If you are absolutely new to Ubuntu and Linux, this could be overwhelming for you and I completely understand that. This is why I am going to list each step with proper screenshots here. Now go to Google Chrome’s website.
When you click the download button, it gives two options for downloading files. You have to download the .deb file which is suitable for Ubuntu.
On the next screen, you should opt for saving the file to the computer instead of opening it in the software center for installation. If you don’t do that and there were some issues with the software center, you’ll have to download the deb file again. It’s better to download and save the file itself.
Your downloaded deb file should be in the Downloads folder. Installing deb files is super easy. Go to this folder and double click on the deb file. You can think of these deb files as those exe files in Windows.
It will then open Ubuntu’s software center and you should see an option for installing Google Chrome now. Hit on the install button.
Troubleshoot: In Ubuntu 20.04, you’ll have to right-click on the deb file and select top open with Software Center.
It will ask for your password before starting the installation. You should enter your account’s password. It should take less than a minute for completing the Google Chrome installation. You should see a remove option now which indicates that the software is installed.
Once you have installed Chrome on Ubuntu, you can search for it on the menu. Simply press the Windows key and start typing chrome.
