Google Chrome lets you add custom search engines to search each site with a specific keyword. However, sometimes Chrome adds a trailing underscore to the URL, which can cause problems when you try to enter it into the address bar.
Why is this happening?
Although it's not clear why this happens, it seems Chrome adds a closing underscore to some URLs that use a custom search or custom keyword to query a website.

One theory is that you put it in a specific location. A custom search engine duplicates the keyword. Instead of raising a bug and breaking it, Chrome adds an underscore to the keyword and continues as if nothing had happened.
The main problem with this is that the keyword resembles a well-formed keyword URL ̵
If you press the Tab key, you can enter a search term Submit to this site – great! However, if you press Enter, Chrome searches for the IP address of this website. If the DNS probe does not find anything, the error message "This site can not be reached" will be displayed.
Unfortunately, there is no rhyme or reason why this bug only affects specific URLs, but here's a simple solution that only takes a minute or two.
How to remove trailing underscores
You can also easily fix this using the Shift + Delete shortcut in Chrome This method deletes only the entry in your browser's history. You need to find the actual search engine keyword in the search engine settings for Chrome.
Start Chrome, click the three-dot button in the top right corner, and then choose "Preferences."
Scroll down until you see the Search engine section, and then click Manage Search Engines.
If you do not know the exact URL to search for, you can scroll through the list or type an underscore (_) in the search box at the top of the window. When inserting a query URL containing an underscore, look for the keyword of each entry.
Then click on the three dots next to the problematic search engine. If you want to completely remove it, click "Remove from list" to delete it. Otherwise, click "Edit" to keep and remove the underscore.
Now remove the underscore from the keyword or enter a new name and then click" Save. "
If a URL contains more than one trailing underscore, repeat this procedure for each of the [Manage Search Engines] preference page.
This error may not occur This is a quick and easy way to remove a trailing underscore and correct the custom search engine keyword string. Now you can enter the URL without going to one Error page in Chrome.
