  1. Managing the Chrome toolbar


    Has anyone else noticed the erratic toolbar icon behavior since Chrome included that static "Extensions" toolbar button on the right?

    Random buttons are prone to involuntarily change positions or are removed from the toolbar altogether (not the drop down menu), even tho their setting is "pinned". If you want to get that button back on the toolbar, it must first be "unpinned", and then pinned once again.

    Once it is pinned, it is place next to the 'Extensions" button. As you try to move it, a location is created six or seven spaces down the line to the left. Afterwards, If you want to move it backwards to the right, anywhere before that point, you can't, unless you perform multiple manipulations of multiple toolbar buttons, or unpin and re-pin the button once again, whereupon you must once again engage in this ridiculous exercise.

    Am I missing something? Doing something wrong? Is there an extension that will help?

    :)

    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.

    I recently received a new computer that has Windows 10. My Chrome toolbar from Windows 7 has been replaced with a toolbar I used with Windows XP. How can I get my current (meaning Windows 7) toolbar back?

    Managing the Chrome toolbar

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?

    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?
