Google added a new Windows 11 Style Menu to the Canary version of the company's Chrome web browser this week. The new style matches the style of Windows 11 operating system menus, specifically the rounded corners.

Chrome Canary users may enable the new style right now on all versions of Windows. The feature is not available for other operating systems, including Linux, Mac or Chrome OS.

The screenshot below shows the new visual style of Chrome's right-click menu in the latest Chrome Canary version. The main difference to the previous menu is that the new menu has rounded corners.

Previous versions of Chrome show rectangular menus without rounded corners. All menus of the browser, including the main menu, tab menu or extension-specific menus, use rounded corners once the change has been made.

The change is only available in Chrome Canary on Windows at the time of writing. It needs to be enabled, as it not activated by default. Here is how you do that:

  1. Load chrome://flags/#win11-style-menus in the browser's address bar.
  2. Use the menu next to the flag to set it to Enabled if you run Windows 11. If you don't run Windows 11, set it to Enabled - All Windows versions instead.
  3. Restart Google Chrome using the restart button that is displayed.

Menus have rounded corners after the  launch. You can undo the change by setting the flag mentioned above to Disabled or Default. Google may enable the new style by default on Windows 11 in the future, but the company has not confirmed that this will indeed be the new default style in Chrome for Windows.

The new Windows 11 Style Menus feature is a cosmetic change in Google Chrome. The Canary version of Microsoft's Edge web browser uses rounded corners for its menus by default already, even on non-Windows 11 versions of Windows (tested only on Windows 10).

Microsoft plans to release Windows 11 on October 5, 2021.

Now You: what is your take on the menu change? Which style do you prefer? (via DeskmodderLEOPEVA)
