Make a Web Address QR Code in Chrome on Desktop

Since Chrome has a built-in QR code generator, you don’t have to install any third-party extensions to get the job done. To start, launch Chrome on your Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer. Then access the site you want to turn into a QR code.

At the top of Chrome, click the address bar to reveal the QR code option.

Click the address bar in Chrome.


In the far right of the address bar, you will now see various icons. Click the “Create QR Code For This Page” icon (which is a partial square icon with four small squares in it).

Instantly, Chrome will open a “Scan QR Code” pop-up with your generated QR code in it. You can now scan this QR code from your iPhone or Android phone (or any other QR code scanner for that matter).

The "Scan QR Code" section in Chrome.

To save this QR code as an image to your computer, at the bottom-right corner of the “Scan QR Code” pop-up, click “Download.”

Click "Download" in the "Scan QR Code" section in Chrome.

You’ll see your computer’s standard “Save As” window. Select a folder to save your QR code image in, type a name for the image, and click “Save.”

Save the QR code to the computer using the "save" window.

And that’s all there is to making QR codes in Chrome on desktop. Very handy.
