A while ago, I did something unknowingly (I happenned to some key with Ctrl pressed). First, it did like it was zooming in. Then I tried to zoom out with Ctrl + - and the next time (now) I opened it it displays just a plain white. I didn't get any options to reset to default settings. I'm using Chrome V19.

    Would be best if you could take the time to write your question. This is easiest by "editing" the other question, copying the text, and pasting this edited question. – Chris K Jun 20 '12 at 16:08

Same thing happened to me but I finaly found the files that contain the settings for the inspector. Just go to \AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage and delete these two files :


And you're done.

In my case, my Chrome Theme is not compatible with Developer Tools I guess. I change to another theme then it works.


Probably, may be developer tools out of the screen. İf you using windows

Taskbar->Developer Tools icon click-> Application review-> windows+right button


Taskbar->Developer Tools icon click-> Application review right click->Move-> move to screen with arrow buttons

This worked for me.

  1. Uninstall chrome
  2. Go to AppData\Local\Google
  3. Delete Chrome folder

Note: Deleting these files alone did not work for me

  • chrome-devtools_devtools_0.localstorage
  • chrome-devtools_devtools_0.localstorage-journal
