Chrome built-in password manager

Question: Chrome built-in password manager

I was looking at using the LastPass password manager to keep track of all my passwords, but they seem to have gotten hacked awhile back

I use Google products all the time (just about everything but Chrome) and was wondering if someone could tell me what their built-in password manager is like? Are your passwords encrypted and do your passwords auto-fill on webpages?

Preferred Solution: Chrome built-in password manager

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Chrome built-in password manager

Rule of the thumb for better security is "do not save passwords".

Yes Chrome encrypts the passwords. But not the usernames. The encryption is done using Windows API. It makes sure that only Windows user who saved the password can view them. A hacker who steals your password database cannot decrypt them. On Linux machines, encryption is done using Gnome keyring.

Yes Chrome also has auto-fill feature.

source: Firefox Lockbox alpha by Mozilla replace built-in password manager - gHacks Tech News

Mozilla revealed a new version of Lockbox today, a password manager extension for desktop versions of the Firefox web browser that replaces the built-in password manager when installed.

Mozilla calls Lockbox an experiment to "test and improve password management and online security".

Lockbox is secured with a Firefox account which offers "newer encryption" according to Mozilla. Lockbox uses AES256-GCM encryption and HMAC SHA-256 "to hash searchable data".

Lockbox for Firefox
Lockbox is available as an alpha version. This means that it has several limitations right now that you need to be aware of before you install the extension.

First, there is no importing of passwords from Firefox or other password management solutions.

Second, there is no exporting of password data either, but syncing of date between different Firefox installations is supported as Firefox Sync can be used for that.Click to expand...

Hello,
Chrome browser stores my passwords in the "Password manager". However, some sites ask me annually or half-annually to change the password. But it is not replaced in the "Password Manager", it keeps the old password, and when I try to open that site, the old password is embedded, have to change it manually. Chrome does not open a pop-up window asking if to save the password, as it has one saved.
In the "Password Manager" cannot do any editing.
Answers will be appreciated.
Thanks
Motim

Answer:Password Manager in Google Chrome

I believe you must delete the saved password and then chrome should ask to save the new password the next time you log in.

Or set chrome to never save passwords and use a better password manager like LastPass.

Hi guys,

I'm just curious what is in your mind the best secured or the lesser evil password manager that can be used with chrome.

As I'm using mostly Chrome OS, I'm looking for a password manager that does not need to install anything on the target PC.

I'm using Sticky Password Manager now and while it's good, it requires me to install it's based software on a targeted PC in order for it to be used. That cannot work on a Chromebook which I used often.

And given that Lastpass had been compromised multiple times, could I still trust them with my data as they're still being rated as the top choice as a recommended password manager?

Many thanks.

P.S. Apologized if it's not in a correct forum.

I was just looking through Gumtree.com (local classifieds) for a friend who wanted to buy a car, and then a virus pop-up just came out of no where without me having to click anything.

I knew it was a virus right away, but wanted to see how far the attackers went in terms of making it seem realistic. I clicked the fake window to drag it out of the way so I could see the fake scan going on behind it, and it moved a little bit and downloaded the virus automatically. Luckily, Chrome is a little smarter then the hackers.

Yes, it does and probably always will.

I have always been a faithful Google Chrome user, but just recently I had a Windows update for my PC (Running Win8) and well, my download and upload speeds have been down for Chrome. I have been testing on Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test a lot recently and ever since I had had my last Windows update, I have dropped from an average of 15-20mb/s to 6-10mb/s. I have cleaned out my cache and deleted my history (which usually helps me load Youtube vids when they start buffering a lot) and that has done nothing. I don't have a single add-on to Chrome either. Just recently I installed IE10 and I was surprised to find that not only my ping was cut in 1/4, but my speeds were ranging from 18-22mb/s again.

Also, I checked the date when I downloaded the update for Windows and checked my tests on Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and the numbers matched perfectly. I started getting a waay lower average after that date, and I have never had a problem with this before then. I asked a friend to test it on his computer and he said the same thing where Chrome was running much slower.

Any thoughts?

Is there a way to make Google Chrome Canary Build the default web browser? It can't be done from within Chrome CB itself. I use as my only web browser at the moment. If it can't be done, what would others prefer to use; IE8 or Firefox? Before I get suggestions for 20 different browsers, IE8 and FF are the only two I'm considering at the moment.

Answer:Make Chrome Canary Built Default Browser

Hey Petey, I've done a little researching on this and It can't be done...yet, As it says so here: Google Canary Build Default Browser. I prefer to use IE because it works flawlessly for me and works a lot better with Hotmail or any Microsoft related sites. But many others would disagree... Browsing with IE is great! It's not slow or anything, it works just fine. If you want a fast browser, I say go for Google Chrome, Opera 10 or Firefox. If you want secure browsing, IE is the way to go. So I say, go for IE8!

My computer was running slow so I went to my task manager and seen a whole bunch of Google Chrome processes running. I was confused at first because I don't even have Google Chrome installed. As I tried to stop the processes one at a time, more only popped up. Then I looked it up on the net, found others yall have helped on this site, and know there's something wrong. If possible, would like to know how and when the malware was installed as I have multiple students that use the pc and this is the first time ever had this happen, would like to know if it was a user doing something wrong by accident or on purpose (is even possible to know, but mainly would like to just get pc fixed!)

I right clicked and Disabled Antivirus AutoDetect (Norton); Downloaded zoek and have result log attached. Required a pc reboot and did that too. Problem is still happening. It also changed my home page to google.com (I changed it back). I also uploaded a picture of my task manager if that helps any.

Chrome's Built-In Ad Blocker Will Start Blocking Ads on February 15, 2018


Google is set to activate Chrome's built-in ad blocker on February 15, according to an announcement the browser maker made today.

Work on this component started in early 2017 after Google joined the Coalition for Better Ads, an ad industry group dedicated to improving the state of online ads.

Earlier in the year, this organization released the "Better Ads Standards," a series of guidelines for what are considered to be acceptable ads.

Yesterday, the Coalition announced that the standard will go into full effect for all members starting January 2018. This means that advertising companies that adhered to the standard will not show intrusive ads that break the standards' rules.

Google, which is also an advertising company and browser maker, will also start enforcing this policy, both in its advertising platform and Chrome.

Chrome will block ALL ADS on websites that show intrusive ads
In Chrome, Google's new ad blocker will block a website's entire ads portfolio if they break one of the Better Ads Standards. A list of unacceptable ads is available here.

For the past year, Google engineers have worked on a new feature called the Ad Experience Report. This new service will scan websites and create a list of sites that show intrusive ads that do not respect the new Better Ads Standards.

Once the Chrome built-in ad blocker is activated, Chrome will not load any kind... Read more

Answer:BEST Offline Password Manager: KeePass Vs Sticky Password Free?

It looks like you want to use them for online form-filling. I would use neither of them, KeePass does not have good browser integration it relies on external add-ons and opens one port just for form filling.It is good for offline secure storage.Sticky Password free is good but does not offer anything extra other than the passwords(for my use).If you are using Sticky password it is good for onlline auto-logins.

This question by it's nature can probably be best answered by one the the administrators.I recently had my laptop stolen.  It was found by Police and has been returned to me.  On turning it on see that the thief has activated/changed the HDD password, so I cannot use the laptop.  How do you go about legally resetting it. I do not want to start an inappropriate thread on this matter, as I know password by passing is not a matter for discussion.  Which is the best way to sort the problem out?

Hi

I used to use bootmagic for many years for a dual boot xp system.
I liked the way it would hide the other inactive OS and keep each OS as the C: drive.
I built a new system using ahci sata Ntfs partitions and [even creating a fat partition for bootmagic to use] I had major problems getting BM to work.

Instead I used the XP built in boot manager for my dual boot. However this is not good as both OS partitions are visible in XP with different drive letters and the possibilty of screwing up the 'other' OS is too great.

This is my boot.ini from the c: drive.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Music" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Internet" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

I have now discovered a free boot manager called GAG which beaves just like Bootmagic [but no Fat partition necessary] and I want to use it for my existing 2 XP OS.

I setup GAG to boot into either OS.
However, on the first boot option [which should just boot into the 1st OS] both OS come up in the usual XP bootlist.
The second boot option says ntldr is missing.
Now I know the Microsoft way of dual boot is different to the BM & GAG way.

What do I have to change to use my existing 2 OS partitions in the traditional seperate Bootmagic & GAG way ?

Hello, I received a new laptop for Christmas and, while testing out the keys, clicked on what I now know is the 'lock' button above the numpad. It locked the operating system, as expected. I swiped my fingerprint, but when I do so, it goes to Lenovo Fingerprint Manager Pro and informs me that it must validate my password.

Hello, I have about a 2 year toshiba laptop that i have been having some problem with recently. I think i am seriously affected with spyware and virus's since my compute has been running very very slow and the processor and hard drive are always loud. When i work up this morning and tried to turn on my computer it took about 2 minutes to get off of the toshiba splash screen. Then a black screen came up saying please enter built-in HD password. This is the first time this has ever happened. When i try to ppress F8 or Esc to get to safemode of bios setting nothing happends.

Does anyone have any suggustions.

Thanks for your help

Cyber criminals have started targeting the password managers that protect an individual's most sensitive credentials by using a keylogger to steal the master password in certain cases, according to research from data-protection company IBM Trusteer.
The research found that a configuration file, which attackers use to tailor the Citadel trojan for specific campaigns, had been modified to start up a keylogger when the user opened either Password Safe or KeePass, two open-source password managers. While malware has previously targeted the credentials stored in the password managers included in popular Web browsers, third-party password managers have typically not been targeted.
While the current impact of the attack is low, the implications of the attacker’s focus is that password managers will soon come under more widespread assault, Dana Tamir, director of enterprise security for IBM Trusteer, told Ars Technica.
“Once the malware captures this master key, then they can use that master key to exercise complete control over the machine and any of the user’s online accounts,” she said.

I have a ThinkPad SL400 with Windows Vista.  I have installed and am using Lenovo Password Manager.  During the install it sets the master password to match your windows login password.  The tools work good but now when I change my Windows Login Password the Password Manager will not work.  If I bring it up and try to login with the new password it appears to accept and closes the login window, but it does not activate.  If I use the old password it give a login failed message. I had to go and change my windows password back to the old value to get it working again.  Now that my passwords are stored inside the software I need it to work, but I also need to change my Windows Password. What is the method to change the master password for Lenovo Password Manager or sync it automatically with my windows password? Thom

When I launch Chrome, I find 10 to 12 "chrome.exe *32" processes running in the background and the laptop can get pretty slow.

Chrome regularly displays "Not responding", as the laptop struggles to process what should be a simple opening or closing of a tab.

This is what I have at the moment, with just one Chrome window and one tab:

I have 64-bit Win 7.

Also, I no longer get the Google page, when I open the Browser for the first time, only "about:blank". It appears from the second tab onwards and for every other Chrome window and tab I open and shows the frequently visited sites, as normal.

What can I do?

Answer:1 Chrome window (1 tab), but 12 "chrome.exe *32" in Task Manager!

Not only is there suppoes to be a built in microphone in the model, but the headphone jack also works as a headset and I have tried plugging in my iphone style headset with microphone with no luck.

This is more for my information. I do not currently have a problem.

Running 8.1 but would also like to know about 7 & 10.

When i originally got my HP laptop, it blew its motherboard inside of 30 minutes. When I finally got it back a couple weeks later, they shipped it back with the wrong HD (I had bought it with a hybrid and a regular HD was sent back). So they shipped a new drive and sent a tech. He put the drive in but could not install win8.1. Can't remember the problem. Anyway, HP sent another USB and I installed the OS myself. I don't remember giving the built-in admin a password but did create my own user with admin privileges. So I don't have any problem. But I was futzing around and curious. Running net user Administrator states that the account is not active and the password was last changed Oct 2013. That was about six months before I bought the laptop.

As a test, I activated the account but when I run runas /user:Administrator cmd it prompts for a password. If I just press return (i.e. no password), it fails. I don't think I set a password during installation and the date would seem to agree. So while I could reset the password, it would be nice if as an administrator myself, I could recover the password for the built-in account.

Hello!

I have an unusual problem, which has caused me to not have admin access on my own computer. Recently, I noticed that my personal account did not have full privileges on my computer despite it being the only account on it. I activated the built-in admin account with elevated privileges in the hopes of fixing this problem, and also gave this account its own password just to be safe. I also fiddled around with the account, seeing if I could disable it just as easily (I couldn't, but that's the least of my worries at the moment).

I changed my personal account into one with no admin rights, confident that I could change it back at any time with the built-in admin account. Then, when I tried to login with the admin account I noticed the password I set didn't work. I even tried a couple of variations of it, but I'm pretty sure that I used the correct one. Essentially, I'm locked out of my computer as my personal account only has standard rights at the moment. I know the password probably reset itself when I tried to disable the account, is it possible these admin accounts have a default password they reset to in these cases?

Any help is appreciated, this is the first time I'm locked out of my own computer like this.

Answer:Satellite Pro 6100 - "Built-in HDD Password" error at startup

Hi Khurram,

Sadly I think you will need to replace your hard drive. If your notebook is definitely asking for a hard drive password then there is no way of bypassing this and the only way that I know of recovering this situation is to send the hard drive to a specialist company who specialise in this kind of recovery (usually for forensic puposes, Police, armed forces, etc.). This can prove quite expensive.

The easiest (and cheapest) option would be for you to replace the hard drive and then restore your system and data (either from a backup if you have one, or else from the Toshiba recovery discs).


regards,

Hi, I'm wondering if there is a way to store some sensitive documents (pdfs, docxs, etc) in a password protected and encrypted folder or container (such as .iso or .vhd) that allows for adding or editing the contained files without having to create a new password protected container? I want to keep important documents in my OneDrive so that they don't get lost, but I want to have some form of additional level of security on them.

I have Windows 8.1 non-pro so bitlocker and GPE is not an option, and I'd like to avoid using a third party solution because I'm concerned about not being able to unlock my files if the application is no longer available or incompatible or something. Macs *spit* have a native means of creating encrypted disk images which can then be mounted and used like a normal volume, but for Windows the closest equivalent is a Pro or Enterprise edition exclusive

First I assigned a 9 character long BIOS password via the Security Assist utility of my new Toshiba Portege M400 (M400-139) with Windows XP Tablet Edition.
It asked me if I also want to use the same password "repeated" to cover the 22 or so (I don't remember) characters long HDD password, and I said ok.
Then, I removed the BIOS password. But couln't be able to remove HDD password.

Then I created another password which was 1 character long, and removed it, but the HDD password remained.
When I rebooted the system, it asked me the "Built-in HDD Password".
I tried entering both the 9 and 1 character long passwords but it says "Not certified". What should I do?

Should I write tha password over and over again until it reaches 22 or so characters long?
If it is the problem, then, how many characters long?
I also think that the keyboard layout mapping may be a problem.

I never changed the layout but maybe the factory default is different from the windows one.
But I only used numbers and international standart letters.

I need immediate help.
All my work is halted.

Answer:Portege M400 doesn't accept built-in hdd password at boot

I don?t know if you have inserted the right HDD password or not but the message ?Not certified? said that the inserted password is definitely not correct.
Someone said that the message ?Not certified? could appears if you the notebook was send into hibernation mode instead of shutdown mode after the password was set.

But I don?t think that this could be relevant in your case.

One question; did you try to delete the HDD password from the Toshiba Password utility or in the BIOS?

Please check if you can change/delete in the BIOS because I found the info in the M400 user manual that you have to use the BIOS setup to change, delete the HDD password ot to set the HD master password!

The user manual provide also a info that if you forget you HDD user password, Toshiba will not be able to assist you , and your HDD will be rendered completely and permanently inoperable! When saving the HDD user password shut down or restarts the computer. If the computer is not shut down or restarted, the saved data (password) may not be correctly reflected!!!

So maybe this is a reason why you cannot change the HDD password ?:|

This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine.
Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. ​Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!
Right-click on icon and select Run as Administrator to start the tool.
(XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
Press the Fix button just once and wait.
If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
 
Avast antivirus keeps popping up with a message that it has shielded my computer from an executable file named yogozjvdaoeg.exe 
I have searched online for references to this, and cannot find a thing.
 
Chrome had also begun launching itself randomly. 
I went into Task Manager and discovered 12 instances of this file running, with a reference to Google Chrome.  I tried ending these processes, and for every one I ended, another one (or more) would start immediately.  
I have uninstalled Google Chrome, and still these processes are running, with no way to end them. 
I tried using Taskkill, but again, for every instance killed, a whole new set would start up immediately.
 
I went to the file location (see image) and tried manually deleting it, but it states that Chrome is running, so it cannot be deleted.  Chrome is not running, it has been uninstalled.

 
Is this a Chrome thing, or could it be malware?  I ran Malwarebytes, and it did not find anything.
 
Thank you for any help you can give.

Hi , I have been in this forum last month as I was having some problems with my toshiba laptop, it was sent to to the service center and it is now back and I started it using yesterday.
After I did a CLEAN INSTALL as told in this forum , My is working great.
It looks light, loads quick and is quite fast.
Now When I was looking into TASK MANAGER today , I noticed something strange,
I had FIRE FOX open and CHROME too,
Fire fox was 1 service in task manager while chrome was 12 , It looked strange so I ended one process and whole chrome browser shut down, then I re opened it and it again shows multiple services, all using MEMORY too.

Here is the picture when chrome is not opened



and then here is the one when I opened chrome,



Please tell me is this a thing to worry ???
How can I overcome this problem

Answer:Task Manager Shows 12 Process for CHROME

This is a "feature" of Chrome - Each module in Chrome runs as a separate process, so shows up as a unique PID in Task Manager. This includes each Tab that is open, and each Add-on. It is designed this way for stability - supposedly a fault in one process will not "take Down" the whole program.

Its something that can look odd but it's basically a quirk of programming style

I can only assume that either you closed the main process or the system is set-up by chrome to assume that if a user closes one process they wish to close all

If you close your browser often, follow the "recommended usage" on the options page to get rid of unwanted cookies whenever you close Chrome. If you seldom close you browser you should let Vanilla automatically delete unwanted cookies after 30 minutes.
By default no cookies is deleted.

Help me make Google Chrome OPEN the Bookmarks Manager.  I have already gone through the menu, Bookmarks, Bookmark manager, but only a blank white page appears.  Nothing else.  The address shown in the browser text bar field is "chrome://bookmarks" .
If the bookmark manager cannot open and show itself, then managing the bookmarks is impossible.  HELP!

I already tried with ABP turned off, and the same problem.

Answer:Google Chrome not letting us open Bookmarks Manager

Note that Google Chrome provides a button next to minimize, maximize and close buttons. This button is used to sign in using the Google account and the browser uses it to manage the bookmarks and other things.
You must sign in using your Google account and then the Bookmark Manager will return to normal.

Hello, I've seen a few topics relating to my problem but wasn't sure if the steps are exactly the same for each person or if they are customized from problem to problem.
 
I'm running windows 7 and as other users have stated, my computer was running slowly, freezing up periodically and minimizing programs I was using. I checked task manager and at that time I saw many dllhost with description COM surrogate running, and trying to end the processes they just kept appearing again. At that time I had AVG as my antivirus and malwarebytes. Only AVG detected the file but it could not delete it. I then uninstalled AVG and changed my antivirus to Bitdefender and that seemed to have stifled the symptoms although I don't believe it ever fixed the problem. My computer was running smoothly for about a week and now I have a filename uirrvmzweu.exe with description google chrome. My computer symptoms are about the same as they were when the dllhost process was running. They both act very similar as far as I can see.
 
Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

Not sure what this is about, everything was fine then Chrome and other programs started locking up. When I rebooted, the boot process was slow, and everything else was too, and kept locking up. I suspected (but may be wrong) that it had something to do with a third party program that I had just installed called ClassicShell on Windows 10. I wasn't too impressed with it so I uninstalled it. When I tried to uninstall Chrome in order to reinstall it, it kept saying I had to close the Chrome window even though Chrome was closed. I went into the Task Manager and saw Chrome listed several times. I closed all those, uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome, and rebooted. Eventually things seemed to return to normal, but when I look at Task Manager, it still shows Chrome is loaded several times over (see the attached snip).

Answer:Task Manager shows Chrome running 7 or 8 times.

Hi, this is normal, it is by design, chrome loads separate processes for web apps and plugins from the browser process so if a plugin fails or web app the browser is not taken down... much more complicated then this, still you should get the idea.

You can view what these processes are in chrome click on the three bars (far right corner) go to more tools and click on task manager, here you can see the chrome processes detailed. Happens on all machines.

Hi,
 
I noticed a few days ago that my computer was running slow.  I opened the task manager and noticed that the dllhost.exe*32 was in my Task manager over 20 times.  I ran my antivirus and nothing came up, I have both Malware, and Comodo.  I read through some removal logs and found one that was the same issue as mine basically.  I downloaded the Farber Recovery Scan Tool.  At first, I didn't read ALL the way through it and ended up downloading someone else's fixlist.txt that was part of a reply.  At the time I just figured it was a blanket fix for everyone, didn't realize it was for that specific computer.  So I pressed fix and it seemed to work......temporarily.  I also deleted Chrome but it still pops up in my Task Manager although I don't have the program. 
 
So...now I have read more and am going to do this the right way.  I ran a new scan and am including it in the post.  Hopefully someone can help me fix the problem.  I really appreciate all the help.

I had been using AVG & found it adequate. I got this computer in fall 2009 with Windows 7 32-bit on it. Since then, I've been using Microsoft Security Essentials.But it never found anything, until this month.Nov 21, I decided to try AVG again. D/Led the 30 day trial version & ran it. It found 4 Trojans in less than an hour. There was a "buy right now" sales pitch - pushy already; I was suspicious. Deleted AVG on 26th.Dec 30, I found right away that my computer is infected with a serious, really active bit of Malware/virus. I don't know its name; it apparently settles into or at least uses a directory in Windows ... C:\\Windows\sysWOW\dllhost.exe is said to be the culprit. MalwareBytes was continuously blocking "ads," I guess they are, generated by dllhost.exe? Try as I may, I've not been able to do anything about it.(Update: I bought & used Malwarebytes in 2014, March thru July I think. It used a lot of CPU while running. Slowed me down. I thoughtlessly deleted it ... at least, I think I did.)The very frequent message that Malwarebytes is blocking outgoing "stuff" must have been generated by the virus itself, as MWB wasn't on here at that time. My CPU was running at=close to 100%. The main user seemed to be C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dllhost.exe.Dec 31, MSE found something!: Trojan:Win32/Powessere.A!reg - "severe, active."

I'm trying to fix my mother-in-law's little Toshiba netbook. They were reporting that it ran incredibly slowly, and when I looked in task manager, I saw lots of browser.exe items that reported to be running in Chrome, but Chrome isn't even installed on the computer.

I ran the Malware protocol, but had trouble getting some of the logs. Roguekiller didn't put a log on the desktop as expected from the instructions. I think I messed up the Malwarebytes one because it didn't happen exactly as the instructions said it would and I missed my chance. I didn't want to re-run it because the instructions said not to. When I opened TDSSkiller, it said "Cannot initialize log". I ran it anyway but sure enough I didn't get a log. HitmanPro and MGLogs are attached.

I basically want permission to start all over and run the whole protocol again.

Thank you for your help.

The native bookmark manager of the Chrome browser is as basic as it gets. All it enables you to do is to search bookmarks, move them to and from folders, and to delete or edit them.

When you compare that to the Firefox bookmarks manager for example, you will notice that it is far superior. From options to sort bookmarks in multiple ways over extensive editing option to the display of additional information about each bookmark in the interface.

Google has released a new Bookmark Manager extension for Chrome and Chromium-based browsers that aims to improve the native bookmark manager.

It replaces the bookmarks manager which you notice when you open the bookmarks in the browser. Instead of displaying folders and links only, colorful tiles and other information are displayed by it by default now.

You find search, edit and import/export options at the top now which is an improvement to the native implementation. The search has been improved by Google as it will include information found on the page itself in the search and not only the bookmark title, snippet and url.

The left displays all folders just like before but with options to display subfolders right away or hide them instead.

The location of each bookmark is highlighted by the tile, and drag & drop operations are supported to move bookmarks around. Tiles seem to be placeholder icons. New bookmarks show a thumbnail image of the site in question instead.

The extension adds a star icon to the toolbar that you ca... Read more

Is there a way to get the old one back?

Answer:Disable Chrome's new bookmark manager page. Any way to get the old one back?

Best way I dealt with such pages, I created on my hard-drive my own default home page, and "hard-wired" IE, GChrome, FF to use that hard-drive html as home page. From that home page, I can go anywhere anytime. I know of no way to go back into history and use a past page -- unless one can copyNpaste that desired html onto the hard-drive, make a few necessary tweaks, and "hard-wire" that page into IE, GChrome, FF.

Hello,

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.

Before we start please read and note the following:

At the top of your post, please click on the "Watch thread" button and make sure to check Watch this thread...and receive email notifications. This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing me to solve your problem faster.
Please do not install any new software during the cleaning process other than the tools I provide for you. This can hinder the cleaning process. Please do not perform System Restore or any other restore.
Instructions I give to you are very simple and made for complete beginner to follow. That's why you need to read through my instructions carefully and completely before executing them.
Please do not run any tools other than the ones I ask you to, when I ask you to. Some of these tools can be very dangerous if used improperly. Also, if you use a tool that I have not requested you use, it can cause false positives, thereby delaying the complete cleaning of your machine.

All tools we use here are completely clean and do not contain any malware. If your antivirus detects them as malicious, please disable your antivirus and then continue.
If during the process you run across anything that is not in my instructions, please stop and ask. If any tool is running too much time (few hours), please stop and inform me.
