SUMMARY: Configure the webpage(s) that display when starting the Google Chrome web browser.
By default, when starting Google Chrome, the "New Tab" page appears, offering screenshot access to the user's most frequently-visited websites. While many people may appreciate this feature, others would rather display a home page or multiple home pages of their choosing, or a completely blank page instead. To configure this setting:
1. Click the wrench button.
2. Select "Options".
3. An "Options" tab appears. "Basics" should be selected in the left pane.
4. In the "On startup" section, click the "Open the following pages" radio button.
5. To startup Google Chrome with a webpage or multiple pages, choosing them manually:
* Click the "Add" button.
* When the "Add page" dialog appears, enter the URL to add to your startup pages or select a recently-viewed page. Click the "Add" button in the "Add page" dialog to close it. Repeat as desired to open multiple pages when starting Google Chrome.
To use the currently-opened tabs as your startup pages:
* Click the "Use current pages" button.
To startup Google Chrome with a blank page:
Click the "Add" button, then when the "Add page" dialog appears, key in about:blank. Then, click the "Add" button in the "Add page" dialog to close it.
To delete a page from your "Add" list.
Hover over the page underneath the "Open the following pages" radio button. An "X" will appear to the right of the page - click it.
Now, to adjust your "Home" page:
1. In the "Home page" section, click the "Open this page" radio button.
2. Type in the page to open, or use about:blank for a blank home page.
When you are done making both adjustments, just close the "Options" tab.
Return to the Google Chrome page.
