    I think that could have been the enterprise edition I just assumed it was the version everyday users use.

    As for the sticky keys, I have those off and the only time I get a message asking me to turn them on is if I am in my Sims 2 game, looking at floors and walls, and I hold down the shift key for a long while causing the message to appear, but I never turn them on.

    Now for the randomly switching between windows, which happened while I was typing this up. These are some things I found in a google search about the issue. In link number 5, I was not having the issue when the original poster posted about it and it was only sometime after that that the issue occurred. Things that were suggested:
    The Great Suspender - uninstall and reinstall it. I don't use that so it didn't apply to me.
    #proactive-tab-freeze-and-discard - disable this but the flag is gone as well as the replacement flag so not an option.
    There is a suggestion in link number 4, by mac user, I have tried it out and will try it again, at some point, to see if that works in Windows. It's the one near the end of the thread. I guess it meant the desktop icon and not the pinned to taskbar icon because I don't think it worked as it just happened again.

    I am not aware of Chrome ending support for windows 7 I know MS still supports it semioffically and offically through paid support systems for hospitals and such.

    Rapidly switching between windows ? I've had that happen before, but it ended up being a stuck key stroke, turning off Sticky Keys fixed it for me, but that was at least ten years ago

    My Dad probably would have liked that tool as he had routine when came to updates.

    When I was searching this issue, the 2 updates for Windows 10 were KB4524147 and KB1424148. I was just hoping one of those search results I had found had been someone on Windows 7 that had the issue. I know about the end date for Windows 7, but Microsoft has continued to put out updates here and there, which leads me to believe they are semi supporting it during the pandemic. I would uninstall and reinstall Chrome, but I know if I do that I will lose some extensions. I figured what Chrome did was have some code check each extension and if it was still in the store, it would show up in Chrome and be usable. If it was no longer in the store it wouldn't show up in Chrome, but the data for it would remain in the profile folder. I do know at some point Chrome will stop supporting Windows 7, but I just wish they would wait until they are ready to stop supporting Windows 8/8.1. As for the issue, I wish I could remember when it started then I would know if it was a windows update or not. Also, I may have to ask the Google Chrome community again about it randomly switching between windows because that issue has yet to go away for me.

    I havent had any issues printing anything on Chrome in windows 10 mostly because I have not let it update ever since I got a tool called Windows Update MiniTool, otherwise known as WUMT; when active the tool actually entirely turns off the automatic update services and will ONLY enable them when the tool is run to do any updates.

    Now for me, windsows 10 updates, on my personal terms

    Would anyone know what might cause Chrome to crash when you click print (right-click>print/three dots>print/ctrl+p)?

    I saw others who had this issue but, alas, they were on Windows 10 because the Windows update(s) that caused it were for that OS. I did try my TestUser1 account that I have in Chrome and the same thing happened. I did try another browser Microsoft Edge (which Windows 7 users got through an update in 2019) and there were no issues.

    Only for older systemns {PXP, Vitsa, 7 {so I hear}} as far as I am aware, windows 10 has full support and the LATEST version of Chrome is SUPPOSED to reduce the resource use by the software. But I have not seen any indication of it happening {ram use for me is STILL around 2GB just to have 5 tabs pinned and 2 extra tabs for researching stuff}
    pretty sure RAM usage also depends on how many extensions you might have running in your browser...I have a few for ad blocking and digital coin miner script blocking

    The other thing you can do, if you should have any issues in the future, is this:

    Go to Users > Name of PC > AppData > Local > Google > User Data

    In there, is a folder called Default and it can be renamed to something like Default_back-up. What that will do is allow Chrome to create a new default profile, and if everything is working with the new profile, then you will know that it was something in the previous profile causing the issue. That way you only have to uninstall and reinstall as a last resort. Just make sure all the extensions you are using are still in the store because if they are not, Chrome will ignore it and it won't show up at all when you go to add everything back.

The first time I tried to uninstall it, it said I had to close the windows I had open and try again. Problem with that was that there weren't any visible windows open. So I signed out of my computer, and logged back in, and it shut them down for me so I could re-install Chrome.

    However, my BIL also told me that they may have stopped supporting Chrome as well in some way. Have any of you heard about this?

    My latest issue with chrome, if you want to know of it, has actually been fixed when they started doing a "Trending Searches" thing from the omnibox. For me it was a weird blast from the past when yahoo once had that so long ago back when Yahoo also had the 5Line phone company {5 cents a minute through yahoo apparently}

    Thankfully it only lasted about a week before they set it to automatically be OFF

    though the high ram use thing, yeah, that's a known "Feature" of Chrome, the more tabs you have open isnt the issue now though, its the background tabs that power those open tabs

    I did let Chrome know what I tried in a thread over on Chrome Community called Chrome becomes slow and unresponsive every day, as I had posted my issue there too, so hopefully someone from Google who posts in the Chrome Community responds.

    Upgrading the OS and all that was something my Dad handled and he would have made sure that I got on a newer OS at some point.

    Right now Chrome seems to be fine.
