Are you tired of having to change your browser from whatever your home page is to visit the Google page? Do you want to automatically open the Google homepage every time you use your browser? There is a very simple way to do it, regardless of what your browser is.
(Take advantage and also consult our guide of the best browsers).
If your idea of a homepage is more similar to “Any page that opens when Edge starts,” this is the fastest way to set it up.
Step 1: Open an Edge window and select More actions (the dots in the upper right corner of the screen) and then Configuration.
Step 2: Inside the page Configuration, Choose At the beginning from the menu on the left side. Then select Open a page or specific pages.
Step 3: Once you do that, another submen appear below that option. In this menu, select Add a new page and then enter Google com in the dialog box that appears. Then select Add.
Google Chrome should, under normal circumstances, automatically take you to a window with the search bar and several of your favorite websites, so many Chrome users won't even have to worry about this step. But if you want to configure a more official home screen or verify that everything is still working, this is what you should do.
Step 1: Select the cone of more options (three vertical points) in the upper right corner of the screen in your browser window. Then select Configuration.
Step 2: Choose Appearance. In the Appearance menu, select the toggle button next to the option Show start button.
Step 3: Enter google.com in the space provided when you are asked to enter the URL of the chosen homepage.
Note: This option may not work if you are using Chrome on a tablet or phone, where the configuration options are a bit more limited.
Next, we show you how to configure Google as your homepage in Safari, according to the Google support site:
Step 1: Open Safari, select Safari in the upper left corner of the screen and then select preferences. From here, select general.
Step 2: Look for the heading that says Home page With a space next to it. Then type google.com.
Don't worry here, Firefox offers the easiest option. Open Firefox and go to the Google startup website with the search bar you know and love. Then:
Step 1: Click on the tab you just opened and hold it down. Then drag that tab to the home page button that Firefox uses in the taskbar: it looks like a small house and it's hard to miss.
Step 2: A quick notification will appear asking if you really want to set this as your homepage. Select S and you are already.
Step 3: If you want to remove and replace the current homepage options more directly, click on the three-line menu button and go to Options. From here, select the tab Start and look for the section New windows and tabs and select the button Restore Defaults that should be close and that erase any past choice.
Advanced option: Set a series of tabs to open
The Google homepage is nice, but a bit limited in its usefulness. It is likely that you already know several web pages that you want to visit when you open your browser. There are a variety of options that you can use to configure several of those pages to open when you start the browser for the first time, which saves you a lot of time.
We recommend that you configure these pages if it is a daily routine for you, you just need to find the right option. Google Chrome offers you a way to continue where you left off, Firefox allows you to configure several pages as your homepage, and Mac computers allow you to automatically open websites when you first log on to your computer, and so on. This may be a more useful solution than visiting the Google search bar again and again.
