Transcript:How to Change Your Chrome HomepageHi, I'm Shane Murphy, your technology Guru for About.com. Today we'll review how to change your homepage in Google's Chrome Browser.
Chrome Default HomepageChrome's startup page is, not surprisingly, Google; not a bad one to have, but thankfully changing it to whatever you want is a breeze.
Change the Homepage in Google ChromeTo start, open Google Chrome and click on the wrench icon in the top right of the browser. Now click on options. In the newly opened window, click on the far left Tab "basics".
The middle set of options controls what your Chrome homepage is. As a default, it will display your most visited webpages in large boxes in the center, and your most recently deleted pages at the bottom. If you want to keep this, keep the "Use New Tab Page" selected.
Select a Homepage for ChromeIf you want to select your own homepage, simply select the option underneath it and type in your desired webpage. You can also choose to have a dedicated homepage button on your toolbar by checking the box directly underneath.
Finally, you can control what page opens upon startup on the first set up options. Your homepage will be set as a default, but you can also set it to reopen pages you were viewing earlier, or whatever other pages you commonly visit.
