Resolved Question

Win XP Pro and Google Chrome

by uhoh_num2 / December 14, 2012 10:18 PM PST

Mornin' All,

Laptop is running win xp pro sp 3. The owner has google chrome as the default browser.

Question: I want to get the "File" "Edit" "View" etc. menu bar to show for ease of use. How do I?

What I've tried: Most of the internet help searches, Chrome Help (yea...right), and am waiting a plea reply from the guys at the win xp forum on Technet.

Anyone have any ideas? This is not my computer and NO! I'm not going to trash a browser on someone elses 'puter.

Thanks for the help in advance

Google Chrome Menu

Google Chrome have menus in Paper Control below to minimize/maximize/close (upper right corner) button to control features and actions.
No other option for the menus.

Jini,

Thanks for the reply and read of the Google diatribe...little frustrating. I'm used to being able to have the tools I need handy. Hopefully, maybe, wishingly (just invented that word), the coders at Google Chrome read this also and MAYBE give it a consideration.

Thanks again

From the looks of it

From the looks of it, Google never bothered coding one in. There may be an extension to add one, but there doesn't appear to be anything in Chrome proper for this.

There's always Firefox

There's always Firefox. You have to manually enable it, but it's still there.

See the three horizontal lines icon

at the far right of the address bar. When you click that, the 5th line down says "Edit Cut Copy Paste". You could also use CTRL-X, CTRL-C, CTRL-V, or just right click. Those are your options. There is no tool bar.

Good luck.

Bob,

I agree...good thing I spent my quality time with fruitless efforts...on the browser that is...y'all - No! Gotta laugh though...think I'll do what you do...sit back and read what frustrations others are going thru with Google Chrome (not all progs are the same...kinda like snowflakes...they're all different)...lol.

Thanks for the reply
