  1. Open the zip file you just downloaded and locate the .ADM file that best matches your system:
  2. Extract the .ADM file to any folder on your hard drive
  3. Go to Start > Run, and run gpedit.msc
  4. Right-click Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates, and select Add/Remove Templates:

      1. Depending on which operating system you have, it might be under a Classic Administrative Templates (ADM) folder:
  6. Click on Google Chrome in the left-hand pane and then double-click on the item called Enable deprecated web platform features in the list within the right-hand pane:

  7. In the new screen that appears, click the Enabled radio button:
  8. In the Options section of the same screen, click the Show… button
  9. On the new screen that appears, type ShowModalDialog_EffectiveUntil20150430 into the first cell of the table that’s displayed and hit ENTER: -IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure there are no spaces either before or after the ShowModalDialog_EffectiveUntil20150430 Otherwise, Chrome will reject the setting (see the Troubleshooting section for more information).
  10. Click OK
