I installed Google Chrome in Windows 8 some time ago. Today I noticed, that when I start Chrome from start menu it starts metro version of Chrome. I can only start desktop version from pinned icon in taskbar. How am I supposed to run it in desktop mode if I unpin it from a taskbar?
A simple shortcut to
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe on the desktop should do the trick. If anything it works for me.
EDIT: Sorry, didn't read the question close enough, doing this for the start menu works for me too.
EDIT2: A solution has been confirmed by the questioner: Navigating to
C:\Users\<username> \AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application, selecting
chrome.exe and choosing
Pin to start from context menu does the trick.
