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.




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.
