    Microsoft has played a little trick that I think is unfair, on Chrome and browsers based on Chrome.

    In Control Panel, Internet Options, Connections, Local Area Connections (LAN) settings, the default is "Automatically detect Settings" - click to clear the checkbox, then OK, OK, and close down Control Panel.

    This setting makes Chrome look for a proxy server for each page it loads, which slows things up. With the box unchecked, things should be faster.

    Mine is set to "Automatically detect Settings" and chrome starts just as fast as IE11 on my computer, which is very fast, no slowdown at all.

    I'm not so sure Internet Options has anything to do with Chrome launching as it usually is incorporated into Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Chrome and Firefox has their own settings as well, but they are located inside the browser. I have Automatic settings checked on my Windows 10 and I can say that it does not impede the opening of Chrome nor the performance. But, if it works for him, the better.

    Chrome can't connect to internet after Windows 10 Upgrade

    Apparently some people with the issue have resolved it by troubleshooting compatibility. I've used various builds of Chrome in Windows 10 without any problems.

    It's a known Chrome/Windows 8/10 problem - but not apparent on every machine, especially if you have plenty of resources
