If the About page shows Microsoft Edge is up to date, you don't need to do anything.


If the About page shows An update is available. Select Download and install to proceed. Network charges may apply., select Download and install. Microsoft Edge will download the update an apply it the next time you restart Microsoft Edge. Note that if you're on cellular network, downloading the update may incur charges.

Get a Chrome update when available

Normally updates happen in the background when you close and reopen your computer's browser. But if you haven't closed your browser in a while, you might find a pending update:

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, select More More.
  3. If an update is pending, you'll find:
    1. "Relaunch to update"
    2. "Finish update"
    3. "New Chrome available"

To update Google Chrome:

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More by choosing the 3 dots in the top right of the browser
  3. Click Help and then About Google Chrome.
  4. Click Update Google Chrome.

Important: If you can't find this button, you're on the latest version.

Click Relaunch.

The browser saves your opened tabs and windows and reopens them automatically when it restarts. Your Incognito windows won't reopen when Chrome restarts. If you'd prefer not to restart right away, click Not now. The next time you restart your browser, the update will be applied.
