6. Click the ‘Download Chrome’ button and give access as ‘allow’ for downloads.
7. The file is getting downloaded. It might take a while, depending on your internet connectivity. If it is loading for a long time, have a tea break!
8. The extension of the file that is being downloaded is .dmg, and the total space required all through the process is about 95.2MB.
9. Let’s wait for the download to complete. Once it is downloaded, straight away click on the dmg file.
10. After opening the dmg file, a new window will appear. Now, drag the Chrome icon into the applications folder. While dragging the Chrome icon, do not forget to press the ‘cmd’ key simultaneously.
11. Google Chrome application is now copied into the mac system’s application folder.
12. Go to Launchpad and scroll to the end. The new application – Google Chrome, that is being downloaded now will be seen. You can also check for the Google Chrome application in your application folder.
13. Let us try opening Google Chrome. Double click on the application, and when I opened it for the first time, I had to make a slight setting up.
