I was surfing the net trying to get some insight into chrome, since it is new for me. SOMEWHERE, I came across a suggestion, that causes "settings" to open in its own window, instead of a new tab. I tried it, and it worked, After a while, I realized, that when I open history, or extensions, the "settings" link is no longer on the left side of the page. On the settings page, there are no longer links for history and extensions.

 

:oopsign:

 

So I want to change it back, to open normally in a tab. Unfortunately, I have no idea how I did this, so I can't reverse it! I am sure that it was not related to adding any extension or plug-in either. Does anyone here know anything about how I may have done this. I usually bookmark a page if I try a suggestion from that page. But this time I didn't. Yes, I learned the moral about following "suggestions", It turns out that this one is not very well known. I keep doing searches, but I'm not finding anything.

 

There's all kinds of posts about chrome opening windows instead of tabs - but it's all tabs that are affected, and it wasn't a choice made by the user. In my case I actually CHANGED something somewhere to get this great feature - just for "settings"!  

 

Any chrome gurus out there with advice (other than reset chrome to original settings)?  

 

Thank you.
