    How do I stop this Google/Chrome desktop?

    Some how, some way I have turned on some kind of Google/Chrome desktop on my Asus ME400C.
    It opens up when I click on the chrome icon or something brings it up (see attached image).

    First does anyone know how to turn this off, all I want is chrome not Google's ?am desktop.

    Second, how do I change the default browser?
