You can find the installed version of the Chrome browser on your Windows desktop by following the instructions below:

  1. Launch Chrome.
  2. Click on the 3 Vertical Dots. in the upper right corner of the Chrome browser.
  3. Scroll down to and Hover over the Help option, then click on About Google Chrome in the new menu that opens.
  4. A new window appears that provides information about the browser.

Chrome browser gets updated automatically as a background process. You need to close the Chrome browser and launch it again. This should allow the browser engine to fetch the latest updates.

If there is a pending update for the Chrome browser, you will get a pending icon on the browser three dots. The color of the icon will depend upon the time period for which the update has been pending.

  • If the pending update was released less than 2 days ago, you will see Green dots.
  • If the pending update was released about 4 days ago, you will see Yellow dots.
  • If the pending update was released at least a week ago, you will see Red dots.

We do suggest keeping the Chrome browser updated at all times to resolve security vulnerabilities.
