Dear Sir or Madam:

I recently purchased your power tools CD. The Cookie Viewer program is not working. It scans everything, then says there are no cookies found.
My computer has Windows Seven. I'm sure there must be cookies on my computer.

Sincerely,
Craig

Windows 10, v1709

First open, nada:

Full search, more nada:

Also directed search doesn't find them (but I don't think it would on 10 because cookies are stored differently.

Hate to be a bother but I am unable to get the cookie viewer to work in Windows 10.
It does not appear to have a default directory to search (nothing in the dialog box) but when I click search it allows me to select a drive to search then appears to scan the drive but never finds any cookies I know cookies are there since they are found using other software....
Anything I can do?
Regards,
Bill

Various database file scanning should be added:

Chrome stores cookies in an SQLite database file called "cookies" in C:\Users\<your_username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\
