Learn How To Uninstall and Install Google Chrome On Your Windows 10 Computer With These Simple Steps
Google Chrome is a great browser and I have been using it for years. If you are a millennial or a boomer, then you probably remember a time where the Internet Explorer was our go-to but I am definitely glad that time is over. Chrome is not only easy to use, but it offers a ton of extensions that increase the functionality of your basic browser without being a detriment to your browsing experience. So, why not learn how to install Google Chrome today? If you want to remove it for some reason, later on, no need to worry. I will teach how to uninstall Google Chrome as well.
If you got a new computer or just installed Windows 10, you won’t have Chrome installed by default. No need to worry, because the process is very easy and definitely not a hassle. I am going to share with you both how to install the browser, and how to uninstall it as well. Just follow these instructions, and you will be good to go.
How to Install Chrome on Windows 10
Step 1 – Just open whatever browser you have available (I am using Microsoft Edge to show you the steps) and go to https://www.google.com/chrome/. This is what the page will show. Click on Download Chrome.
Step 2 – The ChromeSetup.exe file will be downloaded; depending on your browser it will either appear at the bottom, or at the top of the screen like mine is. Once the download is complete, click Open file to start the installation.
Step 3 – A UAC prompt will open like this and will ask you, ‘Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?’. Click Yes to start the installation.
Step 4 – This is what you will see, as soon as installation starts.
Step 5 – When the installation is complete, Google Chrome will automatically start, and an icon will be added to your desktop.
So, this is how you install Google Chrome. Easy, wasn't it? Enjoy your new browser!
Uninstalling Chrome in Windows 10
Don't like the new browser? No, worries. You can uninstall Google Chrome even more easily! Just follow these simple steps.
Step 1 – Click on the Start menu or the Windows button at the bottom of your screen and type Uninstall in the search box. Open the Add or remove programs option.
Step 2 – The following screen will appear. Under Apps & features, in the search bar, type Chrome.
Step 3 – When the Google Chrome option appears, simply click on Uninstall.
Step 4 – This will give another uninstall prompt. Click Uninstall.
Step 5 – Once again a UAC prompt will appear asking you, ‘Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device?’. Click Yes.
Step 6 – Once more, you will be asked if you want to Uninstall Chrome and you can check the ‘Also delete your browsing data' box if you want. This will remove your bookmarks and other information, as well. If you don’t want this to be removed permanently, I suggest not checking this option.
Step 7 – A survey will open on your default browser, asking about why you uninstalled chrome. You can choose to fill it or just ignore it.
Your Chrome has now been successfully uninstalled on your Windows 10 computer.
