    Hmm Shawn having problems with the Google apps in particular the Keep it seems to be changing every other day and the apps "square" now has three different icons directing to Keep.

    Hello John,

    I'm not sure what you mean by the "Keep" and the "apps square". Could you post a screenshot showing this to better see what it may be?

    Hello Shawn some of my machines you have to open the apps icon on the taskbar and the other pic is what you get.

    Now in addition to the this I suspect it is some new feature with CCleaner but I now have to keep logging into the forums and the Microsoft and Google sites after running it but it gets very frustrating having to do this all the time as I store a lot of passwords in Keep because it is handy that it goes across all my devices it is just accessing it that is getting hard to do. .

    Edit: Sorry the pics will not upload in essence I have to open the small bunch of coloured squares on the taskbar and then in the opened screen there are three Keep icons
    1 Look to be an older icon version
    2. The new version which takes me to a new tab and Keep
    #. The blue one which opens up this thread??

    Are you dragging the cookies you want to save to the right side column in Ccleaner\Options Tab\Cookies?

    Yep Cliff have always done that but try as I may it now asks me to login all over.

    But I will check to see what I have got because my usual cookies I have never changed them and I am wondering if the new version did not carry the cookies on over??

    John,

    Do you have an "Apps" icon on the far left of the bookmarks bar in Chrome?

    Google Keep is a Chrome extension that you installed that is responsible for those being in Apps.

    You can remove any of the items in Apps if wanted though.

    Hmm just a thought Cliff I have just checked a couple of machines and the cookies have indeed got a lot less stored than I know there were and I am wondering if it is because Google Chrome is saving the site logins that the cookies have been removed??

    The Seven and Ten Forum login cookies are there and they have been the very ones that have been driving me nuts. .

    John,

    It may best to clear the cookies for the sites giving you an issue in case they have expired or are corrupted, and update the site's credentials if prompted by Chrome when you log in to the sites next.

    I'm surprised that still works at all. it is no longer supported and hasn't been for some time.

    Yes well I used ti as the memo app I was using I accidentally deleted on my phone and this (Keep) was across platforms and has been real good up to now where it seems to have gone down some proverbial toilet somewhere.

    Anyway I am going to find an encrypted way of doing it and just attach it to all my devices surely it could not fall over?? OR could it?
