Fix Your Chrome Browser

I use my computer a lot, like most of us do these days.  It's so handy to check on my web shops, Facebook, email, etc.  But during the past week, I had some issues with my Chrome browser.

First, it wouldn't remember or allow cookies.  It wasn't too hard to find the setting to fix this, but it was frustrating.

Then I found that Chrome forgot that I wanted to stay logged in to all of my favorite sites.  Every time I opened Chrome to do whatever, I had to re-login to every site I visit.  This was so annoying.  

After a couple of days of frustration, I finally found the setting that was causing me this grief.  There is a toggle switch which reads, "Keep local data only until you quit your browser."  This was turned on.  When I turned it off, everything was how it had always been.

If you are having this problem that Chrome doesn't remember anything, you may have the same issue.  Click on the 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, then choose Settings from the drop-down menu.  Scroll all the way down the next page and click Advanced.  Choose Content Settings, and then Cookies.  If Keep local data only until you quit your browser is turned on (bright blue color), turn it off.  This should fix the problem.

If I have saved even just one person some frustration, I am thrilled!
