If you have Google’s Chrome browser installed on your computer and like to use TweetDeck, you can do so easily without having to download the program to your desktop. Here are some quick video and text tutorials, along with some good links to help you.
Installing TweetDeck in your Chrome browser:
Step 1: Click on “start,” then double-click on “Google Chrome.” If you don’t see it, click on “all programs,” then double-click on “Google Chrome.”
Step 1A: Some people (using the Windows 7 operating system) might need to click on “start,” then type “chrome” into the search box.
Step 2: When you open Chrome, you will probably be asked to sign in with your Google account. If you don’t have one, you can create one for free.
Step 3: When you sign in, you will see a “Web Store” icon (or you might see an Angry Birds ad). Either double-click the web store icon or click the button that asks you about Angry Birds. Both will take you to the web store.
Step 4: Search for “TweetDeck.” You want to install the App, not the extension. Click on it and you will get the install screen. Go ahead and install. (Note: This is not downloading it to your computer. It is putting it in your Chrome browser. It will only work when you open your Chrome browser.)
Step 5: Open the TweetDeck icon once it shows up in your browser. You will have to sign in or create an account.
Step 6: If you want to create a TweetDeck shortcut on your desktop, right click on the icon and choose “create shortcut.”
