      Flanker: Use Method 2. The 'Default' folder contains the extensions too.

    I tried this because I want a simple way to modify the Google Chrome Homepage by command. Unfortunately every time I run this command the first time Chrome is open it resets everything to the default and throws up a message about how it detected something else trying to make changes and it restored them… So back to the drawing board.

    For Windows 10 Home Version 1909, I don't have a DEFAULT folder in
    %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\

    I DO have a "Profile 2" folder.
    So what is the correct process?

      At Chrome's address bar, type "chrome://version/" (without quotes) and press Enter. Then copy the 'Profile Path' displayed on that page to Explorer's address bar (and hit Enter) to navigate to the location on disk where your Chrome profile is stored.

      If you have setup on your android with the same Google account you login on your PC, then all the profile settings are there.

    I had chrome crash, tried all the solutions, but when I reloaded the default file from the crashed version, it caused chrome to crash each time. So, I have reloaded a new chrome and only loaded bookmarks and extensions, extension rules, and extension state into the default file, but nothing comes up. is there a "trigger" file that will bring up the extensions that I need to copy from the "old" default file to the new one to get all my extensions to work? TIA

      I suggest you install the extensions, because one of them (from the backup) is corrupted and causes Chrome to crash.
