Windows 10: Tooltips not showing in Chrome

    Tooltips not showing in Chrome

    For a while now I've noticed that Chrome isn't showing tooltips anywhere. Either when hovering over links or images. I am not sure what's preventing them from showing.

    I have had that in the past, try clearing your cache / SHIFT + F5 / CTRL + F5

    See if that helps.

    That worked, thanks. I suspect I'll have to keep doing this occasionally.

    [edited post but I was careful not to name any, I've been stung by that before.]

    I know this post is fairly old now but I am still having this issue. I can't even see the address bar at the bottom of Chrome.

    I have just done a clean install of Windows 10 and don't have any software or security installed yet.
