Google Chrome usually updates itself by putting an Update program in your start-up, but sometimes you may need to (or just want to) update it yourself, or just check check for an update, so here's how to do it.
For some reason lately Chrome won't let me highlight and cut / copy the text in my location bar. The cursor just locks itself wherever I click it. I CAN highlight and select text anywhere else in Chrome and cut / copy though, just not the URL Bar. I'm using Windows 8 64-Bit. Help!
For some reason all of the sound in my Google Chrome browser doesn't work. Anything that lays audio like YouTube videos, Facebook videos, SiriusXM internet player and things like that don't give any errors, and they look like they're playing, but just silence. I know that my whole computer isn't being affected though because I can still play sound in other browsers like Firefox at the same time.

Tired of typing in www (name of website) .com ? Here's another quick tip that will insert the www and .com for you in one easy step.
Just type in the name of the website you want in the url bar, e.g. "geekdrop" (sans quotes of course), then just hit Ctrl + Enter your computer will input the www. and the .com for you. Easy peasy!
What is a User Agent string, also known as your Browser string? Well it's basically your computer's information as far as what software you are running. It just gives the basics as to which OS (operating system) you are running, your basic security (if you have any) and which internet browser you are using. It also may tell if some other applications are installed, like the Microsoft.NET framework and the version you have installed.
