Find An Ad Blocker For Chrome

A reader wanted to know the best place to find an ad-blocker:  “I would like to add an Ad Blocker to my computer, I have a Dell All in One, running Windows 10, and my browser is Google Chrome.  Can you recommend a good free Ad Blocker??  And will I have to be a computer Geek to install it??  I am SO sick of all the ads slowing down my viewing web pages.”

What you want is an extension for Chrome. An extension is a program that only runs inside the chrome browser.  The quickest way to find one is to type this in your Chrome address bar and hit enter:  chrome://extensions/

A window displaying your installed extensions will open. You’ll want to click on Get more extensions at the bottom.

The Chrome web store will open.
