Knowing how to update Google Chrome is wise because Google updates its Chrome web browser regularly.
Chrome is available for use on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10), Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems, and for Android and i OS mobile operating systems. According to Stat Counter Global Stats, Google Chrome is the world’s most widely used web browser.
No option exists to "re-check" for browser installs, AFAIK.
Even Web Matrix saw my Chrome install again after this.
It was also suggested that using a registry cleaner (CCleaner is a good one), may help with some of the icon problems, but this had no impact on this situation for me.
When Chrome relaunches, the About window will inform you that Google Chrome is up to date.
For some reason, I booted up my work computer today, like I always do, and the batch file I threw in the startup folder to quickly open up all of my applications told me that "doesn't exist".
The icon for Chrome that I have pinned to my taskbar shows the Windows "unrecognized file" icon, as shown here (between the VLC and VNCScan icons): And the shortcut on my desktop, as well (visible title "COO Landin..."): Also, if I were to click the shortcut on the desktop it says "application not found" BUT if I click the one pinned to the taskbar, Chrome opens right up.
Also, my Web Matrix 3 application, no longer recognizes Chrome as one of the 5 browsers I have installed, so the quick launch option from the Web Matrix IDE no longer shows Chrome (this is particularly annoying, as now, the quickest way to open up my site-in-development in Chrome from the IDE is to quick launch it from another browser and copy the URL or just type it in Chrome every time).
Personalization and customization options include Chrome themes, apps and extensions.
Once downloaded and installed, a notification will display that Chrome is Nearly up-to-date! To complete the update, click the Relaunch button to relaunch the web browser application.
On Desktop On i Phone On Android Community Q&A This wiki How teaches you how to update the Google Chrome browser on your computer and mobile devices.
While Google Chrome updates typically install themselves, you can manually trigger an update on a mobile device by using your mobile device's app store, or on a computer by visiting the "About Google Chrome" page.
Is there anything I can do to get it to "check again" or should I expect that an update or something re-structured/re-named the folders in which Chrome resides?
