Once you are in the chrome browser settings, look for the "On startup" section. Under this section, you'll be able to set the options on how you want the browser to start up when you open a brand new window. You want to use the "Open a specific page or set of pages." option. You can select this option first, or just click on "Set pages".

Step 4: Type in Your Homepage Address as the Startup Page

Type in your homepage web address/url into the "Add a new page" section. This will change your current homepage to the one you type in. In this example, we typed in our Hompage Ninja address, so that we will be able to see our homepage whenever we open the browser or a new tab. Once you are done typing in your homepage url, click on the "OK" button to save your settings.

Confirm that the "Open a specific page or set of pages." option has been selected. Next, close your web browser so that you can test out your new homepage.
