How to Add the Home Button to Google Chrome

If you grew up using Internet Explorer or Firefox you might be used to having a Home button on your browser. At first glance Chrome is missing it, but we can change that.

The most common complaint about Google Chrome is that it doesn’t feature a home button like other browsers. The funny thing is, that isn’t entirely accurate. Chrome actually does have Home button, it just isn’t shown by default. But really, how often is the home button even used?


Now that all modern browsers use tabs, it’s usually more convenient to just open up a new tab – which in Chrome opens up a groovy portal page showing sites you commonly view. This quick tip will show you how to enable a feature that you might not have considered before.

Add Home Button to Google Chrome

In Chrome, click the settings Options button and then click Settings.


In the settings window under the Appearance section, select the “Show Home button” to make it appear on the main browser navigation menu. If you click the blue “Set Page” button it will give you a few more options, as shown below.

In the small Set Page pop-up you can choose whether the Home button will take you to the default “New Tab” page or a website of your choice.
