How can I safely remove search.myway.com from my Google Chrome browser

I'm on an HP laptop running Windows 10 home with 64 bit OS and Windows Defender.  Somehow, I have been infected with "search.myway.com".  I have both Edge and Chrome browsers but it seems to have only infected my Google Chrome browser.  How can I safely remove this most annoying adware?
