Is there a way to remove this annoying box around items I click on in Chrome? Every time I click on anything I'm browsing, Windows 11 loves to put some rounded box around what I click on. Note in the screenshot below, I clicked on the search box, and of course, Windows 11 adds some box around it.

This looks like Chrome's 'Quick Focus Highlight' accessibility feature.

You can disable this by doing the following:

  • In the top right of Google Chrome, click the three dots to open the menu
  • Press Settings and then go to Advanced
  • Click Accessibility from within the Advanced menu
  • Turn the slider off for 'Show a quick highlight on the focused object'

You could also insert the following in your URL bar to go directly to it: chrome://settings/accessibility
