This has to be installed on your PC using the downloaded installer.
If you want to check if you are using the latest version then you can launch Chrome web browser, click on the Chrome menu icon (three lines) and then choose Help → About Google Chrome. If the latest update is available, you will see a button labeled Restart. You can click on this button to finish the update. If it has already been installed, then the Chrome browser version should read 100.0.4896.127.
