Looking for a way to get rid of those most visited thumbnails on Google Chrome’s new tab page (NTP)? This article will help you do just that.
After using Chrome for a while, one of my friends told me, ” I don’t like Google Chrome because it shows off the websites that I usually visit to anyone who opens the browser.” and then he stopped using Google Chrome. Are you in the same situation, do you want to disable that menu of most visited websites that come up every time you open the browser ? Here is how to do it.
How to to turn off the “Most Visited Sites” On NTP
1. Go to Options
2. Click on Basics Tab
3. Now, next to ” Homepage”, select “Open This Page”.
4. You can put in Google.com or some other website that you like. Or, if you want a blank screen, put about:blank
5. Done !!
Wasn’t that easy?
