In a previous article I showed you how to get around (or remove) this New Tab Page using Google Chrome extensions, but now there is a simpler way to do this and it doesn’t require the use of extensions. So, for those users that want to switch back to the old Tab Page, here is how to disable New Tab Page: This is pretty simple, what you have to do is to append a switch to the web browser when starts. 

  1. Terminate any open instance of Google Chrome, right-click the icon you use to open the web browser, select Properties.
  2. From the Shortcut tab, in the Target section, at the end of the line append the following line. 

Remember to leave a space between the line is already there and the new switch. 3. Then click Apply and OK to save the changes.  Now is time to test it, just re-launch Google Chrome and an empty tab page should open. If for any reason this stop working, you should use an extension to disable New Tab Page, as I mentioned at the beginning of this article .  All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied.
