How to Fix 400 Bad Request Cookie Too Large Error on Google Chrome in Windows 10?
400 Bad Request Cookie Too Large Error on Google Chrome, Opera or Firefox browsers is very annoying and it happens because of two reasons:
- Either the websites are using the software that doesn’t allow browser cookies over a certain size
- Or cookies stored in your browser might be corrupted
In order to fix the error, the easiest and the dirtiest way to do the trick is by deleting the cookies and cache for that particular domain. For this, visit the page that is having the error, then delete all the cookies from your browser’s cache. However, this will remove all the saved data for other sites too, including logins. If you don’t remember your passwords and rely on your browser for that, this is not the ideal solution to fix the error. And of course, it is quite a hassle to login on all the important sites once again.
So, in order to avoid that, another way to fix the error is by deleting a targeted mission to get rid of the offending or corrupted cookies. Here’s how to do that in Google Chrome.
- Open the Google Chrome in your Windows 10 and type any of the following into your address bar and hit enter.

- Now select the cookies that you want to delete and then remove these cookies.
- The 400 Bad Request Cookie Too Large Error will be fixed and the website will open in a usual way.
