How do I stop the URL bar from showing Google searches instead of actual websites? 1 Recommended Answer 18 Replies 160 Upvotes

I've been having issues with Google Chrome where it all of the sudden began to show Google Searches instead of actual websites in my URL bar.
This is really frustrating since when I want to go to Google, it will show a search for Google instead of going to the URL for Google.com, resulting in me having to write the entire URL, just to go there...

I haven't been messing with any settings, and I've tried to reset everything to default and even reinstalling the browser...

Does anyone know if there is a way to disable this, or is this just how it has to be now?

I mean the way it is prioritising my searches, where it chooses recent Google searches instead of actual websites.
I've attached a .gif that shows how it ranks a search for Google over the URL Google.com

Hi

This is really irritating. I have a separate folder for my porn on the Bookmark Bar.
The problem is that Chrome acts over-smart and displays the suggestions of my reclusive porn. What the hell !!
Why don`t we have an option not to display my Bookmarks as suggestions when i type something in Address bar? All settings related to suggestions is Off and Show Bookmark bar is disabled. 

Any clue how to stop this stupid behavior of the browser or am I missing something to rectify it?

Thanks
