#9 How to check your current version of Chrome!

Hi ya!


Today, we’ll be talking about Chrome!
When you start using Chrome, you get a message that pops up saying  “Your version of Chrome has been updated.”  You might be asking yourself, “Version of Chrome has been updated? What does it mean by updated? What version am I on right now?”


What it means by “updated” is that Google updates its browser, Chrome, periodically to make sure that you’re protected by the latest security updates.


Now, there are many ways to check your version of Chrome:


  • Click the three horizontal line that looks like this: , select “About Google Chrome,” and the current version is shown beneath “Google Chrome.”
  • Type in the omnibox/address bar chrome://version
  • Again, type in the omnibox chrome://chrome
  • Or, you could use this great website right here: http://whatversion.net/chrome/


When you check your version of Chrome, it should look like this:

Those are the methods that I know of. If there are any that I missed, let me know in the comment section!


To review:
To me, the easiest way to check your current version of Chrome is:
  • Type in the omnibox chrome://version
But, there are multiple ways to check your version, as stated above.
