Tip of the Week: Set Your Homepage(s) in Chrome
We all have our favorite websites that we access all the time. Google Chrome makes it easy to set your favorite to the Home button in the browser window, allowing you to quickly make it back to your home page with a single click. Sure, you could just add a new bookmark and click that, but it’s just not the same as clicking on the Home button.
How to Set Your Homepage in Chrome
To set your homepage, you’ll first have to open up your Chrome settings. You can access these by clicking on the three-dot menu in the top right corner of your browser window. From here, select Settings.
Next, you’ll see the option for Appearance on the left side of the screen. Click it and you’ll see a couple of options appear in the right column. Depending on your browser’s current settings, you might see that the Home button is currently turned off. Simply click the slider to change the settings, then note the two options which appear.
Now you can change the behavior of the Home button. You can either set it to show a New Tab page or a specific URL. We recommend you pick a website you frequently use so you can quickly and efficiently navigate to it. Now, you should see a little house-like icon next to the address bar that you can click on to get right to your home page.
Say, for example, you were to work with Computerware, you could put our service portal as your home screen so you can always get in touch with us when you need to!
That’s all there is to it to change your Home screen. What other tips do you want to see us cover? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
