Have you guys tried typing this into the address/URL bar: about:about

This stuff might be ver 13+ only (don't have an earlier version to try it out on).

Have dropped Chrome quite some time ago, but the easiest way, IMO is:-

1. Shut down Chrome completely

2. Backup your Bookmarks and then

3. Run the following command from an (elevated) Cmd:-

rmdir /S /Q "C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data"

Edit: :P

The above command also deletes the 2 (bookmarks) files - Bookmarks and Bookmark.bak. Please check my next post for the exact bookmarks location.

Thanks, but this will also delete bookmarks?

Oops, I'm sorry about that should've mentioned it (have edited my previous post.) The Chrome bookmarks are stored in a sub-folder called 'Default,' that resides in the 'User Data' directory.
