[Note] This post has been updated to reflect the changes that Google made in the previous update for Chrome that stopped the old work around from working. This one now will work as from the time of writing.
After the recent update to Google Chrome, many users have noticed that their bookmarks menu has become quite a bit thicker, taking up more space than before.
For people with a decent sized monitor this may not be an issue, but for those with smaller monitors, this increasing of the padding between the various bookmarks may be annoying as it increases the amount of space that they take up on your screen. However, thanks to Nanderson423 over at the Chrome forums, there is a very simple fix allowing you to revert back to the old look.
Head to the properties of your Google Chrome shortcut and add –force-fieldtrials=”
Now apply the changes and restart your browser. You should now have the old look back and save a bit of space. This will also affect the changes made for the new spacing in the right-click context menu.
