So recently, I’ve seen many people tweeting about this issue with the popular browser Google Chrome
Where people claim that Chrome is taking up very high usage of CPU or RAM as in Task Manager
And the thing is this happens even when Chrome is running just in the Background.
So as in my Tweet, I have found multiple ways to fix this problem
And here’s how to
Method 1(Google Chrome Running in Background)
This one is actually simple and there will be no of tweaking any settings
This will just disable Chrome running in the background.
Step 1: Open Task Manager
Step 2: Find Google Chrome in the Processes and click on End Task
Once that is done, stay in the Task Manager cause there’s one more thing to do
Step 3: Go to Startup and find Google Chrome on the list, right-click on it and choose Disable.
This will stop Chrome from launching everything your PC Boots up.
Once you’ve done everything, restart the PC and if the problem is fixed, you’re good
and if it’s not, follow along.
This one requires a minor change in Chrome’s settings but it’s most likely to work
Step 1: Open Chrome and go to Settings
Step 2: Now go to Advanced and find System
Step 3: Now Disable both the Hardware Acceleration and Running Background Apps like in the Screenshot
Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter if this fixed the problem.
What if the problem is still not fixed?
Well, in that case, you can try these things
Disabling all the Extensions
People have claimed that some Extensions in Google Chrome take up too much usage
So try disabling them one by one and see if the problem is fixed.
You’ll find an option to reset every setting to default in the Advanced tab, make sure to clear the Caches too.
Reinstalling Google Chrome
This will be the last thing you should do, fully uninstall Chrome and install it again.
