    How to install Google Chrome

    May 3rd, 2021

    Install Chrome on Windows

    1. Download the installation file.
    2. If prompted, click Run or Save.
    3. If you chose Save, double-click the download to start installing.
    4. Start Chrome:
      • Windows 7: A Chrome window opens once everything is done.
      • Windows 8 & 8.1: A welcome dialog appears. Click Next to select your default browser.
      • Windows 10: A Chrome window opens after everything is done. You can make Chrome your default browser.

    If you've used a different browser, like Internet Explorer or Safari, you can import your settings into Chrome.


    If you're having problems downloading Chrome on your Windows computer, you can try the alternate link below to download Chrome on a different computer.

    1. On a computer connected to the Internet, download the alternate Chrome installer.
    2. Move the file to the computer where you want to install Chrome.
    3. Open the file, and follow the onscreen instructions to install.

    If you land on the regular download page, that’s normal. Even though the installers look similar, a special tag tells us which one is best for you.

    Once you download the file, you can send it to another computer.

    1. Download the installation file.
    2. Open the file called "googlechrome.dmg."
