Microsoft is fixing Chrome’s unexpected navigation behavior

Media reported that Microsoft is helping Google Chrome fix an unexpected navigation altogether. For example, when you drag and drop a file to a site such as Twitter or Facebook, if you accidentally drag and drop the file outside the area where the upload receiving box is located, it is likely to cause the browser to jump to open a new file, causing work on the current tab page to be interrupted. In response, Microsoft said it has developed a fix to improve accidental navigation behavior for Chrome and Edge.

Fortunately, Microsoft has already tested the improvement in Edge Canary, and Google has also done so in Chrome Canary.

With this patch on, if the user accidentally drags and drops the file outside the specified area, it will be opened on the newly created tab by default, rather than directly replacing the contents of the current tab.

In addition, if you have a third-party desktop application installed on Windows, it will most likely need to specify different file paths, such as the program Files folder default for 64-bit programs, and the program Files (x86) folder for the default 32-bit program.

Microsoft obviously doesn’t want users to put 32/64-bit applications together in disarray to avoid possible compatibility issues.

Embarrassingly, even if you have a 64-bit version installed, some Chrome kernel-based browsers (such as Google Chrome/Edge) have a default installation path that is C:Program Files (x86).

The Chrome development team says it did so to keep it simple, so it didn’t expect the change, and it hasn’t seen any impact on users.

However, the next 64-bit Chrome browser will soon be installed by default in the C: Program Files folder.
