Find Current Theme Name on Chrome

UPDATE:::

You don’t have to try any of these methods no more.

Google has updated their settings page to easily go to your current theme page in the settings..1

Just hit that button!





Chrome is the most popular and most used browser of all-time! Chrome is customizable in many ways and themes are one of the coolest thing in the Chrome Web Store. Finding the current theme installed on Chrome is very hard right now And It’s a shame that Chrome still doesn’t show us the current theme name anywhere in the Browser. There are three three methods to find your current Chrome Theme: 1st Method:

Go to chrome://net-internals/#modules from your Chrome Browser and scroll down and you will see the name of your Theme in the “Name” section Under “Chrome Extension”.

If you have a lot extensions installed (like me) it will be hard to find it from that long list. Then Press “Ctrl+F” to open the Find tool and search “Theme” most probably your current theme’s row will be highlighted. This is the easiest way so far.

2nd Method:

This method uses a third party extension called Extensions Manager (aka Switcher) from the Chrome Web Store. At the bottom of the list of extensions you’ll find the name of your current theme.

3rd Method:

This method is little advanced, In windows:

Go to the folder “C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\default”

The file “Preferences” can be opened in notepad or wordpad.  Scroll down to where your theme is mentioned.  The name of your current theme is mentioned as

“Name: NAME OF THEME”.

You have to check the option of “show hidden files” in the folder option to find this folder.

4th Method:

I don’t highlight this method much because it’s rather obvious and not reliable.

Head to the Theme Gallery in Chrome webstore and search the gallery to find it again.

You’ll have the luck to find your theme fast if your theme is a trending or popular one.

Hope that helped! Leave a comment if you have any doubts or wants to add another method.
