    After recent update, opening new Windows in Chrome prob

    I use Classic Shell

    After a recent update, whenever I drag a tab out of Chrome, open an incognito, or compose a message in cpanel, the new window triggers the Windows8-style Chome (ie exits my classic shell). For example, when I click "Manage attachments" below, it opens it in the Windows-8 style.

    How do I fix this?

    Hello DB, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    This may be able to help you to open Chrome in desktop mode again.

    Thank you, Brink. That does work somewhat. Although doing this refreshed all my tabs in my Shell chrome window, it also opened the new window there from Windows8-style, and I was able to drag it out to create a new window.
