    Google Earth Pro... for who?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    In order to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the following details:



    • When you say, “I found the Chrome version too limiting, so I downloaded a copy” Did you download a copy of Google Chrome or download Google Earth?
    • What happens when you try to move the Earth?
    • Do you get any error message/code?


    However, I suggest you to refer the section Stop Earth from spinning
    from the article
    Fix Google Earth errors
    provided by Google and instead of unchecking put a check mark for the option Enable Controller.



    For any installation related issues with Google Earth, please refer the article

    Install & uninstall Google Earth Pro
    .



    For versions of Google Earth, you can refer the link
    Google Earth
    .



    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare

    Google Earth problems


    If you don't have a desktop shortcut for Google Earth...
    Click on start menu then click all apps then find Google Earth on the list. When you find click on it and google earth it will open.
    Or you right click on it and pin it to start menu or you can right click and open file location and find the short cut and send to
    (create shotcut)desktop... Note: I have it on my windows 10 works fine...

    Google Earth is not running in Windows 10.

    Hi Cassandra,

    It's unfortunate that you are facing this issue. We'll certainly assist you with this.

    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:

    • Are you downloading Google Earth from Windows Store or browser?
    • If browser, which browser are you using to download Google Earth?
    • What is the message displayed on screen when downloading Google Earth?
    I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the Google Earth in compatibility mode.
    Follow the below steps:

    1. Right click on the setup file and select Properties.

    2. Select Compatibility tab.

    3. Check Run this program in Compatibility mode.

    4. Let the Google Earth install and then check the functionality.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Hope this helps, let us know the status of the issue.
