Do You Need Windows 10 Chrome Offline Installer?
You can use the same Windows installer to install Chrome on Windows 10. After installing Google Chrome on Windows, you will find the option to enable or disable the Windows 8 Metro Mode.
The Metro Mode on Google Chrome gives you a user interface similar to Google’s own Chrome OS. You will be working on a full-screen Chrome with a feeling of owning a Chromebook. Here is a screenshot.
If you are not happy with this interface, you can always switch back to the normal Google Chrome mode by relaunching it in the regular mode (from Settings menu).
The offline installer is used when you are unable to use the regular installer to get Chrome. The regular installer downloads a smaller file that downloads the rest of the installer and completes the installation. In case this is not working, the offline installer is the best workaround that you can try.
Installing Without Internet Connection Using Offline Installer
The offline installer is also used when a computer that you are trying to install Chrome on does not have an internet connection or has a slow internet connection. In such situations, you can download the complete offline installer setup file on a computer where you have a fast internet connection. After downloading, copy the installer to the computer where you want to install Chrome. Double-click the file to start the installation.
Another useful scenario is when you have to install Google Chrome on multiple computers. If you are to use the regular download and install process, you will end up downloading the complete file multiple times. If you have 10 computers to install Google Chrome on, this means you will download and the file 10 times. Imagine that the Chrome installer is 25 MB. By the time you finish installing Chrome on 10 computers, you will exhaust 250MBs of your broadband usage. However, if you use the offline installer, you can reduce this usage back to 25 MB. You will download it one time, copy it to all the 10 computers that you need to install Google Chrome on and install it.
