    Angry Google Chrome Red Bug

    So I changed theme on Chrome (running in Win 8 mode), and suddenly after a reboot the taskbar and top right had corner are red... I panicked, changed the theme back to the default, and rebooted again, but it's still red.... Tried uninstalling with Revo then reinstalling, and it works fine UNTIL I sync it with my Google Account, where everything syncs back over INCLUDING the red bits! Desktop mode works fine but I really want to use the Win 8 mode! Click image for larger version.

    Thanks in advance.

    Change your theme.

    Menu --> Settings --> Reset to default theme
    If that doesn't work, try applying a different theme to see if that resolves it?

    Nope applying a different theme just changes the top bar and new tab page background, not the bottom Chrome OS taskbar thing... And I did reset to the default theme! It's still red!

    Thanks anyway.

    The picture posted only shows the task bar as red, thats not Chrome.

    Check this, right click the desktop/personalize / Select Colour, and change to suit.

    Actually yes that is the Chrome taskbar, the last update gave the windows 8 (metro) mode of Chrome the same taskbar that Chrome OS itself has. My actually taskbar (Windows desktop) is grey. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I tried to replicate the problem on a VM with the same theme, BUT the description about what theme was used is to vague, Searched the themes but theres to many with "red" in them.

    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    It was this one https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...e-app-launcher . Now I've downloaded the Canary build of Chrome to try and the red is no longer there.... So weird. Maybe it's just a bug with the stable build? Anyway, I think I'll just use Canary for now and try the stable build again at a later date.

    Thanks for all your help everyone!

    Nah Canary is a 100% independent build and keeps many of its settings independent. It does this because its bleeding edge and certain things would break if they were brought over and sync'd.
