hi experts,

i'm using google chrome and when I click to open it it just flickers and won't open. I went to local settings\google\chrome and tried to rename the user data folder but was not able to but if I delete the contents of that foler chrome will open but if it's closed it crashes again and won't open until I go in again and delete the contents of the user data folder. what's the fix for this?

Try restarting the browser. Whenever possible, Google Chrome will restore webpages from your previous browsing session.

Did you try renaming the 'Default' folder within the 'User Data' folder?
