Question about Computers & Internet

I would like to put "Watch live BBC News" on the Google Chrome Tool bar the way I did with the original Google browser. I have managed to get three items on the tool bar but I forget how I did it. Can anyone help. Ian

    Yes I had heard this I just found it hard to believe that they would discontinue such a useful utility for the average computer user. They forget that the majority of their customers are not computer superstars.

    Thank you,

    Thank you,

    I have found that if I highlight the star next to the URL and then go to the "toolbar manager" I can determine to put the page in the toolbar or the "Other bookmark". Does this not solve the problem?

There is no feature to add toolbar on the "Google Chrome". Most people are confused with this, but it's not possible to add too bar on the Google chrome. As on Mizilla firefox or internet explorer, we can do so. If you don't believe me, you can still check the discussion board here.. About Google Chrome Tool bar
I am sorry the say so, but I have to make you understand and clarify the situation. Thank you for using FixYa.

    I am sorry, we were confused, the star button is called the "bookmark Bar" not "Toolbar Manager" and this is different from "Toolbars". Suppose if you've opened a webpage already, you'll not be able to see the lists of sites on the "Bookmark bar", you'll be able to use in only with "New Tabs".
    It's good that you have found what you were looking for, If you mentioned is clearer, we would have solved it at the first attempt. Anyway, good luck.
    Thanks for using FixYa.

Make Google news my home page

Load Google Chrome. On the right side of the address bar is an icon consisting of 3 horiz bars. Click on this and then click on settings. A webpage will open. Under the On Start-up heading, click a dot into "open a specific page" and click on "set page". In the box which comes up type the address of the page you want. In your case I think it is
Having done that delete any other address that may be shown and close the settings page. Restart Chrome and it should open to Goggle News. Other browsers will have different ways to set the Home Page, but the above link will take you to Google News no matter which browser you use

I want to remove myself from Babylon search

You may have installed an add-on tool bar / search bar. Click on the 3 bars on Chrome (Custom and Control...). Then go to settings, then to Extensions and disable and remove any unwanted items. Setting also has the Search configuration that you can manage.

Using Ex Pat Shield, BBC progs no longer start and a notice, 'Task failed at step 0: config was empty.' (Or 'Task queue failed ditto' Everything worked fine just days ago.

I have exactly the same problem, same error message. I first noticed the problem yesterday (September 11). Error message appears when trying to watch live TV through iPlayer. BBC News Channel works OK from BBC News website. Live sports broadcasts work OK through BBC Sport website. I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Player but it made no difference.

Firewall has blocked my idm on chrome.........i was able to download vid from chrome also but now download button doesnt apper on works perfectly on mozilla......... but i only use chrome...

IDM (Internet Download manager) or other Download Managers are not supported by Google Chrome. You cannot even add tool bars to Chrome. This is because Chrome is mainly designed for speed and when you add Plug-ins like IDM it tends to slow down the browser.

Add RSS to Chrome

I love reading peoples comments. The first discusses how to bookmark a page even though the initial question was clearly how to add an RSS feed. This is because the first person always rushes to respond without reading.
The second user actually gives a solution, but should have mentioned that at that time simply Chrome does not support RSS feed reader but through URL hacking it could be accomplished their the users solution.
Then of course the third response who always add I dont know anything about what you want, but I know other browser that does. Even though the original poster already mentioned he knew how to do it in Firefox, signifying he has another browser (better than Opera) that supports it but that he simply wanted to know how to do it in Chrome specifically.
People please read questions and only respond if you know the answer.
