Thanks to @eesheesh , I could install chrome in Run Dialog. Here's slightly improved version which reduces download time by removing progress bar. ( https://stackoverflow.com/a/43477248 )

PowerShell -Command "& {$P=$env:TEMP+'\chrome_installer.exe';$ProgressPreference='SilentlyContinue';IWR 'https://dl.google.com/chrome/install/latest/chrome_installer.exe' -OutFile $P;SAPS -FilePath $P -Args '/silent /install' -Verb RunAs -Wait;DEL $P}"

"http://dl.google.com/chrome/install/latest/chrome_installer.exe" This is not downloading the latest version of Chrome. Does anyone know the reason?

Thanks @kyungjaepark! I've put this in a dedicated website, to make it easy for folks to quickly install Chrome/Firefox on a new machine, without having to type in the command: https://insta.llc (works with http://insta.llc without redirects as well, for folks installing versions of Windows that complain about HTTPS).

$uri = "https://dl.google.com/chrome/install/latest/chrome_installer.exe";
$path = "$PSScriptRoot\ChromeSetup.exe";
Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $uri -OutFile $path;
Start-Process $path /install -NoNewWindow -Wait; 
Remove-Item $path;

This is amazing work, thank you so much! If I could only find something similar for Adobe Reader my life would be complete.
