Google updates the popular Chrome browser very frequently and add many features in the latest versions. You may like some of the new features while you mayn’t like few things. For example, all screens are now modified to fit in to Google’s Material Design format. Whenever you have problems, the first step you need to do is to check the version of your browser. You need the version number to understand the features updated in the latest version. Also you need to provide the Chrome version when posting questions in Chrome product forum for getting support.
5 Ways to Check Version of Your Google Chrome
Here are the three ways to find what version you are using:
- Use chrome://version command
- Using chrome://settings/help command
- Check version through menu
- Use chrome://system URL
- Check version using chrome://supervised-user-internals URL
1. Use chrome://version Command
This is an easiest way to check the version without running automatic update.
2. Use chrome://settings/help Command
The second way to find the version number is to enter chrome://settings/help in the address bar and hit enter. The issue with this method is that Chrome will automatically check for updates.
3. Using Chrome Menu
Instead of URL commands, you can also use menu path to find the version. Click on the three dots button shown on the top right corner of your browser. Then go to “Help > About Google Chrome” menu.
This will essentially go the same chrome://settings/help URL and show you the Chrome version as shown in the method 2.
4. Use chrome://system URL
You can also use the system diagnostic data information to view the current version of your Chrome browser. Type the command URL chrome://system in the address bar and hit enter. Chrome version should display in the first line as shown below.
5. Check chrome://supervised-user-internal
The last option is go to the URL chrome://supervised-user-internals and get your Chrome version. This is also an easy way to view the version without auto updating.
