When you want to change the home page or clear the saved passwords in Google Chrome, you have to open the Chrome Settings to make all these and other modifications and customize your Chrome browser for your needs. But when you open the Chrome Settings, it opens in a new tab in the same window. It could become a little confusing to fin the settings if you have already opened many web sites in different tabs. It would be a little convenient if you could open the settings in a separate window instead of a new tab. Actually, you can make Chrome do the same using one of the flags in the chrome://flags section. Here is how:
- Open Google Chrome browser, type chrome://flags in the omnibar (address bar) and press Enter.
- This will open a huge list of flags that you can enable or disable to change the behavior or the appearance of the Chrome browser. Search for the flag #enable-settings-window and set its value to Enabled as shown.
- Click on the Relaunch Now button to restart Chrome browser with the modified settings.
- Now if you click on the hamburger icon in the corner to pull down the Chrome menu and choose Settings from this menu to open Chrome settings, then it will open a new window for Chrome settings so that you can make changes to Chrome’s settings in a much more convenient way.
Conclusion: If you feel confused when trying to find the Chrome settings tab in the already populated Chrome browser, then you can make some changes and make the settings open in a separate window. Opening the Chrome settings in a separate window makes it a little more comfortable to make changes to Chrome browser’s configuration.
