I had a customer that was having some strange behavior in Google
Chrome. They could not open any web pages or even the settings page in
Google Chrome. Only a blank page would appear, nothing else. I tried
uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome, deleting and recreating a new
profile in Chrome, changing hardware acceleration setting, etc. but
nothing seemed to work. I could get Google Chrome to open webpages with
the startup switch --no-sandbox, however stability and security are at
risk when using this switch. So I needed to solve the issue.
After much trial and error, I found the solution in the Compatibility
Settings of Google Chrome.
Remove Compatibility Settings for Google Chrome
1) Right click on the Google Chrome icon
2) Click on Properties
3) Click on the Compatibility tab
4) Uncheck the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode". In my
particular case, the compatiblity mode was set for Windows XP
5) Click on OK
6) Open Google Chrome again and try to open a web page or the Settings
menu, It should now work.
In case this does not solve the problem, you may have to try some of
the other suggestions in the top of the article regarding
uninstalling/reinstalling Google Chrome, recreating a new user profile,
or changing the hardware acceleration options.
