Tip: Enable Windows 11-Style Menus in Google Chrome

Posted on November 19, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Mozilla Firefox, Windows 11 with 5 Comments

If you’re using Windows 11 and Chrome, you can now get a more native look in Google’s browser by enabling an optional new feature.

As you may know, rounded corners on windows and UI elements is one of the key changes in Windows 11, and application windows get it automatically. So if you’re using Google Chrome, you already have rounded window corners.

But with Chrome 96, released this week, you can optionally enable rounded menus in Chrome as well. To do so, navigate to chrome://flags and then search for:


Change this from Default (which I assume will later work normally) to Enabled. You’ll need to restart the browser, and then you’ll have Windows 11-style rounded corners on Chrome’s menus.

    Anyone else notice the Windows 11-style context menu in Edge on Windows 10? Looks like the option in Settings>Accessibility>Show mini menu when selecting text controls it.

    You can also find this in Edge. Also under ://flags I just enabled it on my Edge in Windows 10.

    Personally, the last thing I want on a Chromebook (or any other OS/Browser for that matter), is a Windows 11 look-a-like anything. Hell, I don't even want it on Windows.
