I am going Google Chrome, on Windows XP. Sometimes it crashed, and I want to know where the crash dump is located, just for fun.

Google Chrome crashes: Finding crash logs:

  • The browser was downloaded from http://www.google.com/chrome

    • Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\CrashReports
    • Windows Vista: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\CrashReports
  • The browser came with your computer or was downloaded from Google Pack.

    • Windows XP: C:\Program Files\Google\Update\CrashReports
    • Windows Vista: C:\Program Files\Google\Update\CrashReports

Once there, look for a file named Chrome-last.dmp

There is no longer an 'under the hood' option anymore and hence the above answer is obsolete and no longer of any use. With a newer version of chrome you need to enable chrash logs by going to settings/privacy and enabling: Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google. After that you can check your crash logs here: chrome://crashes/
