How to Change Home Page & Start Page in Google Chrome?

Home Page and Homepage button

As you click on the Google Chrome Icon or a tab is opened or reloaded, a default page is served to the user. This default page is known as the Home Page or Start Page. This differs from the start page that gets displayed as Google Chrome is first launched.

By clicking on the home button, you can navigate to the home page. This button is known as the Homepage button. By default, it is hidden on Chrome.

In order to change the Home Page in Google Chrome follow these steps:

  • Open Google Chrome and click on the menu button. This button is located in the extreme right corner of the window and is marked with three dots.
  • Then click on the Settings option from the drop-down menu.
  • In the Search (Settings) box at the top of the screen, type “Home”.
  • Under the “show home button” enable the Home button by sliding down.
  • Select Enter Custom Web Address and type a URL into the text box. This will open your preferred web page as you press home button.
  • Now you can continue using Google Chrome normally, as the changes are saved automatically.
