Try their tool.

Chrome Cleanup Tool (formerly Software Removal Tool)
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivi...
https://www.google.com/chrome/clean...

If that fails, try repair & if that fails, uninstall & then reinstall.

So frustrating. In fact I am on IE to respond as I can't even scroll to the "submit follow up". So the Chrome clean up tool found no programs and did not fix. I cannot do the "repairs" as I cannot access the right side of the tool bar to get to the drop down (3 dots) and now can't even scroll beyond a 7" view.

If I uninstall and reinstall will I lose all of my bookmarks? I can't even get to them to copy them as again, can't get to the right side of the tool bar/window.

A business associate also on a Tablet with Windows 10 had this same issue with IE and had to delete IE and go to Chrome. I am having the issue with Chrome....really strange behavior. Windows 10 issue?

"Windows 10 issue?"
Could be anything.

Try Safe mode.

Try System Restore.

"I cannot access the right side of the tool bar to get to the drop down (3 dots) and now can't even scroll beyond a 7" view. "
Try Control - to shrink the window, shrink it enough and the right side will be within the screen and you will have some control over it. (Control + is zoom in (enlarge) and Control - is zoom out (shrink))

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Can you get to the top of the screen? If so go to the bar above the address bar, hold left click then drag the top down and to the left.

You could try Control and the Mouse wheel to shrink the window but I suspect that will still leave the outside boundary where it is now.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Does anyone know -- If necessary, could he back up his Google
Chrome bookmarks by importing them into Internet Explorer,
using only Internet Explorer?

You can backup Chrome bookmarks without involving another browser. Like this:

All browsers have Favorites/Bookmarks backup arrangements.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Derek,

I don't use Chrome, so I don't know where the "Customize
and Control Google Chrome" menu is located, but you must
have forgotten that the original poster's problem is that he
is unable to access the Chrome menus. Maybe he can use
Internet Explorer to save his bookmarks before uninstalling
and reinstalling Chrome.

I know of no way to import Chrome favorites into IE unless they have previously been exported using Chrome. As in all these situations the trick is to backup before problems come along - something we don't always do.

It looks as if you can access the Chrome favorites storage location so it should be possible to copy them out first to a folder then copy them back later:

Not something I've ever done personally. I no longer have anything to do with Google programs so I can't delve on my own machine.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
