How to fix “This computer will no longer receive Chrome updates because Windows XP and Windows Vista are no longer supported”

If you are trying to launch Chrome on XP or Vista, you will get this message. Here are some ways to fix it.

I am not using Windows XP or Vista.

Chrome is displaying this message because Chrome has been set to run in Windows’ compatibility mode. Disable compatibility mode by right clicking on Chrome and pressing properties. Click Compatibility and disable compatibility mode and press Apply, then OK.

I am using Windows XP or Vista, but I don’t want to see the message.

Upgrade your OS. Google no longer support Chrome on XP and Vista so upgrading will keep you secure. Microsoft no longer support XP and Vista support ending is near us too.

Or if you want to stick with your current Operating System, right click on Chrome, press Properties, and add –disable-infobars to the command line. Press Apply, then OK and launch Chrome. Hurray! Chrome should not display the message but you still won’t receive updates.

Using Chrome on Windows XP or Vista? Well, you are in danger!

Chrome was released in 2008 for Windows, and Linux and Mac OS X versions were released later on. CHROME IS OLDER THAN MINECRAFT.

Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on 8th April 2014, and Windows Vista support will end on 11th April 2017. Microsoft were enthusiastic when Windows XP was released, but enthusiasm comes… and fades.

Google have ended support for Chrome on Windows XP and Vista. If you are using one of these OSes, then you will need to update to at least Windows 7 to continue to use Chrome. If you don’t want to upgrade, then switch to Firefox for now.
