Chrome to latest version of Edge Problem

  compumac 17:09 07 Mar 2020

I have used Google Chrome for some time now following recommendations here.

I have now tried using the latest version of Microsoft Edge and find that every tine that I exit Edge and then attempt to use Chrome everything in Chrome is all over the place and I have to re-set it to the way I want.

Chrome remains as I prefer it until I use Edge again and then Chrome goes all over the place.

Any comments out there?

Try describing the problem, as 'all over the place' means sweet FA to the rest of us.

The tabs that were there and have been there for donkeys are no longer there. The whole desktop is different = all over the place.

All tabs have to be put back to the original setting and then every time I use Edge and go back to Chrome my setup is completely different again.

Basically why should using Microsoft Edge and then use Google Chrome Home page? different

It's a non-issue, if you require an additional browser install Firefox or Opera.

Have you set Edge as default since you have been using Chrome?

No - Chrome is still default.

I only used Edge last week as I understood that there have been a number of improvements and just wished to investigate this, but every time I have accessed Edge and then reverted back to Chrome I have to reset all of my preferred tabs. That has not been a bother as such but wonder why this happens.

I don't use Chrome but Edge chromium has the same settings. Wonder if you pin the tabs in Chrome if that would help. click here

Thanks for input.

All the preferred tabs are already pinned so that when I go into Chrome they are there and in the order that I want them. The problem is that the selected/pinned tabs all disappear when, after accessing Edge, I go back into Chrome.

As it is, I think that I prefer Chrome and might not bother with Edge at all, although I would like to understand as to why this happens.
