Original problem: It is November of 2022 and Google Chrome will offer updates until February of next year for Windows 8.1 users.

How do we disable CONSTANT notifications that "To get future Google Chrome updates, you'll need Windows 10 or later. This computer is using Windows 8.1." [or Windows 7]

There are a million reasons why certain machines will *never* get updated from Windows 8.1.
The last version of Google Chrome without this nag is 107.0.5304.122.
As of Dec 2022, the last version of Google Chrome for Win7/8 will be v109.

Sadly, this solution does not appear to work on Portable Chrome, only full install Google Chrome.


SOLUTION: Make this text file with a .reg extension then double click on it, to enter it into registry, restart Google Chrome:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Google\Chrome]
"SuppressUnsupportedOSWarning"=dword:00000001
