Manual Updates for Google Earth and Google Chrome

    Hello,

    I recently asked about how to manually check for and update Google Earth
    and Google Chrome, to which I received a prompt answer.

    The information that I received was for PCs, however, as I forget to
    mention in my original post that I needed this information for a MacBook
    Pro.

    I thus need to ask again how I can manually update Google Earth and
    Google Chrome on MacBook Pro. I notice that they automatically update
    themselves, though I wish to manually check for updates and act on it
    myself.

    Thanks once again for your time.

    This information is out of date, but still interesting.
    It says when you download Google Earth, you're actually
    downloading a program called Google Update.

    Instead, there are (were) stand-alone tool installers,
    like a .dmg with just the Google Earth in it. If instead,
    you naively went to Google and clicked a download button,
    you'd get Google Update control tool instead.

    So this would get you just Google Earth. A question would
    be, how easy it would be to get rid of all the effects
    of the updater (i.e. is any removal process, complete).

    I can open that with 7ZIP, and at least in the folder
    structure, the word "Updater" doesn't pop out at me. Maybe
    that'll work for you.

    Chrome has a button on the top right corner that pulls down a dialog box
    that has lots of selections, one of them is UPDATE GOOGLE CHROME, which when
    you select it launches the updater.

    I do not understand questions like this because if the question is restated
    as, "Why do I have a headache?" the obvious answer is, "Because there is a
    hammer hitting you in the forehead."
