Can anyone recommend  a ruler for Google Chrome where I can draw an area on a web page with the mouse (similar to Snipping Tool) and get the dimensions in pixels.  

Thanks in advance.

How does one clear search terms saved in Chrome on an Android?   It seems all the search terms used are saved for autocomplete  even those used incognito   mode, which one does not want saved. :(
I'm migrating my website to a secure server, and there is an issue with a page which isn't loading all the content.  Google Chrome Developer Console reports an "uncaught DOMException".  I'm not a programmer, and don't know how to interpret or correct this.  I've uploaded a screen shot.

The website is under development on a server which is not open to the public.  If you are sufficiently interested in visiting the page in question, the Windows hosts file would need to be modified by adding "".  In that case, the page with the issue could be visited at    Otherwise, perhaps the screen shot is adequate for you to provide some guidance for me.  Thank you.

Changing default webpage for Chrome (Mac).

It is getting difficult to find this, where there are so many features now.

How do I set the default webpage on creation of a new tab?

JS,php,PDO user signup dosn't actually inject data into database, but returns success and shows no errors in Chrome Developer's Tools.
Server error log shows "[26-Jun-2018 18:30:12 America/Denver] PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected 'was' (T_STRING), expecting ',' or ';' in /home/pricelea/public_html/_modules/registration-PDO/register.php on line 51" But I can't see any syntac error here.  How can I track down what's going on?
I have around 12 different Gmail email accounts that I use.

Currently, I have to click on the gray circle with the initial in it (in the upper right-hand corner of Gmail) and then select whichever other Gmail email account I want to open or log in to (or click the Add account button).

There are also times when I don't have the Gmail webpage open and I want to launch my Gmail for an account that is different than the email account that I last opened. So I have to click on my Gmail shortcut, wait for Gmail to load my main email account and then click on the gray circle and select the other account I would like to open.

Is there any way I can simplify this process by saving a URL below my Chrome address bar that will automatically load the particular Gmail email account I want to open? If so what is the process or URL address that needs to be saved within this favorite that will launch the Gmail email account that I want to open?

Also if particular Gmail email accounts can be launched by using a particular URL address then I can have Chrome default to opening several tabs with each tab containing a different Gmail email account every time that Chrome is launched.

Being able to do this will save me quite a bit of time.
Looking for a way to automatically add Google calendar events from a website that is filtered for my state.  This Website Events Page    

I have looked into IFTTT, and general google searches and have not found anything thus far.   I have IT scripting/automation background but have little experience in this realm.  Looking at the page through the developer tools in chrome, I didn't see an easy way to pull the data.

Is there a tool or way to pull this data, perhaps coupled with an online tool such as IFTTTT, that would create /update events in a secondary calendar in google?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Chrome Prompts for Credentials. we have ADFS SSO running in our environment. Previously it was working fine in IE/Chrome/Edge suddenly ten days before team noticed that the sites are asking for credentials. we fixed in Edge by adding the ADFS site to Intranet site in IE but issues with Chrome still persists.

on checking the sharepoint in chrome, we see the FedAuth cookie for the site is showing to Expire as the browsers session Ends, Not sure if this is the issue.

No recent patches done. Patching was done almost three weeks before.

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

I need a batch downloader that can handle a site where the downloads are presented as a variable, as in "".

The site does require an initial logon.  I'm using Chrome, so a chrome plugin would work.  Even if I had to copy/paste the list of URLs, that would be fine.

I've tried about 7-8 freeware packages and they all download the login.aspx page.  GRR!
Hi Guys,

I have a 'www' A record added to the forward lookup zone in DNS for the company website (hosted externally to the local domain).

I can ping from any workstation internally and it resolves to the correct external IP.

However, I am unable to open the site.
Initially I thought it was a browser cache issue, but it happens in IE and Chrome.  The record was inserted last week, but it still gives error:

The site can't be reached
server IP address cannot be found

nslookup gives the correct website address and external IP.

Any ideas will be appreciated,

We have a Windows Server 2016 ADCS server and I am recently trying to get it to generate certificates that work with Chrome extra. But no matter what I do when creating the CSR and adding the SAN names to the CSR, they do not appear in the certificate. It

Chrome gives this error:

You connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from xxx

This server could not prove that it is; its security certificate does not specify Subject Alternative Names. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection.

What do I need to do on the ADCS server to ensure SAN names are properly added to certificates?
We have an own PKI.
I have created a new certificate for some web services.
I just want to get rid of the cert warnings when I open the site.

When I open the site with IE all is fine and no warnings.
But with CHROME I still have this warnings.

Do you know what I can do ?

Is Microsoft Edge more secure than Google Chrome?  If so, why is that?  Will Chrome or other browsers catch up?  Doe it make sense to use Edge since is ships with Win 10 and may be more seamlessly integrated with Windows Defender?  Looking to reimage some pcs in a small private school and I want to increase our security as transparently as possible.
If I have web pages stored locally on my hard disk (HTML, Javascript, images), and I browse them with Chrome, they seem to be very slow to render: 4-5 seconds per page.

Is there a way to get faster browsing of local content with Chrome?  Is this a security setting that can be disabled for local content?
Internet Explorer 11 doesn't allow me to download Google Chrome.
 When I attempt to do so - I receive a message that says something about this page or site can not be contacted or found from IE.

However I can download FireFox from Internet Explorer  successfully. And I can even download Google Chrome from FireFox.
Note : This is on a Windows 10 and 7 workstation.

So whats wrong with IE 11 not being able to download Chrome ?  And How can I resolve this problem.
