    Windows 8.1

    No Internet Address/URL At Top of Page

    Using Chrome
    Version 40.0.2214.93 m

    Often, there is no URL Address at the top pf the page .......... unfortunately, sometimes there is ... I have noticed that the problem ooccurs more often on "Home" pages. I am using this in the esktop" mode ...... the newer Chrome Browser has a "Windows 8 Mode", Earlier, I had downloaded Chrome while still having an older version on my computer ..... I wound up with some hybrid that would only operate as the "Windows 8 Browser" while showing no selection under the tools bar . It was very confusing. It was deleted and I have the newest version. Instead of a URL box , on some pages, I will just have a general description of the website, like "Youtube" or "Eckhart Tolle". I'm probably missing something here.

Hi, As I'm used to having the address bar @ the top of the page, (like it is in the desktop version) looks like MS would have offered an option to do so in the 'metro' version. I hope that some user can come up with a 'hack' to get that done. David :rolleyes:
