    Google chrome no longer usable with the desktop


    I've just installed one of the compulsory updates and google chrome has become really annoying. While it appears as one of the tabs on the bottom of the screen of the desktop, when I click on it, it takes me away from the desktop and I have to click on the windows icon button to go back which is infuriating! And any time I mover my mouse up to the top of the screen to change tabs this black band comes down and hovers over them so I can't access them. It's making everything incredibly slow! Does anyone know how I can get it to go back to how it was before?

    Hello translator82,

    See if this may help to toggle Chrome back to desktop mode.
