Cleaning Chrome

Your Chrome browser may get affected sometimes by several factors. Though it’s a speedy browser, if you find something to be fixed, consider using some of its in-built tools by navigating to Settings to select Advanced and then Reset and cleanup. Selecting a cleanup computer will activate the browser’s internal antivirus to locate and eliminate harmful software that can hamper your browser’s performance. In case, this option doesn’t work, select Restore settings to their original defaults to reset the new tab page, startup page, printed tabs, disabled extensions, search engine, etc. Besides, history, passwords, and bookmarks will not get deleted.

Doing this will transform the tab into a small icon at the left which will remain there while closing and re-opening the browser window. Besides you can drag to reorder.

Open Any Page at The Start

YouTube Control

Control YouTube irrespective of the currently opened tab. While playing a video on youtube, the browser will feature a music note icon on the top right of the screen.
