Are you experiencing issues with Google Chrome on your Mac? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Many Mac users have reported running into problems when trying to use Google Chrome.
Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to troubleshoot and fix common Chrome issues on your Mac.
Step 1: Update Your Operating System & Chrome Browser
The first step in fixing any issue with Google Chrome is making sure that all of your software is up-to-date. Apple frequently releases updates for macOS, while Google regularly updates its Chrome web browser. Outdated software can slow down your web browsing experience or even cause certain features to stop working altogether. To make sure both macOS and Google Chrome are running the latest version available, follow these steps:
Step 2: Clear Your Browser History & Cache Files
When trying to fix any kind of issue with a website or application such as Google Chrome, it’s often helpful to clear out any saved data that may be causing conflicts within your browser. To do this on a Mac computer, follow these steps:
Once you’ve done this, open up Google Chrome again and type chrome://settings/clearBrowserData into its address bar at the top of its window; then select ‘Advanced’ from here in order to access more options such as deleting cookies or cached images/files stored by websites that interfere within your browser – make sure all boxes are checked off here before clicking ‘Clear Data’ at bottom right corner of this window. After a few moments, all saved data should have been removed from both Safari and Google Chrome browsers on your Mac computer!
As far as cookies go, learning how to enable third party cookies on Mac in certain situations is something to consider. Especially in cases when you have to repeat certain things on your browser, such as typing login credentials.
Step 3: Disable Any Extensions & Plugins You May Have Installed
It’s possible that some extensions or plugins installed through either Safari or another third-party application could be the reason behind conflicts within your web browsing experience – particularly if they haven’t been updated recently or aren’t compatible with newer versions of macOS or Google Chrome itself. To check which extensions/plugins are active within your browser environment follow these steps:
Step 4: Restart Your Computer & Reopen All Applications
If none of these troubleshooting steps have yielded successful results thus far then it might be worth restarting both computer itself as well as applications currently being used therein order see if problem has been resolved when launching them back up again afterwards; simply save any unsaved work beforehand (if applicable) before shutting down machine via the icon located on the upper left side of the screen – wait a few seconds afterwards until computer has completely powered down before pressing button again so as to power it back up.
Once computer is fully booted up again, open up Safari followed by Google Chrome once more in order to see if any problems have been resolved within browser environment. If everything appears to be functioning correctly then problem should have been fixed without having to resort to any further measures.
