Recently we ran into an issue with a few computers running Windows 10 where Chrome would not open. The end-users would click on the icon and nothing, they would click faster and nothing.

We tried to uninstall and reinstall Chrome and the issue still wasn’t resolved. Yup, we also tried to reset Chrome and repair and nothing. What we found worked was running Chrome in compatibility mode. Once we turned compatibility mode on everything works as expected.
