I just installed Windows 8 Enterprise.
- I installed Google Chrome and launched it from the Windows desktop.
- I activated the Chrome sync which required me to assign a new application-specific password (since I use Google's 2-step authentication).
- Now when I launch Chrome from the Windows desktop I correctly see all my toolbars, plugins and bookmarks.
However, when I launch Chrome from the tile on the Metro screen, Chrome starts but it is NOT synced. In the top right corner of the apps screen, I see 'Not signed in to Chrome (You're missing out -- sign in)'. If I try to sign in it requires a new application-specific password. It's as if Chrome is using a different profile depending on whether I launch it from Metro or the Windows desktop. What's going on?
