    Hi and thanks in advance. MS automatically installed (an issue which is infuriating) an update yesterday. It changed Chrome's appearance giving it new colors and different looking tabs. It bugged me so I tried changing it back with no luck. So I restored my computer back a couple of hours before the update. The update updated itself again. The original problem with Chrome stayed fixed but today there is new weirdness. Every time I leave one user and go the other and then come back, Chrome automatically minimizes (just a tad bit smaller leaving gaps between the browser and desktop). I've tried to adjust the minimum to a set size so if I want to minimize it just becomes a smaller window. It doesn't stay like it should. Once I leave one user and go to the other it reverts back to the minimized window it sets (the tad bit smaller one). I've tried to use the Chrome compatibility setting and it did seem to work a few times but then started doing it all over again once I rebooted the computer to fix another issue with Outlook (hyperlinks weren't working). Not impacting other browsers. Impacts Chrome for both users. I feel like this is all related to the MS update yesterday. Any insights appreciated.

    It was already updated to the new look. And doesn't explain why the minimizing is acting so weird. All this happened right after the MS update yesterday.

    Bumpity bump. Any other thoughts? It's now so that I have to maximize my windows constantly during the day to optimize the browser's use.

    It is not the Windows update that did this, or all of use that have updated would see this.
    But of course I do not use Chrome.
    I would suggest that you uninstall chrome and then reinstall it, if you have to have it.

    Nope. Reinstall does not help the problem.

    Did you uninstall, reboot, reinstall and reboot?

    These reboots MAY clear things up.

    Ended up with other issues. Reinstalled Win 10 solved all issues. Thanks.
