If you move your mouse up to the top of your screen in Chrome, does a black bar come down to obscure the tabs? Is it super, dooper annoying? Yeah, it is.
The problem is that you are using Chrome in “Windows 8 mode”. There is no good reason to use Chrome in that mode, so here’s how to fix it.
- Open Chrome.
- Click on the three bar thingy at the top right of the screen that lets you see the options for Chrome.
- At the bottom you will see “Relaunch Chrome in Desktop Mode”. Click it.
From now on, Chrome will launch in regular desktop mode unless you switch it back to Windows 8 mode. No more stupid black bar.
