    How to Change New Tab Button Position in Google Chrome


    This tutorial is no longer valid in the latest Google Chrome.



    When you click/tap on the New tab (+) button in Google Chrome, it opens a new tab in the browser.

    By default, the New tab (+) button is shown after opened tabs on the tab bar.

    Starting with Google Chrome 69, there is a new New tab button position flag for an experimental feature to control placement of the new tab button within the tabstrip (tab bar) in Google Chrome.

    This tutorial will show you how to change the New tab button position on the tab bar in Google Chrome for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

    Google Chrome Crahses and suspended in task manager

    Hi GSsswuw8,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below information:

    1. Do you have any antivirus installed on the computer?
    2. Are you aware of making any changes to the computer or browser prior to the issue?

    This issue is because of profile data corruption on google chrome or because of cookies, extensions, plugins and History. I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to resolve this issue.

    Method 1: Rename Google chrome file.


    Before proceeding I would suggest you end all the task related to Google Chrome from task manager.

    Step 1: Rename Chrome User Data file.


    1. Press Windows and
      E key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome.
    3. Search for User data folder. Rename this folder to UserData.old
    4. Open the chrome now and check if it is working.

    Note:
    The new user data folder will be created automatically, but
    new profile will not have any of your previous data in it. To access the data back, try signing out and signing in back to the application. Or you have to manually copy the data from old profile.

    Step 2: Copy the previous data to New Profile.


    I would suggest you end all the task related to Google Chrome from task manager.
    Then follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press Windows and
      E key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\UserData.old\Default.
    3. Open a new tab and navigate to: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default. (Make sure this is the new user data folder)
    4. Now copy the file one by one, once the copy is done. In-between Reopen Chrome browser and check if there is issue same issue.
    5. If the issue reoccurs, then the culprit is one of the file copied above.

    Method 2:
    Troubleshoot on google chrome.

    Note: The Uninstall and Reinstall option might reset security settings or privacy settings that you added, this will also clear the history, favorites, cookies and password. We recommend
    that you note these sites and settings before you use the Reset on chrome.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned in the article on
    Fix Chrome if it crashes or won't open.


    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking Yes or No.

    Google Chrome Tabs.

    In Google Chrome, I can right click and open numerous links in a new tab. But when I click on the tab the program freezes and I'm forced to use Task Manager to close Google Chrome.

    How to manipulate Google Chrome's tab position?

    I'm fed up with Firefox, probably a lot to do with me persevering with XP on my desktop, so I've switched to Chrome as a browser, however, I have a small problem.

    I use Rocketdock at the top of my screen and with Firefox it is not a problem because the tabs are below the line of the dock icons but now that I've switched to Chrome the tabs are right at the top of the screen and obscured by the dock icons.

    Is there a way to shunt Chrome's tabs down a notch, like those in Firefox.

    Tom.

    Firefox.
