By default, Google Chrome shows you a company search bar and the four pages you visit most frequently as a home page, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Today we will see how you can change the home page of Google Chrome by any other.
If the first thing you do when you open the browser is to open the same Web page, why not configure it as a home page? This way you can return to it by pressing the home button. It can also be useful to change this page if you use a search engine other than Google, like for example DuckDuckGo.
Your favorite pages, the first
To change the page that opens just open Google Chrome you must go to your settings. You can do this you must click on the Options menu (1) represented by three points in vertical and then choose Settings (2) from the menu.
Google Chrome allows you to configure not only one, but several startup pages, so that the configuration is somewhat more complex than in other browsers, where changing the home page implies changing a text field. Here the first thing to do is to choose the option open a specific page or a set of pages.
It is possible that Google Chrome already has some pages added in this section. Clicking on the Options button next to each page opens a contextual menu in which you can delete pages that you do not want to include or Edit others that are already included. If you want to change one page to another, you can use the Edit menu, which will be faster than deleting it and then clicking Add New Page.
Now yes, type the web address of the Web page that you want to appear as a home page in Google Chrome and click Save. Do not forget to add http://at the beginning of the web address, although the window itself will not let you continue until you write a valid web address.
If you want to add more than one page, you are free to do so by clicking Add New page and adding more Web addresses. All will open at the beginning, but in different tabs. In fact, you can click Use current pages to automatically add all the page you have open at that time.
And also on the Start button
A peculiarity of Google Chrome is that the page or home pages do not necessarily have to be the same pages that open when you press the Start button. To set the first thing you need to do is activate the Start button by activating show the main Page button in the options.
Then you can write the Web address you want in the box, which in this case is only one. Remember: This is the web address that will open after you press the Start button.
