  1. I have no idea why but the Google Keep extension refuses to add to my Chrome browser. I made sure that Chrome was updated to the latest version but it still refuses to add. It downloads for a while and suddenly stops and a message pops up saying it failed
    Please, could you help me? What else can I try to add the extension?
