10 Google Chrome Icons That Will Change Your Online Life

Guide your Google Chrome experience with Chrome Icons

1. Chrome Menu

The Chrome menu is located at the top right of your Chrome navigator just below the tab bar. Look for the three round dots.

Use this menu to access to your bookmarks, settings, extensions, downloads, history and more.

2. Bookmark

You can bookmark webpages by selecting the star with the grey outline located inside of the omnibox on the far right. Once selected, you will be prompted to organize it into a folder. Once bookmarked, the star turns blue.

3. Refresh Button

In general, refresh is another way of describing the process of reloading or updating what is being displayed on the webpage you’re currently on. Click on the refresh button and the page you’re currently on will reload.

4. Forward and Back Arrows

Use the forward and back arrow buttons to go back a page or forward a page when navigating the web.

5. Information Icon

Click on the information icon to see more information about the webpage you're currently on. Note- This icon does not always display as an ‘i’ in a circle. It is sometimes a padlock.

6. New Tab Icon

To open a new tab, click on the ‘Tab’ icon. You can also use the keyboard shortcut “Command+N” or “Ctrl+N”

7. ‘x’ (within the tab]

Click on the ‘x’ within a tab to close that tab.

8. Magnifying Glass/Search

Use the magnifying glass icon to conduct a search on the web or on your device (if a Chromebook)

9. Download Icon

When you download something from the web, the download icon will appear on the bottom left side of your screen.

Note- Go to the Chrome Menu > Downloads to see all your downloaded items and to re-download them if needed

10. Close Icon

The close icon can appear in the top left or right of the Chrome window (depending on your device). Use this icon to close your window completely.
