Hi,
I'm sorry about the issue. Do you mean when opening something from email?

What happens when you open the Google Chrome program icon?
Do you have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, 10, or Mac computer?
Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

When I open the laptop and press a button from sleep mode to start it goes to Explorer.If I click on the chrome icon and then press another tab at the top of the screen the search goes to Yahoo.My HP Pavilion has Windows 10.

Please try:

STEP 1:

- Click on Start -> Settings > Apps -> Default apps (or Start > settings > system > default apps), and set Browser option with Google Chrome.

STEP 2:

  1. Click on the 3-dot icon at the upper right corner in Google Chrome, then click on option Settings.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom, then click on option Reset.
    - (Note: If you do not see the option Reset, then click on option Advanced at bottom, then scroll down to bottom again, then click on Reset.)
  3. Click on RESET.
  4. Wait a bit for it to finish, and check.
  5. If needed, close Google Chrome, then re-open it and check.

Please let me know. Thank you.

I don't see the 3 dot icon on the top right of Chrome?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
When I click on a top tab it opens up to:
http://search.searchipdf.com/?uc=20171007&ap=appfocus45&source=display&uid=d3725921-9d25-40d6-8bf2-a89c8c930337&i_id=converter_1.0&page=newtab&

Please click on any icon located right below the x icon at the upper right corner in Chrome. Thank you.

the house icon below the x?

Please see the two red circles at upper right corner in the link above. Thank you.

Mine doesn't show these dots. They use to. Please see attachment.

That's fine. Per my previous suggestion, you click the icon under the x icon at top right. In your case, you click on the red circle / white arrow. (And remove if shown, and you may get the 3-dot icon later.)

Then select Settings and reset.

Please let me know. Thank you.

I selected Settings but don't see Reset?

After selecting Settings, you may need to click on the option Advanced at the bottom first, then the Reset option should be at the bottom, then select RESET.

- Or after selecting Settings, click on the 3-bar icon at upper left corner, then click on option Advanced if needed, then click on option Reset near bottom. Then select RESET.

Please let me know. Thank you.
