- Using Jupyter Notebook in Chrome
If you're a data scientist or a Python programmer, chances are you've heard of Jupyter Notebook. It is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations, and narrative text.
How to Install and Use Jupyter Notebook
Step 1: Install Jupyter Notebook
The first step to opening Jupyter Notebook in Chrome is to install it on your computer. If you have Anaconda installed, then you already have Jupyter Notebook as it comes pre-installed. If not, then you can install it via pip, conda, or by downloading the installation files from the Jupyter website and following the instructions.
Step 2: Open Jupyter Notebook
Once Jupyter Notebook is installed on your computer, you can open it by typing the following command in your terminal:
This will automatically open Jupyter Notebook in your default browser. If you want to use a different browser, you can change your default browser in your computer's settings.
Step 3: Access Jupyter Notebook in Chrome
If Jupyter Notebook doesn't open in Chrome automatically, you can follow these steps:
Step 3.1: Copy the URL
When you open Jupyter Notebook in your default browser, you'll see a URL in your terminal that looks something like this:
Copy this URL to your clipboard.
Step 3.2: Open Chrome
Open a new tab in your Chrome browser.
Step 3.3: Paste the URL
Paste the URL from your clipboard into the address bar of the new tab and hit enter. This will open Jupyter Notebook in a new Chrome tab.

Creating a New Notebook
To create a new notebook in Jupyter Notebook, click on the "New" button on the right side of the screen and select "Python 3" or any other programming language of your choice. This will open a new notebook where you can write and run code.
To run a code cell in Jupyter Notebook, click on the cell to select it and press "Shift + Enter" or click on the "Run" button in the toolbar. This will execute the code in the cell and output the result below it.
Saving a Notebook
To save a notebook in Jupyter Notebook, click on "File" in the toolbar and select "Save and Checkpoint". You can also use the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl + S" or "Cmd + S" on Mac.
Closing a Notebook
To close a notebook in Jupyter Notebook, simply close the tab in your browser. If you want to shut down the Jupyter Notebook server completely, go back to your terminal and press "Ctrl + C".
With these simple instructions, you can now easily open Jupyter Notebook in Chrome and start coding right away.
