Are you tired of moving your browser from any of your home page’s to visiting the Google homepage? Do you want to automatically open your Google homepage whenever you use your browser? There’s a way! From now on, see your favorite browser and instructions on how to change your home page to Google.
Edge offers two different options, depending on what your home page idea looks like. We’ll both give you both.
- First, open a boundary box and select More Actions (the top right of the screen), and then Settings. Then select View Advanced Settings from the list. This will provide a number of options to change – look for what it says, “Show startup button” and make sure it is enabled. Then place it on “A specific page” in the drop-down menu. In the space below, go to Google.com and save your choice. Now, every time you click the Start button, it will take you to Google.
- If your idea of a home is more than the lines of “Any page that opens when you start Edge” then you can also do it. In the options options, look for an option that says “Open Microsoft’s board with”. Here you can enter Google.com for the effect you want.
Google Chrome should, in normal circumstances, automatically go to a search box window and several of your favorite websites, because many Chrome users will not have to worry about this step. But if you want to set up a more official home screen or check that everything is working, here’s what you should do.
- Click the More button, a.k.a. the three points that are located at the top right of the screen. Then select Settings.
- Scroll until you find the appearance. Here, look for an option that says the Show Home Button button. Make sure this has been selected. It should display www.Google.com/ automatically, but if you do not, you can click Change and type it. You can sign in to Chrome and sync settings to make sure the change is fully implemented on all devices.
Note: This option may not work if you use Chrome on a tablet or mobile phone, where configuration options are a bit more limited.
Safari offers you a couple of different job options, depending on how you prefer to navigate, so it’s worth spending some time to personalize the results.
- Open Safari first, select Safari in the upper left corner of the screen and select Preferences. From here, select General.
- Look for the headline that says the Homepage with a space next to it. You can write to Google.com or, if you are already on Google‘s site, you can choose the button below, which says Set to the current page.
- Safari also has several more important headers in the General window. “Safari opens with” lets you choose whether to open with the previous windows as a time-saving link. New open windows and new open tabs let you set them up on your homepage to ensure that you will be able to start with Google‘s search, no matter how you want to open new sites. Choose the options that work best for you!
Do not worry here, Firefox offers the easiest option to reach. Open Firefox and go to the Google homepage with the search bar you know and love.
- Click / select the same tab (the bumper where the title of the page usually appears) and hold down. Then, drag the tab to the right of the home page button that Firefox uses on the taskbar. It looks like a small house and it’s hard to lose.
- This will generate a quick notification that will ask you if you really want to set this up as your home page. Select Yes, and you are finished.
- If you want to delete and replace more directly your current home page options, click the three-line menu button and go to Preferences. From here, select the General tab and look for the Startup in Home, choose Restore by default, which will clear all your past choices.
Advanced Option: Set a number of tabs to open
The Google homepage is nice, but a bit limited in its usefulness. It is very likely that you already know many web pages you want to visit when you open your browser. There are a number of options that you can use to configure some of these pages to open when you start your browser, which will save you a lot of time.
We recommend you set these pages if it is a daily routine for you – just find the right option. Google Chrome gives you a way to keep from where you stopped, Firefox lets you set multiple pages like your home page, and Mac computers allow websites to open automatically when you log on to your computer for the first time, and so on. This can be a more useful way to visit Google‘s search bar solution again and again.
