Google’s Chrome is not famous for being a resource hog, so we are breaking down some things you can do to help you lessen the load.

While so many things can be solved by accessing Task Manager, you might not be aware of the fact that the Chrome also has its Task Manager. Here is how you can check it out.

How to find out what is causing your Google Chrome to slowdown

In the Chrome browser, you will need to click on the Menu icon which is available at the upper right corner and from the select More tools >> Task Manager.

Alternatively, you can use a shortcut key SHIFT + ESC at the same time to quickly launch the Chrome Task Manager.

While we are in the Chrome Task Manager, you will find out what is eating up your computer’s CPU and RAM. These two things play a significant role in the smooth and proper functioning of the computer.

Let’s discuss some scenarios

If your computer gets hot, and its fans are spinning very fast with loads of noise, then the chances are that something is using up the CPU resources is pretty high.



If your computer is running slower than usual, then the chances are that Chrome tabs are eating up a lot of your RAM.


However, for users who are not entirely familiar with RAM, it is like the computers back pocket that keeps useful things that you can access easily. Chrome is well known as a notorious RAM hog, as it stores all the tabs and sites full text, pictures, videos and ads in the computer’s RAM.

To find out which Chrome processes is consuming your RAM and CPU, you will need to click on CPU and Memory Footprint located near the top. This will sort out the Chrome processes that are using most CPU and RAM. Here you can easily find out which tab, extension or site is using the most of your RAM and CPU.

Now, it’s up to you whether you want to close the tab or disable or uninstall the extension permanently. To terminate the particular tab, click on the tab to select it and then click on the ‘End Task‘ which is available at the bottom right corner.

In case you are using all the tabs actively and your computer is not running smoothly, then your best alternative is to upgrade your computer RAM or purchase a whole new computer with more RAM.

Note: If you’re using Windows 10, then it’s worth trying the Edge browser, which is the default web browser of the OS out of the box. Similarly, use Apple’s Safari browser on the Mac. These web browsers are highly optimised by the company to perform better on their OS as compared to a third-party browser like Google Chrome.
