Chrome Thing

How can I get this back to old Atom

Let’s be clear: this isn’t any more a “Chrome thing” than Atom is a “Chrome thing”. Which it is, since it’s built on Chromium. Those are the developer tools, and if you click on Console, you will see the error message that is preventing Atom from loading.

Try deleting the folder .atom/compile_cache/. It sometimes gets corrupted and interrupts anything else Atom tries to do. If that doesn’t work, I’ll ask you a bunch of other questions to determine what’s going on.

I don’t have a file as compile_cache.

Sorry, that’s compile-cache/. I did it from memory and got the punctuation wrong. If you still don’t have a folder like that, try renaming the whole .atom/ folder.
