Download and Install Google Chrome for Windows 8
Edited by Grimm, MsBarbs, Eng
Hi, you are watching VisiHow and today we are going to show you how to download and install Google Chrome, the Google Chrome web browser, for your Microsoft 8 Windows installation.
- 6Now you have the option to download for computer, for mobiles, features, galleries, and support.You have the setup options, where you can set up chrome. There are different apps you can install, themes, and extensions. You can print from the cloud or the chrome blog as well. If you have a Chromebook, you got features of the Chromebook, the HP Chromebook and the other Chromebooks that are out there. Then you have Chromecast, where you can actually set up your very own Chromecast. Since, we are talking about downloading the browser today, we are going to go ahead and click on 'download now', and get started downloading the browser.
- 7Now, first you have your terms of service.I don't normally ever read these. Of course you are welcome to, it is a lot of reading and it probably doesn't say that much. "Set Google Chrome as my default browser", is the first check option. We are going to un-check that. Next, "help make Google Chrome and better by automatically sending usage statistics and crash reports to Google", I don't like to send usage statistics. This to me is a bit deceptive, because they want me to send the usage statistics and crash reports. Crash reports, I am happy about. Usage statistics, I am not happy about. If you notice in our other video, we downloaded Firefox and these were two separate options. I had the option to send usage statistics and to send crash reports separately. I did elect to send the crash reports, but I am not going to send my usage statistics. So at any rate, click 'accept and install'.
- 34We are not sending usage statistics.I do like the spelling errors to pop up so Google Chrome can provide smarter spell-checking by sending what you type in the browser to Google servers. Google does that anyway, If you are using Gmail and a number of other things, so you can enable that and it is not a problem.
- 37That is it for Google Chrome.Thank you for choosing VisiHow and we look forward to being able to help you with new videos. If you have any questions or need additional help let us know in the comments section below or ask a question. Thanks and have a great day.Advertisement
