    Question Chrome automatic updating not working

    and has not been for some time on my laptop.

    Other posts suggest reinstall. No problem with that but how can I do so without losing my favorites and my passwords.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Save (or copy) your User data folder ...

    Reinstall Chrome, then copy your files across ...

    I've done this several times and had no problems ...

    Passwords are in the Web Data file ...

    By favourites, if you mean your thumbnails they're in the Thumbnails file ...

    Enjoy ;-)

    Many thanks.
    By favorites, I meant the ones that are on my Bookmarks bar.
    Can you tell me where they are?

    Favorites is an IE thing, in Chrome they are called Bookmarks and that's why they are in the bookmark bar...

    In Windows XP you will find all data here (including a file called Bookmarks)

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

    In Vista ....

    You'll find them in Bookmarks (in the same location as everything else) ;-)
