You can set a default page in Chrome in a few ways, and the steps work the same for both Mac and Windows.
If you want to set up your home page, you can introduce a Home button on, which works like on any website. It will appear next to the Refresh button next to the address bar. Clicking on it will take you back to a specified website or default New Tab screen.
Here's how to set it up:
- Click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the browser and select Settings
- In the left menu, click Appearance.
- Activate the Home Button by putting it to On.
- Below, select the second option and type the URL you want to set as your home page.
Once this change is made, it will be saved automatically and the Home button will appear at the top of the browser. Now, when you click on the Home button, you will be redirected to the URL you just entered.
How to set the homepage in Chrome at startup
There is also the option to change the page you see when you first start your browser.
- Click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the browser and select Settings.
- Click On Startup in the left menu.
- You can choose to continue where you left off, to open the tabs you were using before closing the browser.
- The other option is to open a specific page or set of pages.
- With the latter, you can insert pages manually with Add a new page or select Use Current Pages, to set your current tabs to always open on startup.
- The next time you open Chrome, these changes will take effect.
