To restore Firefox to its default settings, without having to uninstall it, you had to pass through its Safe Mode: nothing long or complicated, but still something that might be avoided easily. As it is with Chrome!
In fact, restoring Google Chrome to its default settings is really easy as doing three clicks:
- On the top right of your Chrome’s screen open the Tools menu, and select Options
- There just select the last tab on the right, named Under the Hood.
- Look all the way down, and there you will find the Reset to defaults button.
That’s it! Nothing could be easier!
As Google says on the official Chrome help page, this operation will reset the following settings:
- Home page: The New Tab page is set as the home page and displays whenever you start up Google Chrome. The Home button is turned off on the toolbar.
- Passwords: Google Chrome offers to save your passwords.
- Download location: The default location for new downloads is Documents and Settings
