Setting Startup Pages in Google Chrome
One of the things I get asked about often is how to get your favorite pages to open automatically when you start your Chrome browser. Many of you have already done this but if you haven't and want to know how, here you go!
Save time navigating to your most frequented sites by setting them as your startup pages. Go to settings (the "three hot dogs" in the upper left), then under “On Startup”, click “Set Pages”. Enter the URLs of your favorite websites and then save. Now every time you boot up Chrome those pages will automatically open.
