  1. How to move/delete social media icons in Chrome?


    In Chrome, is it possible to move or delete the block of icons for FaceBook, Twitter, Pin, email, etc that are pinned either to the left or right of my screen?


    On some pages, the icons block text, so I need to scroll up or down to expose that text.

    Thanks.

  2. Chrome glitch

    Hello Ralph,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description on one of the three users Chrome is not working.
    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.


    • The account on which you are facing issue with Chrome, does it have the administrator permission?
    • Have you check with other browser? Was the result same?
    • Is the issue specific to only one application or facing issue with other application too?

    First, I would suggest you to use Internet Explorer and see if it brings any difference.
    Here are the steps through which you can use Internet Explorer.




    • Press the Windows key.

    • Type Internet Explorer in the search box.

    • Right click on Internet Explorer
      (Desktop app).

    • Select Pint to task bar.

    • Try to use Internet Explorer from there and see if it brings any difference.

    If you still want to use Chrome then I would suggest you to open the application Chrome in administrator mode and see if it brings any difference. Here are the steps through which you can open Chrome in Administrator mode.

    • Press the Windows key or click on Start icon.
    • Type Google Chrome.
    • Right click on Google Chrome and select the option to Run As Administrator.
    • If everything works fine by running chrome in administrator mode then you may pin it to the task bar.

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.

    Regards,

    problem uninstalling google chrome

    Hi,

    Since you already uninstalled Google Chrome using the Programs and Features, Google notifications may still be running in the background processes. We suggest that you follow these steps on how to end the Google Chrome process:

    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
    • Select Task Manager.
    • Under Processes, locate Google Notifications or Google Chrome.
    • Right click on them and select End Task.
    • Double check under Programs and Features if Google Chrome is completely gone.

    Let us know if these steps worked.

    How to move/delete social media icons in Chrome?

    Everything reset, even social media?


    Hello,

    A few hours ago I left my computer to go for tea and when I got back I realized that my icons on my desktop had seemed to have deleted themselves and my wallpaper had reset. A quick look through my files and settings revealed that my WHOLE computer had been reset to factory settings, however, it isn't over yet: After I reinstalled some of my main programs I went onto my social media and noticed that, not only my computer had been reset, but all my accounts on social networking platforms: Youtube, Facebook, Skype, ect. had been reset also!

    If anyone knows how to fix this or has had the problem please respond! I only just updated to windows 10 a few weeks ago and I'm VERY displeased.

    - Ben

    P.S: When I restarted my computer my computer went back to factory settings (However not my social media).

    Edit: Also my 2 key and @ key have been swapped?
