Here’s how to enable reading mode in Google’s Chrome browser


Integrating a helpful function into your software and then hiding it for more than a year doesn’t make much sense. But that’s exactly what Google does with the reading mode in its browser. How to use the function.

In order to be able to use the reader-friendly view in Google Chrome, you must first activate it. To do this, simply type chrome: flags in the address line and scroll down to the entry “Enable Reader Mode”. Then set it to “Enabled” on the right, then click on “Relaunch” below to restart the browser.

The reading mode hides annoying elements of a website. However, it must first be activated in Google's Chrome browser in order for it to be available.

The reading mode hides annoying elements of a website. However, it must first be activated in Google’s Chrome browser in order for it to be available.

If you subsequently call up a website for which Google considers reading mode to be appropriate, the browser will show you a sheet / book symbol to the right of the address line. If you move the mouse over it, the corresponding explanation appears with “Switch reading mode on / off”. Clicking on it hides annoying elements on the website, and the entire space is available for you to read the actual text. It may therefore be worthwhile to enlarge the font by pressing the Ctrl and + keys at the same time. Alternatively, hold down the Ctrl key while you zoom in by turning the mouse wheel.
