Google Chrome won't accept local file cookies
Posted on 2013-01-31
I'm trying to get Google Chrome on my Win7 computer to accept and read local file cookies for HTML pages on my hard disk.
I have so far been unsuccessful at getting Chrome to work properly with either the "--allow-file-access-from-files" option or the "--enable-file-cookies".
I right-click on the Chrome icon, choose properties, and then modify the target to add the command-line option to the end (after a space):
Save the shortcut, close all browsers, then open Chrome with this shortcut and paste in the local C:\DocDir\index.htm file in the URL window and the cookies are not saved.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Or did Google remove this option?
