Have you ever wanted to hit an api from a locally running client, except you kept running into CORS errors? Here's how to disable the CORS checks entirely on google chrome on a windows operating system to bypass that. Use at your own risk, as this does disable some browser security and isn't recommended for daily browsing.
# Instructions for disabling CORS checks on Windows
- Create or copy a google chrome shortcut on the desktop.
- Right click on the shortcut and go to properties.
- Modify the launch line adding these arguments to the command:
--disable-web-security --disable-features=IsolateOrigins,site-per-process --user-data-dir="C://ChromeDev"The full command should look like
"C:\ProgramFiles\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disable-web-security --disable-features=IsolateOrigins,site-per-process --user-data-dir="C://ChromeDev".
- Use the shortcut to launch google chrome.
That's it! Similar instructions should work on other operating systems as well with the same google chrome launch arguments.
