Even though Google Chrome is one of the best web browsers out there, it can crash when a problem arises. Several problems can lead to it crashing on your Windows 10 computer. Luckily, there are many ways you can get Chrome working again.
Chrome constantly runs in the background, even if you close it by clicking on the X in the top right corner of the browser window. There are two ways in which you can completely shut Chrome down.
Once you your computer reboots, you can start Google Chrome once again. If the problem persists, then it's being caused by something else. Follow the steps below to resolve these problems.
Extensions are useful add-ons that extend the functionality of Google Chrome in many different ways. However, they can also cause trouble. Not all extensions are built well and many contain bugs. If Chrome keeps crashing or freezing, you should double-check all of your installed extensions and make sure none are the cause.
Taking these steps will allow you to determine whether a particular extension is causing the problems with your browser. Once you find the extension that is causing the problem, simply click on the Remove button, and it will no longer be a part of your browser. If the issue persists and Chrome keeps crashing, there are a few more things you can do.
Reinstalling a piece of software on Windows 10 will most likely immediately fix it. You can easily reinstall Google Chrome by following the steps below.
Once you are done with this process, your browser will most likely perform correctly and stop crashing. If not, there is one more thing you could do.
If Chrome is still crashing even after you have reinstalled it, the issue might be at the system level - caused by another program interfering with your browser. In this case, you should scan your computer for any malware.
If, after following all of these steps, you find that Google Chrome continues to crash, there may be a problem with your Windows installation, or another (non-malware) program that is interfering with Chrome working. Check to see if others have the same issue on the official Google support forums, and ask there for help.
