How to manually update Google Chrome


I didn’t want to run the Google Chrome installer without downloading. After downloading the installer, a warning said that this method sometimes yielded an installation of Chrome that did not automatically check for updates and that it was wise to do that manually.

After searching for a solution for this problem without success, I broke the problem into two parts:

  1. How to Manually Check for Updates.
  2. How to Do the Update if Necessary.

How to Manually Check for Updates

  1. Go to
  2. Look for Stable Channel Update
  3. Find the version number for your OS
  4. Click on the Chrome Wrench Icon
  5. Select About Google Chrome

How to Do the Update if Necessary

Selecting About Google Chrome from the Chrome Wrench Icon opens up a dialog that seemingly checked to see if chrome is up to date. In my case it performed the check, and did the update to 21.0.1180.77  from the previous version.
