How Do I Open a Figma File in Chrome?

Figma is a powerful vector graphics editor and prototyping tool that gives designers the ability to quickly and easily create high-fidelity designs. While Figma is an excellent tool for creating, editing, and collaborating on design projects, it can be confusing to figure out how to open a Figma file in Chrome. Here we’ll provide a step-by-step guide on how to do just that.

The first step is to get the Figma file you want to open in Chrome. You can open any existing Figma project or create a new one by signing up with your email address or signing in with your Google account. Once you’ve logged into your account, you can then access your files from the left-hand panel.

Next, you’ll need to export the file as HTML from within Figma. This can be done by selecting ‘Export’ from the top menu bar and then choosing ‘HTML’ from the dropdown menu.

A pop-up will then appear asking for an export folder location (this is optional), as well as an option for whether you want to embed images or not (default setting). Click ‘Export’ once again when you’ve made all of your selections.

The third step is to open the exported HTML file in Chrome.

You can do this by dragging and dropping the HTML file into Chrome or by navigating to it via File > Open File > Choose File. The page should then open up within Chrome, allowing you to view the design exactly as it was designed in Figma.

Finally, if you need to make any changes or edit anything, simply double click on any element of the design within Chrome and make your desired changes directly within Chrome itself. This way all of your changes will automatically be saved back into Figma.


By following these simple steps, anyone can quickly and easily open a Figma file in Chrome without any problems. Not only does this allow designers to quickly view their designs within their browser but also gives them the opportunity to make edits without having to go back into Figma each time – making editing quick and easy!
