During rare situations which may include, browser crashes, excessively slow performance, excessive clutter from add-ons and extensions or possible because of issues with viewing the content of certain web pages, it may be necessary to reset Google Chrome back to it’s default settings. Performing a reset is usually not necessary for most situations, since other less extreme measures may provide the same benefit minus the need to reconfigure the web browser afterwards. This tutorial will show you how to reset Google Chrome when it’s needed.


To reset Google Chrome back to it’s default state, begin by:

  1. Opening Google Chrome and then clicking on the “Options Menu” in the upper right corner of the browser window.




















  1. Next, click on the “Settings’ option in the context menu that appears.






















  1. Next, click on “Show Advanced Settings” down at the bottom of the window.

































  1. Next, click on the “Reset Browser Settings’ option at the bottom of the page.




























  1. Next, uncheck the “Help Make Google Chrome Better By Reporting The Current Settings” option, unless you don’t mind allowing Google access to this information.
  2. Next, click on “Reset”.











  1. Afterwards, close the settings window and you’re done. Keep in mind that the reset has set the browser back to it’s default settings which includes, resetting your homepage, disabling extensions and also removing website autofill form data and passwords. So all of that configuration data will need to be re entered if you needed it.
