If you use chrome in a Digital Display or Kiosk setting, it can be annoying that you will get the “chrome didn’t shut down correctly” if, in fact, chrome did not shut down correctly.  I was finally able to figure out a way to get rid of that message.

I am using the “C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –kiosk  command in the windows startup folder to launch the browser.  So I simply added the –incognito command as well, and voila! no more message.  So the full command is:

“C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” –incognito –kiosk

    Would you say that again in words a moronic halfwit can understand, please?
    I have an ordinary desktop PC running Win7: that BLOODY message has been turning up without fail for the last six months.
    Can I still use that command ? – I doubt it, as the ‘kiosk’ business means nothing to me.

    You still should be able to use the command (switch). Either
    “C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” -kiosk
    “C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe” -kiosk
    should work.

    But Kiosk mode is really for Kiosk applications. You probably don’t want to run it for regular use. If that message is coming up regularly for you, you may need to figure out why. Is something happening that is causing Chrome to not shutdown correctly? If not, consider upgrading to the Canary version of chrome to see if that fixes it.

    Try the –disable-infobars switch, not –kiosk.
