    Removing predictive text in Chrome - nothing works. Please help!


    Hello
    I have a real problem and I can't understand this (I am elderly but quite tech savvy). I have just moved to Google Chrome from Edge and it is great except for this problem.

    I have followed instns to remove predictive text to the letter from this site ie
    settings - advance -privacy........but your instns then clearly show a line which offers me the chance to switch it off but, on my Chrome screen in settings/privacy there is nothing like this!

    The icon on my desktop shows the Chrome logo and in Control Panel it shows as downloaded - am I not in Chrome? When I click on the icon the screen comes up with GOOGLE search bar in middle but does not mention Chrome.
    What am I doing wrong please? I am at my wits end over this. Must be in Chrome surely as when I downloaded it all my old favourites and desktops icons like you tube etc appeared with the Chrome circle.
    Thanks

    :)

    nothing works because as I said when I get to that page under settings - advaced - privacy the page shown is not like you show ie there is no toggle to turn off!

    Thanks a lot - have tried everything you suggested but just can't remove the predicted text! Has only happened since I moved to Chrome this week. Before, on Bing I was able to turn it off. I am elderley but usually computer savvy but this has beaten me!

    Thanks anyway

    Windows 10 text prediction suddenly not working in chrome

    I enabled "show text suggestions as I type" in Setting -> Typing and it works very well in chrome, but today, as I opened chrome, I found that text prediction does not work in chrome anymore, however, it still works outside chrome.

    How can I fix it?

    Thanks in advance.
