How to remove the Chromium/Chrome end of support nag popup in Microsoft Windows XP and Vista
 
 
Info:
Chromium/Chrome support for Microsoft Windows XP and Vista ends very soon. That's fine, however there's now an annoying nag popup in version 48 (with the final version supported supposedly being version 49) that's informing you about end of support each and everytime you open the browser.
 
 
Instructions:
To completely disable the end of support nag popup that appears everytime you start a Chromium/Chrome browser you'll have to manually modify your shortcuts (create a shortcut if you don't currently use one to launch the browser).
 
To modify a shortcut:
1. Right-click it, and select Properties.
2. The area to modify is titled: Target

You'll need the switch --disable-infobars in it, example:
"C:\Chromium or Chrome Browser Install Folder\ChromiumChrome.exe" --disable-infobars
 
What a working example would look like (also use the quotes around the EXE file path as shown below):
"C:\PortableApps\IronPortable\IronPortable.exe" --disable-infobars
What a working example would look like including the incognito (private browsing) switch (also use the quotes around the EXE file path as shown below):
"L:\USBPortableApps\IronPortable\IronPortable.exe" -incognito --disable-infobars
