Google Chrome browser

(Gizmodo)

Google has recently added a menu to the upper right corner of Chrome that provides for management of profiles. It displays an avatar or picture and your profile name.

If you are the only user of the browser, you might consider removing it. If you're tired of seeing your picture and name sitting there, you can disable the menu. Here is the procedure:

  • Enter "chrome://flags" (without quotes) into the Chrome address bar.

  • You will get a warning so be careful what you click on.

  • Scroll down until you find the entry "Enable new profile management system". (It's really far down.)

  • In the drop-down menu, select "Disabled". The graphic below shows an example of the entry.

  • Click the button "Relaunch Now" that appears at the bottom of the screen.

Chrome will restart and the new avatar menu will be gone. If you want the profile management back, go to step 4 above and choose "Default" in the drop-down menu.
