My Chrome modern UI in Windows 8 has disappeared. I can't find it on the store either. What could be the problem?

  1. Open Chrome in Desktop mode.
  2. From the Settings menu, select Relaunch Chrome in Windows 8 mode. enter image description here
  3. If Chrome is already set as your default browser it will launch in Windows 8 mode, otherwise Windows will ask you to select a default browser. If you choose Chrome, it will launch using the Modern UI.

You likely have set another browser as your default browser.

Did you unpin it from Start?

Hit Win+Q, find Google Chrome in the list of programs, right-click it, then choose Pin to Start.
