Tips & tricks for Chrome

Get the most out of Chrome by trying some of our tips below.

1. Sign in to Google Chrome

When you sign in to the Chrome browser, you can save and sync things like your bookmarks, history, passwords, and other settings to your Google Account. Then, you can get to them on any device.

2. Make your own profile

You can have multiple people use Chrome on the same device, each with their own settings, bookmarks, and themes.

If you have different accounts, like work and personal, you can use Chrome profiles to keep your bookmarks, extensions, and settings separate.

3. Make Chrome yours with apps, extensions, and themes

Download and use apps and extensions, or personalize Chrome on your computer with a fun theme. You can find new apps, extensions, and themes on the Chrome Web Store.

  • Apps are programs that can be used within Chrome.
  • Extensions are extra features you can add to Chrome.
  • Themes appear around the border of the browser and show a background when you open a new tab.

4. Open a specific page, or continue where you left off

Set up Chrome to load your favorite page when you first open Chrome on your computer. Or, you can continue where you left off on the pages you had open the last time you used Chrome.

Learn how to set your startup pages.

5. Browse in private or delete your history

If you don’t want Google Chrome to save a record of what you visit and download, you can browse the web privately in Incognito mode. You can also delete your history, cookies, and other information: remove all of it, or just some from a specific period of time.

Learn how to use Incognito mode and delete your information.
