When I try to start Gmail from Google Chrome browser on one of my notebooks instead of loading gmail I am told the requested URL was not found on this server. Error 400.  What should I do to correct this?

Hi Humphrey,

 

  1. click on Google Chrome Settings  - 3 dots found on top right of screen 
  2. go down and click on the option for Settings
  3. scroll down to the last option Advanced and click

I feel Google has become very aggressive and does things you don't need down.  This where you can manuall control what Google does.

Hi KCav, and thank you for trying to help me.  I dont know what to do once I am in the advanced bit.

 

Am I allowed to attach a photo (screen snip) of what notice comes up when I try to get into a site from my normal google search?  I dont know how to attach on here?

Web search engines are very handy for turning up hundreds of sets of step-by-step directions for common faults such as this one:

Hi Humphrey,

 

britechguy is right, Google Search is very handy - the problem with finding the exact solution is the time it takes - I went to Google Advance Settings and started turning things off until Error 400 went away.   In 1955 none of these problems existed -  the world has gone crazy.

britechguy is right, Google Search is very handy - the problem with finding the exact solution is the time it takes 

 

Several things:

 

1.  Looking through web search results usually (not always, but usually) cuts down on the time you spend on an issue "throwing switches willy-nilly hoping that something will work."

 

2.  The vast majority of us who are in the technology servicing business do web searches and start scanning through the results when we encounter issues we have not encountered before because of the time it saves.   Contrary to widely-held opinion, which some tech geeks try to nurture rather than disabuse, we do not "know everything" or have all the answers in our heads.

 

3.  When we have a problem we've encountered that doesn't seem to have anyone that's put any sort of solution for online, we will post on blogs, in forums such as these, etc., outlining what we did to arrive at a solution.   It's a way of giving back to the cyber community on which we depend and it makes you (for most yous, anyway) feel good to know that you are likely going to be helping someone else avoid tearing their hair out.

 

I get why people ask questions, as I do, too.  But I generally always do a web search with my favorite search engine to see if that question has been asked before prior to asking it almost anywhere.  When I make the very rare exception to that personal rule, I always preface it with, "I know this is probably out there somewhere, but I'm being lazy and hoping someone knows off the top of their head . . ."
