Clip to ScrapBook #1

I don't know if this matters, but I work on a Mac Laptop and Desktop.

This afternoon, when I went to open anything in my google drive it would open in a new window instead of a new tab on my laptop AND my desktop. It is maddening how many windows I have open right now.

Does anyone know why this would happen and if so how do I get it back to opening into a tab and not a window?

Thanks for any help you can give

My guess is itís related to the Google issues. My answer for everything is to power it off and power it on again. If that does t work, check your settings.

Thanks I tried restarting and checking settings. It seems to be an issue within chrome. I opened my google drive in safari and it did not do this?
It is so weird. I prefer using chrome over safari, but I guess I'm going to have to switch back.

Mine always open up in different tabs. I actually like that because often it isnít the right thing and I donít lose my starting point.

Did you get a prompt for a Chrome update? Mine seems to be playing better with my Mac since I let it install the latest version.
