Make Google Maps load faster
If Google Maps loads slowly, here are a few things you can try.
- Restart your computer and browser: Often, Google Maps will load more quickly after you restart your computer or browser, like Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer.
- Update your computer and browser: Make sure that your computer and browser meet the Maps system requirements. If you see a "Lite mode" link in the bottom right corner of the map, you should try updating your computer's operating system or browser.
- Use Lite mode: If you're using Google Maps and it seems slow, try switching to Lite Mode.
- Install the latest version of DirectX on Windows: Installing the latest version of DirectX, a software that improves visuals on your computer, could help Maps load more quickly. To install DirectX, visit Microsoft support.
