    Anybody having trouble launching Google Chrome today?


    It seems to be taking over 5 minutesfor GC to appear, No error message display.
    In the task manager it shows shows 3active background processors but doesnít show Google chrome as an app launched.

    I am using windows 8.


    Any ideas?

    Desktop mode or Metro? See if you can get something out of this tutorial. Good luck:

    Chrome started freezing up on me like IE 10 did so I use Opera now.
    No freeze ups at all.
    Nice browser.
    My idea--- Try Opera.

    Opera is not well supported by much of anyone... It's not usually a problem, because Opera is very standards compliant, but occasionally there are problems that you have to live with, because nobody cares about Opera.

    I am trying to launch Google Chrome in desktop mode. Didn't have a problem with it yesterday or for the past 4 months.
    All of a sudden it doesn't launch for about 5 - 10 minutes.

    Question -
    If I were to uninstall and reinstall Google Chrome, how can I save and reapply my bookmarks to Google Chrome?

    Thanks
    Tom.

    I don't see people posting about problems using Opera.

    Just problems with IE 10, Chrome & Firefox.

    You can export your bookmarks in chrome under...well...here is the page...

    https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/96816?hl=en-GB

    Importing them , use the instructions for 'Import Bookmarks from all other browsers'.
