks like three little black dots on top of each other.

  4. Chrome will automatically check for updates

    As soon as you open the "About" screen for Chrome, it will automatically start to check if there are any updates available for your copy of Chrome. If there are updates available it will start to download them. You don't need to do anything to start this process.

    The 'About Chrome' dialog - the update section is already checking for updates

    Chrome tells you that it's "Checking for updates..." while it checks for a newer version.

  5. If Chrome finds updates, click "Relaunch" to install them

    If Chrome finds updates, it will automatically download and install them. Once this is done you need to click the Relaunch button to finish this process. Clicking it will restart Chrome. Chrome should remember which websites you have open and reopen them when it starts up again.

Congratulations, you have now ensured that your copy of Chrome is up to date!
