Google Chrome is the best web browser, in my opinion. It’s by far better than Internet Explorer and possibly Firefox. I heard other folks claiming that Firefox is the best browser. I’m not going to argue that.

This blog post isn’t going to pick a winner or loser between Chrome and Firefox. They’re both excellent web browsers. However, Chrome is better, in my opinion.

For those using Chrome as their default browser, follow the step below to learn how to reset Google Chrome quickly.

Chrome users can always reset their browser by going to Settings –> Show advanced settings and clicking the Reset settings button. That’s the same process for resetting Google Chrome.

This will reset your startup page, new tab page, search engine, and pinned tabs. It will also disable all extensions and precise temporary data like cookies. However, your bookmarks, history, and saved passwords will not be cleared.

A quick way to reset Google Chrome is by copying the line below, pasting it into your browser’s box, and pressing the Enter key.


Doing the above step takes you directly to the Reset settings button. This is a great way to reset Google chrome, especially when you’re having browser issues.

So, if you’re having issues like spyware or unknown extensions installed in your browser, you should reset Chrome. Resetting Chrome deletes temporary cookies, disabling all extensions, and more. This is the quickest way to fix common issues with Chrome.

I hope this helps, and please come back soon.
