Starting in Chrome 69, the browser hides the protocol name (HTTP/HTTPS) and the WWW prefix from the URL when the address bar is not focused. If you are unhappy about this behavior, here's how to disable it.

Open the Google Chrome browser and type the following text into the address bar:chrome://flags/#omnibox-ui-hide-steady-state-url-scheme-and-subdomainsThis will open the flags page directly with the relevant setting.

Set the option named Omnibox UI Hide Steady-State URL Scheme and Trivial Subdomains. Set it to Disabled.

Restart Google Chrome by closing it manually or you can also use the Relaunch button which will appear at the very bottom of the page.
