The Best Chrome Tip Ever

This tip solved a problem that was driving me CRAZY! I use Chrome with multiple open tabs and lately, I’ve had issues with the browser freezing or taking FOREVER and a day to boot up.

Chrome creates a separate operating process for each tab and extension you’re using. That can really start to add up. Check out Windows Task Manager. Chrome has clearly got a lot going on.

Here’s how to limit Chrome to running only one process per page. Find the shortcut for Chrome on your desktop and right-click. Then choose Properties.

When the Properties window opens, click the Shortcut tab. Then check out the Target line.

It reads

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" Go all the way to the end of that line and add --process-per-site.

It should read:

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –process-per-site

Then click on Apply.

I noticed an immediate difference in speed.

  1. I’m running Win 10 Home Edition Build 1909 and the most current Chrome available 88.0.4324.150, on a Toshiba Laptop. When I right-click on the Chrome Icon on my task bar there is nothing that says properties. In fact I can find nothing that says that anywhere in any of Chrome’ s Menu’s. What do you suggest? Thankyou J.W. Spead
