    Laptop Won't Launch Chrome

    Had no problem for 2 years launching Chrome on my laptop. All of a sudden it won't open. Does anyone have any ideas/solutions?

    See if Compatibility mode is checked.

    Right click at Chrome desktop shortcut > Properties > at the top, click Compatibility tab > under Compatibility mode heading, is there a checkmark at "Run this program in compatibility mode for " ?
    If yes, Un-check it > OK when done.

    Does that help at all ?

    I went to the Chrome properties box but the compatibility was already unchecked. Do you have any other suggestions.

    You said " all of a sudden ".
    How long ago was that ?
    If it was recently, do you remember a date you did NOT have this problem ?
    If yes, please do a system restore. Pick that date or even earlier as your restore point.

    2 Years using Chrome without any problem! Great!
    Are you in Windows 10 or Windows 8.1, Windows 8 or Windows 7 now?

    Please remember Windows 10 was not officially released until July 29, 2015.

    Check, if Google Chrome Portable works, if yes, then it is mot likely a damaged profile.

    For starters, try to cleanup Chrome's cache, cookies and such with CCleaner. If it does not help:

    Uninstall Chrome, delete profile, install again, sync should take care of bookmarks/extensions.

    Delete Chrome folder - Start - Run - %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google

    I am using Windows 10 but have been using Chrome on laptop for two years. Anyway, for some strange reason it seems to be launching ok now without me really doing anything.

    Thanks for all your suggestions.
