How do we disable CONSTANT notifications that "To get future Google Chrome updates, you'll need Windows 10 or later. This computer is using Windows 8.1."

There are a million reasons why certain machines will *never* get updated from Windows 8.1.
The last version of Google Chrome without this nag is 107.0.5304.122.

Sadly, the solution does not appear to work on Portable Chrome, only full install Google Chrome.

Can this be incorporated into the Portable version of Google Chrome:

I am using Google Chrome Portable from at work (the package without the platform)
I can use Google Chrome Portable without any problems (open any website is possible).

in the past I was able to download the installer and update the current version manually.
Currently the installer of Google Chrome Portable 107.0.5304.63 (GoogleChromePortable_107.0.5304.63_online.paf.exe) can not download Google Chrome.
Here the output of the installer:

Google Chrome to drop support for Windows 7 / 8.1 in Feb 2023

Google Chrome likely to drop support for Windows 7 / 8.1 in Feb 2023

That's not all that far away. It would seem that we are heading into a situation that will heavily pressure people to abandon Windows 7. Personally I'm thinking I might move over to Linux. Struggling with the nightmare that is Windows 10 at my age seems not an attractive proposition.

Google Chrome version 106 website problem

Submitted by Vagabond48 on October 4, 2022 - 8:19pm

One of my financial websites no longer accepted version 101+ and forced me to go to version 105 and up. I just installed the latest version 106+ and 3 websites so far are hanging including the financial website, and youtube. Adblock plus also is no longer blocking even after I re-installed it. I normally NEVER download the latest version but could not find an earlier portable version from 105+ on. I had to use microsoft edge to get on the financial website. Is there any recent older version I can access? No being to access youtube is a deal breaker.

Chrome not really portable?

I've been installing extensions and noticed that the list isn't growing in the chrome portable\Data\profile\Default\Extensions folder. Instead there is a Local\Google as usual. It seems there's an issue that sometimes it launches itself as a nonportable? idk I've noticed that sometimes my profile is cleared or just the extensions are gone, maybe it's because of the default browser thing.. idk how to set it as default browser in windows 11, there is no button for chrome portable.
