And then I select either New window or New incognito window and see this:
Is there a way to fix these links?
If so, how?
If not, would uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome work or put me back at the same problem?

Backstory (Possibly Negligible to Answering Question)
A few hours ago, opening a new page with an already open Chrome would not load or even give an error page. It remained blank. Internet connection was good so I disconnected & reconnected with no change. So I closed Chrome, clicked the pinned Shortcut on Taskbar to reopen, and nothing would happen. I opened Firefox & downloaded a new Chrome (without deleting old) hoping to "refresh" things and believe the shortcuts would work out then. Not so lucky. But opening the file location of the desktop shortcut, I clicked on "new_chrome" which transformed into "old_chrome" (it just did) which opened successfully.
The key shortcut Ctrl+N and Ctrl+Shift+N both worked but the taskbar shortcut still failed me. (In retrospect, I might've had better luck removing it & replacing it with the "old_chrome" application in that file location.)
So thinking to put everything right again, I'd just uninstall Chrome. Did so (which removed both). But reinstalling gave an error that led to me doing a
chkdskto fix a corruption. With Google Chrome uninstalled & everything booting up normal, I reinstalled it. I can now click on the taskbar icon, the desktop icon, but these Tasks are broken. So now I'm here.
