I am having a problem with Woocommerce new categories not showing the products.  To test what is going on I created a new category called Promotions and put one product in it.  But as you can see I am getting this message.

Here is the product as you can see I have Promotions ticked

When I click on Chrome Console this is what is showing up.  Unfortunately, I don't know how to correct these issues.

This is an active site and I just discovered today that categories wasn't working.  I have disconnected any new plugins since the last time I checked out an individual category.

Please help me to solve this issue.

I have this Javascript function:
function go_mod_price() {
	ne =;
	alert("ne = " + ne);
	for (i = 0; i < ne; i++) {
		if ( == "radio") {
			if ( {
				ppid =;
	alert("ppid = " + ppid);"load_proj_mod.php?ppid=" + ppid;;

Open in new window

It's a small part of a bigger program. The name of the form is st.

Chrome console gives me this:

projects.php:150 Uncaught TypeError: is not a function
    at go_mod_price (projects.php:150)
    at HTMLInputElement.onclick (projects.php:399)

The first alert displays; the 2nd does not.

I am running Windows 10, and all of a sudden I started getting a Bing page when I open my Chrome browser.  I don't see Bing in my Startup window in Task Manager, but would like to get rid of it.  Please help.


When IT Tasks are submitted to SharePoint in IE, and then modified in Google Chrome, they show up with HTML mark up. This is only an issue with Chrome. I have verified that rich text is enabled. How do I resolve this? Please see the screenshots below.
I have a URI protocol handler in the windows registry to launch an application.  How can I test/call that from the chrome address bar?   if I put in protocolname:parameters, chrome just performs an internet search.  I want to launch protocolname and the application specified in protocolname handler.

I have a 3rd party website that is able to launch the protocol.  They have a settings field to launch URL on a trigger.  I put in my protocolname:parameters in the URL field.  When triggered, this website opens a new tab and protocolname:parameters shows in the address bar and the protocol is launched.  Like I said, though, when I try to test by putting the same thing manually in an address bar, it triggers a search instead of launching the protocol handler.
We have 3 PowerBI dashboards which are being displayed for people to see in chrome using 3 separate tabs.  They are set to auto refresh using the Chrome extension called Super Auto Refresh & set to hide the navigation using ?chromeless=true at the end of the URL.

Is there a way to hide the Chrome address bar but keep the tabs in view so that users can not alter the URL's?
Chrome refuses to load ANY webpages on one of my computers. Firefox and Edge work just fine. I have other computers on this network which use Chrome without issues.

I tried changing the DNS and refreshing the DNS. I tried re-downloading and re-installing after a Windows rollback. Nothing seems to matter.

Has anyone ran into a similar problem? Does anyone know what could be causing this? Was there a bad Windows and/or Chrome build recently?
Hi Experts,

A month or so ago I received an email from myself claiming that one of my passwords has been exposed.  Fortunately, that was a dummy password (html123) to a non-secure test site. Plus, My email is Exchange, so i called MS, they confirmed its phishing; I changed my Exchange password to a random one, so th test site, and forgot about it.

Today, I received a similar email, but not  from myself and with a more serious passwords (the one for my banking, etc.), a password that I only know.  Truthfully, i store all my passwords in an email folder, especially the random ones.  Chrome also remembers my passwords.

Both emails are demanding bitcoin. Obviously, I immediately changed my banking password, but has anyone received such an email? What needs to be done - in terms of this email, and moving forward?

How does a website (or podcast) send out notification of updates?

I have subscribed to a sample podcast and see that I do get alerts (upper right corner of screen) on my MacBook. I have not yet verified those alerts only show up when I have Chrome opened, but that because I always have Chrome open.

Here is what I see under Settings as the Allowed sites.

What is port 443?

Does this mean my port 443 is open to alerts from these two websites?

Please let me know how this works, since I am considering using this for my podcast. Or, if you give me the name of this type of communications, I can look for solutions which I can adopt to have this behavior.

Hi There, I'm having a little of an issue with two users. We recently switched their PCs to Mac, for whatever reason Google Chrome autocomplete feature not working, meaning that when users type in information on websites, especially on forms, that information does not come up automatically next time they need to enter the same on the same form. I've poked around with the system settings but don't what would be preventing this.

As simple as this is it's a real issue for users who need to enter the same information over and over in forms. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

Users have Mac OS X Mojave and Google chrome v.70.

We have windows 7 and windows 10 PC in our network. Recently when students searches particular image on google search, it  returns with unsuitable materials that is  unsuitable for a school environment.

We use Google chrome and Internet explorer and Is there any Group policy to turn the safe search on the students GPO.
I noticed very interesting, please see the attached picture PC -1. On the windows 7 PC s when imaged is searched on the Google chrome or Internet Explorer the "SafeSearch on is not on.

But at the same time if I go to a windows 10 PC (attached PC-2 image)  and open Google chrome or Microsoft edge it says "SafeSearch" is on and it doesn’t bring any inappropriate images.

Our filtering system is BLOXX and is hosted outside our network and not sure from where the "SafeSearch on" settings are picked from. Please help where could be the problem, any help to resolve this will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Been a couple years since we set up Citrix and roaming profiles, and I'm not an expert!  Started using a Chrome extension on Xenapp server that is getting corrupted for users.  Saw that says to add it to Folders to mirror.  

Just want to make sure I'm doing this right in Citrix studio policies.

Enable folders to mirror


AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions

See attached, is this correct?

Thank you!

I am trying to clear space in my gmail. I have deleted a load of photos and videos in Google Drive.  Having subsequently emptied the Trash, the space used has now gone down from 30GB to 20GB. See the details of my Google Drive usage below. The size of my files stored in Google Drive is ~3GB. I found this out using the Google Drive folder in my windows profile. There are various folders that have been shared with me. One folder has been shared with me but I have write privileges and so I have uploaded some photos to it. Do those photos use up my Google Drive space even though the folder is owned by someone else? (This folder appears in "My Drive" and in the "Shared with me" folder.  All the other folders that have been shared with me appear only in the "Shared with me" folder.)

The main problem that I have is that I am unable to establish where my storage space is being used up, owing to the fact that Google Drive has no "right click > properties" function. I am wondering if there is some kind of Chrome Addon that would enable me to have this kind of function.

Thank you

I have just installed Google Chrome on my new PC. The problem is that when I go onto some websites they are displayed as text only Which is blue writing on a white background -is there any way that I can fix this? I am running Windows 10 Pro
This has happened for the last two days:
Before I leave the office I hibernate my windows 10 pro laptop.
When I get home I resume using the laptop.  

In the lower right hand corner there is an annoying window advertising "google chrome *"
I used procexp64 to determine that the process is ShellExperienceHost. which is located at C:\Windows\SystemApps\ShellExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy

This pop up looks exactly like a legitimate windows message, which makes me wonder "is it fake or is it legit?". But I don't believe that microsoft or google would advertise like this.   The problem went away after I ran Hitman. This  antivirus program did not detect any viruses, but it did  remove a bunch of adware cookies.  

Anybody have any comments and or suggestions?
I'm following a (newbie) tutorial on YouTube on REST API.
On Chrome I have installed the Extention Restlet, as in the tutorial (where it used to be called DHC). I can see that it is installed when I look chrome: //extensions.

But how do I open it? It's supposed to give me a Postman-like page.
It should appear when I click Apps on the Chrome browse, but doesn't.

Thanks for any help.
I am getting frequently below err message  while watching videos.
The browser I am using is Chrome.

Error Code

how can prevent Chrome Extensions from being installed without an administrator password?

is there a way to do this via the registry / NTFS or GPO?

thx in advance.
I just joined experts exchange today so please let me know if I post something incorrectly.  I have an html page that contains the following javascript:"");

My default email program is Outlook 2016.  When I execute this code on IE11, Firefox, or Edge it correctly pops up a blank email window from Outlook 2016.  When I execute this code in Chrome, I get the correct blank email window from Outlook 2016 but I also get another blank browser window as well which I manually have to close.  Is there any workaround to not have that extra blank browser window pop up in Chrome.  Thank you for any replies.
