Google Chrome Version 32 Problems – A Work Around

A minor public service announcement.

We noticed at the office that Google Chrome version 32 broke functionality in certain controls in our web product.  After a bit of looking around, a co-worker of mine found a work-around that got us past the issue.

Find the icon to launch Chrome.  You can go with the one on your desktop or the Start menu (should you still be so blessed) or where ever.

Right-click on the icon and select “Properties” from the contextual menu.  From there, navigate to the “Compatibility” tab and check the option to “Disable visual themes.”

That solved our problems with controls for the time being.  I hope that it solves yours, should you have any.
