    backup Google Chrome browser before reinstalling Windows?


    What bugs me about Chrome is that you can't simply copy the %appdata% chrome folder to the new Windows install.

    Even though you copy the Cookies file over, websites ignore that old cookie in the new install.

    So if you have a bank website you visit regularly, or a website you have customized with preferences, those are all forgotten on the new Windows install.

    Is there anything that will let me backup Chrome profile entirely and allow me to move it to a new pc or windows install?

    I don't want to use Google's online services to do backups. I don't like the idea of putting my passwords and stuff into the cloud.

    :)

  2. Google Chrome not working on Windows 10.

    Hi Tigerali,



    Thank you for your response with the current update on the issue.

    As suggested in the previous post, I recommend you to first uninstall the google chrome browser from the computer.

    After that try to download the google chrome browser software from the google website. Then try to reinstall google chrome browser software in compatible mode where you will install the software in previous version of Windows.

    I suggest you to follow the steps provided in the previous post to reinstall the google chrome browser.

  3. Windows 10 Not Opening Links in Chrome?

    Hi Franchek,

    We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.

    I understand that some of the link are not opening through Google Chrome.

    Before proceeding, we need to know which version of Google Chrome is installed on Windows 10.

    Note: As you don’t have any issues on EDGE browser, I suggest you to set the EDGE as default browser.

    I suggest you to delete the browsing history/delete cookies from the Google Chrome browser. If the issue still persists, uninstall and reinstall the Google Chrome from the Google Chrome website and check if it helps.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    I'm not mistaken, FavBackup can do what he wants. As you already use Chrome, I think you no longer need to have this whole fear of not using the service to back up in the browser itself
