Are you an avid Windows 11 user who cannot stand the handful of additional pixels that appear on the right-angled edges of Google Chrome menus? Would your life be better if Chrome allowed those menus to have the curved style of your Windows operating system? If all of this rings true to you, then today’s your lucky day.
Finally, at long last, after months of anticipation and hype, rounded edges have landed on normal Chrome’s release build, version 96. To activate the minor Windows-11-inspired makeover for Chrome’s menus, you’ll need to follow these steps:
- Update Chrome to make sure you’re on version 96.
- Type in “chrome://flags” in the search bar and hit enter.
- Once you’re on the flags page, search for “Windows 11” in its search bar (not the main browser search bar, but the new one right below it).
- You should now see a Windows 11 option. Change “default” to “enabled” to secure your rounded edges.
That’s all there is to it. Once you’ve followed those four simple steps, you should have Chrome matching your Windows 11 aesthetic so you can have a properly sanded, edgeless experience (truly edgeless, in fact, since you’re not using Microsoft Edge) when navigating Chrome’s menus. The actual corners of the browser will remain intact.
This option should also be available for Chrome users on Windows 10, though we cannot confirm the feature has arrived there at this time.
