Personalize Your Google Chrome: Templates 101 

GC has so many cool patterns to play with absolutely for free. If you haven’t personalized your browser yet we can tell you how to do it in a few minutes.

What Is It For?

So how do you install GC decorations to give browser a facelift? Here is a step by step guide :

  1. Open the Web Shop in your GC. Look for the special dedicated submenu. Find it in the left horizontal menu together with games, additions and apps. Click on it to see the page content,
  2. When you see a decoration you want to install into your GC click on it. A new screen with a preview and reviews will show up,
  3. When you see the big blue toggle titled “Add to Chrome” activate it with one push, the template of your GC will change.

Do it for as many times as you like just repeating the same actions. But GC has way more capabilities than just templates; you could also experiment with games and other cool features like add-ons etc.

Sadly there are no available templates for your mobile GC but hopefully soon enough things will become different. The existing free GC templates are not responsive to small portable device screens and only work on mainframe screens.

Pick Your Theme

You can see various styles meant to satisfy every user out there.

  • Minimalist style,
  • Dark style,
  • Top downloads,
  • Superheroes,
  • Patterns,
  • Blue,
  • Sunshine,
  • Vehicles,
  • Flowers,
  • Forests,
  • Doodles,
  • Skies,
  • City

Once you lay you eye on a template you like, make it do a test run to see if it works well and aligned. Don’t forget to make sure the template paintings are favorable for your eyesight and will be suitable for a continued use. Also make sure it is not too bright or you will end up staring at it every time you open your GC.

Keep in mind that you can go back to the basic GC layout you had before you pushed on your first layout at any moment. All you need to do is bring back the basic starter pattern when you reset the theme. The starter template will make a comeback right away you will see your GC coming back to its usual look.

More to Enjoy

But what if people ask to know the name of the amazing pattern you have? You can find it at any time at the following address: disk C: C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\default and in line “name” you can find the name of your current pattern. If you don’t see anything push on “show the hidden files” caption. Hope you have found these advices useful; remember to come back for more.
