The procedure for changing the start (home) page in the Google Chrome browser is not the most difficult task. It will be much more difficult to do this if the search engine or the start page changes after installing any software or downloading a file from the Internet.
Replacing the home page
Changing the home page in Google Chrome is pretty easy. First, to do this, you must click on the image of a wrench or gear, located in the right corner of the Google browser. After clicking, a drop-down menu will open, where you should click on "Settings". This is where you need to find the "Start group" field and select "Open one or more pages" for it. In the window that appears, you should specify the URL for the start page from which you will start working in the browser, and then delete the unnecessary start page.
It is worth noting that here the user must enter several addresses at once, which will automatically open after launching the Google Chrome browser. The search engine also changes in the "Settings". The only difference is that you need to find the Search field and select Manage Search Engines. A complete list of possible search engines should be displayed here. To select a specific system, you need to hover the mouse cursor over the resource and click on the "Use by default" button. This completes the standard procedure for changing the home page, but there are times when everything is so easy and simple to do.
Solving Potential Problems
Today, on the Internet, you can often find a variety of files that, when downloaded, require the installation of some kind of additional software. For example, they can ask the user to change the home page in the browser or replace the search engine with their own. If a user sees such a request, then at least he can make some decision (whether to install this software or not), but even more often it happens that when downloading a file, such requests do not appear, but the home page or search engine changes automatically.
The most famous search engine that runs as a home page and is installed without the user's knowledge is Webalta. The peculiarity of this search engine is that it cannot be simply removed from the browser, replacing it with any other. In order to remove it, you need to go to the "Start" menu and select "Run". Then the regedit command is entered in the search window and the "Registry Editor" is launched. With the help of the search form, which is called by the key combination Ctrl + F, a search is performed "By value" of Webalta (or any other similar search engine). All found fragments must be deleted, after which the home page and search engine must be replaced again.
As a result of all the above steps, you can easily and simply replace one home page with another and just as easily replace one search engine with another.
