How to set the homepage in Google Chrome on your favorite website
Users can change the default home page and landing page of Google Chrome on any website to open every time the browser is launched.
The default home page in Google chrome is the New Tab page which includes a Google search bar and links to the most visited websites. However, users can easily change it to any site or webpage with just a few clicks. Changing the default home page will add a new home button to the address bar or the “Omnibox” in Google jargon. The button can be clicked to navigate to the new home page after opening the browser.
Users can also configure the browser to open the home page every time instead of the New Tab page. This means that whenever the browser is opened, the user will land directly on their favorite website without clicking an additional button. Both options are relatively easy to implement and only require a few clicks. The process is similar on Windows and macOS.
To change the default home page on Google Chrome, launch the browser and click on the three-dot menu button in the upper right corner. From the drop-down menu, select ‘Settings. ‘ On the next page, click ‘Appearance‘ in the left sidebar, then activate the ‘Display the Home button‘ option using the toggle in the right pane. Finally, select the radio button next to ‘Enter a custom web address‘ to enter the new home page address. Once the URL is entered, it will be saved automatically and the Home button will be added to the top of the browser, right next to the Refresh button. From now on, clicking on the Home button will redirect you to the newly entered URL.
The default landing page can also be changed
Chrome also offers the option to change the default landing page, which is the page that is first seen when the browser is launched. This is the default New Tab page, but it can be easily changed to just about anything the user wants. To make the change, launch the browser and access the Settings menu as described previously. In the place of ‘Appearance, ‘ click on the ‘When the engine starts‘ option in the left sidebar. Then in the right pane, users can choose ‘Continue where you left off, ‘ which will relaunch the tabs that were open when the browser was last closed. Users can also open a specific web page if they wish. This can be the home page or any other website desired by the user.
To select a specific web page to open each time on startup, click the radio button next to the option that says ‘Open a specific page or a set of pages.‘ Now select ‘Add a new page‘ and enter the URL of the designated site in the pop-up window that opens. Finally, hit ‘Add‘ to save the preference and restart the browser for the change to take effect. From now on, every time Google chrome is launched, the newly added web page will open automatically.
