If you’re having trouble with pop-ups, apps or extensions changing your settings without your knowledge, there is an easy fix: Reset Chrome settings to default.  Your saved bookmarks and passwords won’t be cleared or changed as long as you follow these steps.

1). On your computer, open Chrome .

2). At the top right, click More       Settings.

3).  At the bottom, click Advanced.

What changes when you restore your settings
