I already uninstalled the program but now I can't get rid of the shortcut icon on my computer screen. I've already left clicked it and tried to delete it but it said that it couldn't delete it. I even tried redownloading the program but that didn't work either. I'm so confused, help please.

Make sure your not using Google Chrome while you attempt to delete it. The program might not be completely removed from your computer. Click on start, then control panel, programs, uninstall a program (I'm using Windows 7, it might be different if your using another version) finally find Google Chrome in the list of programs and remove it completely from your computer, the desktop shortcut should disappear automatically.

To get rid of the Google Chrome shortcut icon on you computer, make sure you are not browsing using it. If you are using Mac, log in with administrator rights then go to the folder that has the web browser and drag it to trash icon on the dock. To uninstall completely, drag the Google Chrome out of the dock.
