How to Turn Off Lens Search in Google Chrome


It is very simple to disable Google Chrome’s Lens search capability and re-enable the more conventional “Search Google for This Image” context menu option. This is made possible by Google Chrome. This will show you how to do it in Chrome on both your desktop computer and your Android device.

It is possible to find out more information about the image that you have chosen by using the Lens search option, which is a feature that is included in Chrome. However, if you would rather use the older technique of doing a reverse search, it is simple to turn off this new function and regain access to the older option. If you ever change your mind about disabling the Lens search option, you may always enable it again.
