    Google Region settings in Chrome keep reverting back to Current Region


    For years I have used the same search settings in Google. 1: Display 30 results per page and 2: region should be the USA (even though I now live in Israel.)

    I use Google Chrome and have the latest version. Version 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    For the past few days, after a few visits to my home page (google.com) The settings revert back to ISRAEL as the region. I keep putting it back to the USA but after a few minutes of browsing, it keeps going back to Israel.

    On other browsers (FF, Opera, etc) this does not happen.
    Meaning, when I go to search settings\region, in Chrome it will be set to my current region and in other browsers, it will be set to the USA.

    This itself is confusing because I would think that the changes made to the Google account settings should be global and not browser cookie-based.

    These are the things I have already tried and did not work:

    1. Logging out of all other locations and logging back in.
    2. Using this url: Google
    3. Clearing all history, cookies, etc.
    4. Allowing Google cookies.
    5. Location is disabled in my Google account settings.
    6. No one else is using my Google account.
    7. No other apps are changing this setting.

    I spent hours searching this issue on Google forums, but no one gave any more suggestions as to what’s causing this and why it only started happening a few days ago.

    What else could be causing this and what can I do?

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.

    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    How to change region in Counter-Strike?

    When I try to add Counter-Strike:Source to my games list and I fill in the key, I get a message saying: This prduct is only valid for Russia and nearby territories. Since you are not currently in this region, this product code cannot be activated. I am in Russia, so there must be somthing wrong with the settings. Any way to change my region?
