Ever since my upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 10 (and a healthy amount of Chrome updates that followed) I can't seem to get the old running in the background feature back that came with the Chrome Notification Center. I know deliberately wanting to have something running in the background sounds odd, but I liked it because I got the notifications from installed extensions even after I had closed every browser window. Additionally, it made the browser itself open faster (e.g. not having to re-initiate all extensions after an accidental close).
Is this something that has to do with Windows 10 or this functionality was removed from Chrome itself? And if neither, how can I get it back?
The Chrome icon is not in the notification area, and the option to allow running apps in the background is checked. Those were the suggestions I found on my own when searching for a solution, but it did not help.
