    I am attempting to turn on cookies in the Chrome browser, but keep receiving a message which advises me of the method of doing this - "Go to Settings/Click Show Advanced Settings/Under Privacy click Content Settings/now turn on cookies by Allowing Cookies). My problem is that under Privacy the option of Content Settings is not given! As a result I do not know how to turn cookies on. A guide to help me go on from here would be appreciated.

    After you're in the Advanced Settings, open Site Settings near the bottom of the Privacy & Security group, then the Cookies & Site Data entry there. The first toggle is Allow sites to save and read cookie data (recommended) which you should toggle on.

    Followed that through - the problem was the "Allow sites to save and read cookie data" was already toggled to ON !

    I wouldn't know how to add an extension, so no further forward.

    Whether you know how to add one independently does not, as I clearly suggested, mean that something else may not have.

    One must go through the steps necessary for differential diagnosis to ever arrive at a solution to anything, and starting Chrome with extensions disabled intentionally to eliminate a possible cause is one of those steps. If it's not the cause then one moves on to the next thing.

    Check the Extensions area to ensure that you do not have any other add-ons that may be causing your issue.
