    When Chrome launches it defaults to Google. There is a search field in the center of the page and some icons below it. 8 to be exact. I have no idea why they are there or how to change them. Can anyone help? Thnank you.

    You can hide them:

    You can always go to settings and set up whatever site that you'd like to see on the home screen.

    you can also hover over the icon and click the X that appears if you don't want that on your homepage

    I'm not talking about the home page. I'm talking about the Google page the starts when Chrome launches. Screenshot_2016-01-29-11-06-52.png

    I don't see how that is possible.

    Yes, of course they are pages that I have accessed, but why these and not different ones? What's so special about these particular 10 pages when I have addressed dozens? The lagoon documentation is frustrating.

    It's not my homepage, it's a Chrome page. Deleting icons and hoping that one that I want will eventually show up seems quite inefficient.

    Go to your Chrome settings (3 dots at the top of the page). Scroll down until you see Home Page. Click this. You can set any web address, that you like, to open every time you launch Chrome.

    My home page just says "off".

    Click on Home Screen, then turn it on with the toggle switch. Enter the web address that you want to show when Chrome is first opened.

    Thank you for the effort, however I don't know what the phrase "click on the home screen, then trun it on with the toggle switch. Enter the web address that you want to show when Chroje is first opened." means. If it means launch Chrome, turn the "home page off" to on and enter web addresses, I've done that. Turning Chrome to home page on merely sets the home page to the venter page and there is no place to enter any other web pages. I'm not interested in the home page anyway, I'm interested in those 8 icons below the search bar. But "thanks for playing" as they say. Paul
