Chrome will start but not maximize on Windows 10

I’m having trouble with Chrome on Windows 10.  I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times, but here’s what happens:

When I run Chrome, the application appears in the task bar, and mousing over the app shows a miniature of the window I want open.  Clicking on it, however, doesn’t maximize it, nor does using windows-tab to switch to it.  (In fact, Chrome doesn’t even
appear in the windows-tab list of open applications, though it’s clearly running in the task bar.)

I’ve restarted, I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled – from updated installers each time – and I can’t figure out what’s going on.  Any ideas?

I think I’m running the newest version of Chrome, as I’ve used the latest updaters.  I do use a few extensions, with Boomerang being the last one to have been added.

I’m running Windows 10 Home v. 1607 (build 14393.321), and have applied all the updates the updater would find.  It’s a HP Envy 15 x360 with 8 gigs of ram and an Intel Core i7 processor.

Anyone got any ideas?  Glad to supply more information on request!

Cheers,

Greg
