Google Calendars Stops Storing Password Print
Monday, 13 April 2009 13:51

I use Google Calendar together with Google Sync on my BlackBerry. Today for no apparent reasons Google Calendar required me to type my password each time I launched the shortcut. I use the create application shortcut feature in Chrome to create a link directly to the Calendar. Having to re-type the password every time sort of ruins the conveniences.

The solution I come up with was to uninstall and reinstall Chrome. Note that un-installation alone will not correct the problem. You must uninstall Chrome and manually delete some of the stored settings. On Vista they reside in:

C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome

and on Windows XP they reside in

C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome.

As Chrome is the only Google application I have installed at the moment, I just deleted the entire Google Folder.

Hope this helps someone! I'm still looking for a solution a weather syncing problem. If I have Google Sync on my BlackBerry sync the weather, which is nice, it creates the weather as an all day event. The problem is it flags it as busy, so any other additions you make to your calendar show a warning that they conflict with another event which is the weather.
