    Google Search Problem


    I've recently noticed "Safe Preview Refinements" when I do google searches, how can I remove this?

    this link is pretty old but I guess you can turn it off by clicking on the 'x'

    A new trial for safe preview instead of safe search perhaps.

    I don't have it but I understood it to mean the [x] after the word "Refinements" in your first post.

    If not what do you have in extensions? If you are using Chrome enter chrome://extensions/ as the address and it should look like this but you should have an option for "Safe Preview Options"

    Sorry, I don't know then - unless you want to turn it off. The message is telling you that you only have a subset of results.
