How can I disable this feature?

I know it is possible to disable trending searches on Google App on Android. I would like to also disable it on my Chrome in Windows 10.

There is a setting at internal URL chrome://settings/syncSetup called "Autocomplete searches and URLs" which disables trending search from appearing when you click on the address bar, whilst retaining suggested autocompletes below the address bar, based on history.
