What is up with the Bookmark change in Chrome?  Tiles, I don't think so, am I missing something or can this be changed?  I hate it, and went to Google Chrome Help Forum and complained, not that it will do any good.  I must be missing something because I don't see anyone else complaining.  I can't imagine all of Chrome users liking this?

Those Tiles has been these for at least the last couple of releases, if you don't want any, just hover over the right area of each and there's an "X" in the corner to delete. You're right, I don't want these, at least in this manner, see more below. 

 

These are really browsing history on my computer, only one of those sites I have bookmarked. 

 

Though I'd welcome a "Speed Dial" type of bookmarks to my favorite sites, that's not quite what these are. Just if you want to go back & revisit pages. 

 

Here is an article of interest that may be of assistance.

Hope this helps and am going to try it on my Google Chrome. 

 

EDIT: I could tell no difference.

OMG! it's back.  I can't believe that no one else is talking about this, Tiles-errg! I think I'm going to have a panic attack.  I guess I will have to figure out tomorrow if I can revert to the last release of chrome.  This is a real bad idea, and, I don't like Firefox very well so what is one to do?

It's not doing this with me when I open Bookmark Manager. 

 

You may have to reset Chrome back to defaults, as a precaution may need to backup your bookmarks, this is a simple task. May have to reinstall your extensions. First, backup your bookmarks, it can be to any folder of your choosing.

See if this makes things right. If you have a 2nd install, it'll need to be reset also, or whatever is syncing with that one will just come right back to you.

Have you tried the solution shown here?  It would help to know which version of Chrome you are currently using.  The image you show appears to be for either a Beta version or something specific for Linux users. The current version for Windows users is 40.0.2214.91 m and does not display the Tiles.

O-boy why me? lol.  First thing I did was Reset.  Bookmarks backed up.

 

I just backed up bookmarks again and it is taking forever, something is wrong?  I shut down the process, I've done this many times before and it NEVER took this long.  I also reported this to google.

 

I don't have a second install, but as you might remember I lost XP and recently installed LMM17.1 don't think that would matter but what do I know.

T.R. Yes it would be specific to Linux and it is version 40.0.2214.91 (64-bit)  Wait, I see that we are talking about the same version, is that possible?  I will go and take a look, maybe I did something wrong.

Just so happened, ran across that same solution yesterday, and the reason why I didn't suggest it, was that I was on Linux Mint at the time, but didn't see the same page on my end (the enhanced bookmarks). My system is also 64 bit, and so are our browsers & some other software. 

 

Knew it couldn't have been a beta or developer build on Linux, though browsers & plug-ins will sometimes be pushed out to Linux users first, using us to experiment & fine tune features for future versions. Well, when we see these on Windows, we'll know what to do to correct this, if not desired. 

 

Thank You for your contribution.  :)
