Users can set Google as the homepage by clicking "Chrome Menu" at the top of the browser window and then going to "Appearance" and "Show Home Button." There, a user can choose his or her homepage.
A homepage should not be confused with a start-up page. The homepage is the page a user is taken to when he or she hits the "Home" button on the browser. A startup page is the page that appears when Chrome is first opened.
Some homepages cannot be set, especially if a computer is on a local network such as at school or at the office.
