Change (Modify) Your Google Chrome Home Page (Step-By-Step)
Google Chrome is regarded widely as the most used web browser in the world. Some users, at times, like to change or modify the Google Chrome home page. By default, Google Chrome will open to the New Tab page when initially launched. But you might want it to open to a specific website instead. Here’s how to change which page opens on startup and which page appears if you click the browser's optional Home button.
Set a Custom Startup Page in Chrome
First, let’s look at which page shows up when you initially launch Chrome. To change the page that appears first, you need to change the “On Startup” setting.
Launch Google Chrome, click the three vertical dots in the window's upper-right corner, and select Settings.
Then click the “On Startup” section on the left-hand side. At this point, select “Open a specific page or set of pages,” then click “Add a new page.” In the dialog field that appears, type or paste in the address of the site you wish to open automatically when you launch Chrome. When finished, click the Save button.
Add a Custom Page to the Home Button
To change the homepage for the Home button, open Settings. While on the Settings page, scroll down to Appearance and flip the “Show Home button” switch on. Then select the empty text field below it and type or paste in the address of the site you want to open up when you click the Home button.
When you exit out of Settings, you will see the Home button next to the address bar. Whenever you click on it will bring you to the website you plugged in earlier.
That’s all there is to it. Now you will have a specific page open up when you launch Google Chrome. And you can have a specific page open when you click the Home button. This can be useful if you want to see a particular site often when using Google Chrome to browse the web.
