When you try to uninstall Google Chrome, you may get a dialog from the browser suggesting you to ‘Please close all Google Chrome windows and try again‘. Let us see how to fix this which after lets you remove Google browser.
Fixing error ‘Please close all Google Chrome windows and try again’
1. First things first, make sure no background app or pages of Chrome are running, if any, close them and also ensure ‘continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed’ setting under ‘System’ in Settings doesn’t have a tick, if it has, uncheck it.
2. Now open Task Manager, if you see more than one Chrome process running, right click on a process and select ‘End Process Tree’.
3. If steps 1 or 2 or both don’t help, then follow this one.
Download and install Unlocker in your computer.
Navigate to ‘ C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome’, right click on ‘User Data’ folder and select ‘Unlocker’, which shows all running Chrome processes, click on ‘Unlock All’ button.
