Latest Stable Chrome Build Has a New ‘Reset to Default’ Option Available

If your Chrome browser reaches a point where it no longer works well, then that usually means uninstalling and reinstalling it in order to get back the fresh optimal performance you love. But things just got a lot simpler this week! The latest stable build of Chrome comes with a new ‘Reset to Default’ option that lets you return your browser to its original ‘shiny new condition’ with just a click of a button.

To access the new feature, just go to Settings, scroll down to the Advanced Settings section and expand it, then scroll to the Reset Browser Settings option located all the way at the bottom.

Once you click on the Reset Browser Settings Button, all tweaks and personalization except for themes, bookmarks, and apps will be wiped out, leaving you with a fresh browser once again.
