google chrome – Some shortcuts in Windows start menu have wrong (always dark) background

In my Windows start menu, I have several Chrome shortcuts (Gmail, Outlook, Teams, OneDrive, To Do). They all have the same background, except To Do. How can I make To Do also have a light background?

enter image description here

What I have tried/checked so far:

  1. The icon does have a transparent background in general, which is clear when searching for it:

  1. The shortcuts all look the same in the Windows folder:

  1. When Windows is in dark mode, the background is the same for all shortcuts. So I guess, the mode for this one item is always dark?

Chrome Tab Grid Layout can no longer be disabled via chrome://flags, is there another way?

Doing some more research, I find that this is no longer enough

Update: That used to be it, but with the most recent update Google broke this fix, but never fear there is a temporary solution to make it work again.

  1. Type chrome://flags/#temporary-unexpire-flags-m88 into the address bar
  2. Tap on the drop-down menu in the Tab Grid Layout entry
  3. Select “Enabled”
  4. Tap the Relaunch button at the bottom of the screen

I suspect that will only be a temporary solution though.

Chrome Suicides after Update – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

Since the last two versions of Chrome available in the Google Play Store, one from March 12 and the other from April 13, the update process sort-of removes Chrome from the phone:

  • Chrome icon is removed.

  • Chrome disappears from the the application menu.

  • Chrome is still shown in the Google Play Store under Installed Apps only has an Uninstall button (no Open).

  • In the Settings > Applications menu, the updated version of Chrome is listed but can only be uninstalled too.

This is happening on the same Moto G5 Android phone I have been using for years and every Chrome update until March 2021 worked without issues. I tried a few times by uninstalling (which reverts to the stock version) Chrome and doing the update from various intermediate versions bu the last two suicide every time the update!

What is going on there? Does that mean the hardware is too old to support these Chrome releases? The Moto G5 is running on Android 7.0 with security patch May 2017 and no System Updates are offered.

Boot Linux USB from Chromebook without wiping existing Chrome OS

I want to know if there’s a way to boot Linux USB from Chromebook without wiping existing Chrome OS?
The general experience with a standard laptop or PC is you plug into a PC then just boot from USB either through boot selection or BIOS setting. However, this is not the case with Chromebooks.

From what I have seen from Youtube, the way to boot from USB is to enter developer mode which will first wipe out your existing Chrome OS.

data recovery – Recover deleted chrome bookmarks, saved passwords, etc on android smartphone

My google account wasn’t even logged into google chrome. I was looking to backup my saved bookmarks and passwords and dissociate any such linked data with my google account. I went on to “chrome synced data” page and there it stated that if i clicked on “clear data” it’ll only delete history, bookmarks, passwords, etc. from my google account and not from my device. The fact of the matter is that even if that action could delete stored chrome data on my device, my chrome was not linked to any google account in the first place. I don’t know what happened, i lost 2 year worth of my life’s work in an instant. I really need those passwords and bookmarks. I don’t remember any of them. I’m using an android smartphone running on android 10. Please help me. I’m really desperate and tensed. If you don’t know how to recover them, then atleast guide me how or who should i contact .

Unsolicited Tabs keep Appearing On Chrome On My Samsung 7 Mobile Phone

New tabs containing questionable sites/malware warnings etc. keep popping up unsolicited on Chrome on my Samsung 7 mobile phone. Sometimes as many as 10+ in an hour. Sometimes I can be using a different app and I will automatically be redirected to a new unsolicited web page in Chrome. I have tried everything including clearing cache etc. and various antivirus/malware scans. Even cleared nonessential apps from my phone. Would like to uninstall and reinstall Chrome, but understand that’s not possible. Any ideas?

chrome – Why won’t network links open in pdf documents from SharePoint 2016?

We have multiple pdf documents in a SharePoint 2016 document library and we use Office Online Server. Within the pdf documents are links to network files. The pdf files open in a web browser (Edge Chromium and Chrome). Clicking a link (points to a network file, word/excel document) in the pdf from the web browser does nothing. The document never opens. No errors. No information in browser developer tools. Opening the pdf in Adobe Acrobat Reader and then clicking a link to network files, opens the file. Is SharePoint preventing the network link from opening the file? Is Office Online Server preventing the network link from opening the file? Is this a browser issue?
