Troubleshooting Issues with Opening Google Chrome on Mac

If you are having trouble opening Google Chrome on your Mac, it could be due to a few possible causes.

Does Google Chrome Work on Mac Computers?

You will need to create a configuration profile in order to set up Chrome on Mac and then deploy it using your preferred MDM tool. Once deployed, users will be able to use Chrome just as they would on any other platform.

Troubleshooting Google Chrome Not Opening

If Google Chrome is not opening, first try restarting your computer. If that doesn't work, try reinstalling Chrome. To do this, open the start menu or search bar and type ‘add or remove programs'. Find Google Chrome in the list and select ‘uninstall'. Once it is uninstalled, download a fresh copy of Chrome from the official website and install it again.

If you are still having trouble opening Chrome after that, there could be something wrong with your profile. To fix this, go to the start menu or search bar again and type ‘Google Chrome'. Right-click on the icon that appears and selects ‘Run as administrator'. Go to Settings > Advanced > Reset and Clean Up > Reset Settings to their original defaults. This should reset any issues you are having with your profile.

If none of these steps resolve your issue, you can try using another web browser such as Firefox or Microsoft Edge instead of Chrome.

Using Chrome Instead of Safari on Mac

To use Chrome instead of Safari as your default web browser on Mac, open System Preferences from your Mac's Dock, Applications folder, or the Apple menu bar (? -> System Preferences…). Once System Preferences is open, select the General icon at the top of the preference panel. In the General section, click the dropdown menu next to “Default web browser” and select Chrome from the list of installed browsers. Once you have selected Chrome as your default browser, any time you open a link in an application it will open in Chrome instead of Safari.


In conclusion, Chrome is an incredibly powerful and user-friendly web browser for Macs. It has a lot of features that make browsing the web easy and enjoyable, including tabbed browsing, quick page loading times, and support for a wide range of plugins. Additionally, it offers great security features to keep your data safe and secure. All in all, Chrome is an excellent choice for Mac users looking for an efficient way to browse the web.
