Google Maps is one of the most popular map applications available, but some users have recently been experiencing difficulties using it in Chrome. This can be frustrating if you need to use Google Maps for navigation or finding directions. Luckily, there are a few simple steps you can take to fix the problem. Keep reading to learn how to get Google Maps working in Chrome again.
What is causing the ‘Google Maps Not Working in Chrome’ error?
There are a few things that could be causing the ‘Google Maps Not Working in Chrome’ error. One possibility is that the Google Maps extension is not enabled in Chrome. To check if this is the case, open Chrome and type ‘chrome://extensions’ into the address bar. If the Google Maps extension is listed here, make sure that it is enabled. Another possibility is that your internet connection is not strong enough to load Google Maps. Try opening another website in Chrome to see if you can connect to it without issue. If you still can’t access Google Maps, restart your computer and try again. Finally, if all else fails, contact Google customer support for further assistance.
Using Incognito mode
When you use incognito mode, your browsing history and cookies are not saved on your device. This means that any websites you visit will not be able to track you or remember any of your activity. Additionally, any passwords or autofill information you enter will not be saved by your browser. However, it is important to note that incognito mode does not make you completely anonymous online. Your ISP can still see what websites you are visiting, and any cookies that are set in incognito mode can still be accessed by the website. Additionally, any files you download in incognito mode will still be stored on your device. If you’re looking for complete anonymity online, you’ll need to use a VPN. However, for general browsing, incognito mode is a great way to keep your activity private.
Logging out of your Google Account
Many of us use Google products on a daily basis. From searching the web to checking our email, Google has become an integral part of our lives. However, there are times when we need to log out of our Google account, whether it’s to protect our privacy or simply to take a break from the endless stream of information. Luckily, logging out of your Google account is a relatively simple process. Just head to the settings page and click on the “Sign out” button. Once you’ve signed out, you’ll be able to enjoy a little peace of mind knowing that your account is safe and secure.
Deleting any cookie that starts with gsScrollPos
If you’re experiencing issues with Google Maps in Chrome, one potential fix is to delete cookies that start with “gsScrollPos.” These are cookies that store scrolling position information for pages you visit. Sometimes, these cookies can become corrupted and cause problems with scrolling. To delete them, open Chrome’s settings panel and click “Show advanced settings.” Under the “Privacy” section, click “Content settings.” Then, under the “Cookies” section, find any cookies that start with “gsScrollPos” and click the trash can icon next to them. After deleting the cookies, try reloading the page to see if the issue has been resolved.
Uninstalling the Great Suspender extension
If you’re having trouble with Google Maps not working in Chrome, one possible solution is to uninstall the Great Suspender extension. The Great Suspender is a popular extension that helps improve the performance of Chrome by suspending tabs that are not actively being used. However, it can also cause problems with certain sites, including Google Maps. To uninstall the Great Suspender, open Chrome and click on the menu icon (three dots) in the top-right corner. Select “More tools” and then “Extensions.” Find the Great Suspender in the list and click on “Remove.” You may also need to restart Chrome for the changes to take effect. If you’re still having trouble with Google Maps, you may need to try another solution.
