    I have Chrome vs 59 on my Samsung Galaxy S7. When opening a "new tab" is there a way to change the page from the one search box Google page? Can't I have it open my "homepage" that opens when I click the Chrome icon? Or at least change the look? There has to be something under chrome://flags.

    Please help,
    Matthew

    not 100% sure what you're looking for, but if you just want to change the homepage, go to chrome> menu> settings> homepage. you can then change it to whatever page you want it to be, or you can turn it off- which doesn't open anything, and you'll have to manually open a new tab.

    Thank you for replying seVer. I'm actually in shock because I mostly don't get a reoply to my questions. If I do, its one person and I never hear back from them if I reply to their answer. I'm hoping you'll see this and might be able to help.

    Let me try to explain my question better. Wgen I have Chrome open on my Galaxy S7 and I click on the 3 dots in the upper right corner, snd select "New Tab" I get a page that says, "Google" with one search bar underneath. I was wanting to change the page that opens when you click "New Tab" from the menu. Wgen I first start Chrome, I have it set to open Google Advanced Search page. Is there a way to change the page that opens wgen clicking on the "New Tab" selection under the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner of Chrome?

    Gotcha... and no, there doesn't appear to be a way to do this. Homepage only really matters for the first tab opened/created. Anything after that is Google.

    No settings to change that I'm afraid
