    Chrome Shows Search Result in Column?


    Following a recent Chrome update, searching keywords by right clicking selected text and clicking search Google now shows the search results in a column on the right as shown below. How do you restore the previous behaviour to show such search results in a new tab?

    Go to Sign in - Google Accounts in a web browser. To turn off web and app activity on your PC or Mac, you can access your Activity Controls in a web browser.
    If you're not signed in to your Google account, you'll be prompted to do so.

    On my Portable Chrome 109.0.5414.120 there is a flag to set Enable, Disable or Default which could control that behaviour - I don't know if it is available on your 'latest' version.

    in URL chrome://flags/

    That fixed it. The default setting must have changed.
