    Google Chrome Question...

    My homepage is set up as the basic google search page. When I open subsequent tabs, it doesn't go to any page directly. There's little pictures of pages I've visited recently, but I want the other tabs to also open up on the main google search homepage. How do I set that up? Yes, I'm tech-illiterate. Thanks for the help.

    I did that already. And it makes the initial chrome page open as google.com, and if I open up a whole new browser session, it'll open that up as google.com. But those steps do not make each tab I open up as google.com. Instead, the new tab next to google.com just shows little pictures of pages I visited recently. If I open up ten tabs in one chrome browser session, I want all of them to open up as google.com.

    Basically, I need to cheat on a timed online exam tomorrow. And every second counts. I need multiple tabs opening up as quickly as they can open right onto google.com where I can enter into the search field with no time to waste.

    When you open a new tab and it shows all those little windows, there should be an arrow pointing to the right (on right side) about middle of the page height. Click that arrow (looks like a big sized < or >) and the "blank" tab page will "slide" the other one out. (could be left side as well, but probably on right)

    Lets you toggle between your preferences (either all the little "past visits" windows or the one big google window).

    I see that, and it does take me to four choices (google search being one of them). However, I still have to click the arrow, then click on google search icon, and then it'll allow me to enter into the search field. Any way to have that just all happen automatically when I click on the new tab?

    The only thing I can tell you then is check your settings (click small 3-bar icon (or could be cog icon) in upper right, select "settings" in menu list, then make sure "On Startup" you have "new tab" selected.)

    I'm not sure why you get 4 choices (I've always gotten only the 2 I mention). Possibly you set a default startup page(s) in the "On startup" section, or there's an extension forcing other choices (there's a way to get rid of extensions, I can put that here but for now nah).

    As far as "search", you can actually get to the Google "search" window page and make that your "on startup" default. However I've just gotten used to seeing the blank Google page (w/o a "search" box) and put my search item directly in the URL (something Chrome wanted users to do by default). Once I got used to that I really felt like the "search box" window was redundant).

    If you really want that window, set it as default on startup (sounds like you're getting it anyway when you open Chrome for the first time per session). Not sure how to eliminate the other 2 choices. But for me, once I click that right (or left) arrow, all the subsequent new tabs do what I want (i.e. pop up with the big blank window).

    Are you sure that just selecting the choice you prefer of the 4 doesn't allow all following tabs to pop up like you want?

    not clearly, because i have the same experience. as far as i can tell, there's no option to set a new tab to any specific page. it opens to the blank chrome page, not your home page.

    Memorize this key sequence:

    Ctrl-t Ctrl-k whatever you want to search for Enter

    1. Open new tab
    2. Type what you wish to search in the url bar
    3. Press enter
    4. ????????
    5. Profit

    I mean...

    You do know the url bar serves as search bar as well right?

    So basically what MDtoTX said.

    A way of doing it - but not what I like because it seems like a little more work - is:
    SETTINGS > APPEARANCE



    Check Show Home Button & instead of the New Tab Page, select your search page. Then when you want a new tab, hold CTRL while clicking the home Button (COMMAND if you are using a Mac like me).

    But everything phdhorn said. Forget ever using the google page again. You can just type your search directly into the omnibox (the address bar) on your new tab. New tab, search right in the omnibox - boom, you end up with a google search.

    alt + home takes you to your home page. I know it's not what you're looking for, but it's a fairly quick fix.

    lot of good shortcuts you should know running chrome. take a look: https://support.google.com/chrome/bi...&answer=157179

    You should download the extension called New Tab Direct. New tabs will open your homepage.

    Since this thread is going (didn't think it necessary to start one previously), is anyone else using Chrome having an issue with going to a new tab and it then opening a whole new window? For instance, when I go to Shaggy and hit new posts, I then "open in new tab" for the topics/posts I want to look at (creating 4/5/or more tabs in my current window). Then (and this doesn't happen all the time and it's not just Shaggy), when I click on that tab, it will convert into a whole new Chrome window?
    Now that I typed all that, I'm guessing just uninstall and re-install Chrome? Just wondering if anyone else has had that happen....

    Thanks for the replies. Obviously there's shortcut options, was really just looking for something tailored to what I'm used to because this test tomorrow is not a time to try out brave new $#@!. I get it, I'm living in the past.

    Yes the same thing happens to me. It had never happened before about two months ago. I assume it's a bug/feature they introduced with a recent release.

    Before you start the test, open 69 tabs and have Google up on them all.
