You can restore your browser settings in Chrome at any time. You might need to do this if apps or extensions you installed changed your settings without your knowledge. Your saved bookmarks and passwords won’t be cleared or changed.
1) Open Chrome.
2) In the top right, click the icon you see: Menu Menu or More More.
3) Click Settings.
4) At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
5) Under the section “Reset settings,” click Reset settings.
6) In the box that appears, click Reset.
These steps won’t provide a full reset. For example, some settings like fonts or accessibility won’t be deleted. To completely delete all settings, create a new user profile.
