  1. Open Settings

    The Settings menu can be accessed either by clicking a button with three horizontal lines by the address bar or by selecting it from a drop-down menu on the menu bar. The window opens in a new tab and should automatically display the correct menu. If it does not, select Settings from the left-hand menu under Chrome.

  2. Change the startup options

    The "On startup" section is the second category, located directly beneath the "Sign-in" options. It has three options: to open a blank page, to open the last page and to open a certain page. Select whichever option is appropriate.

  3. Change the homepage to a specific page

    Google Chrome allows users to open a certain page automatically every time the browser starts. Clicking the link to "Set pages" opens a small window. Enter the URL of the page desired, then click OK. Chrome also has the option to open multiple windows on startup.
