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.
Type “ad block” or “ad blocker” in the search box at the upper left of the page. Press enter.
You’ll see a list of available programs.
To the right, you can see the average rating of the product and how many users have downloaded it. Click on the star ratings to read the reviews.
Click More extension results to see even more ad block options.
Just click Add To Chrome to install.
