Are you serious?  Go to the Home symbol with the arrow, pull down, and choose "Add or Change Home Page."   Also, it is located under Tools.... Internet Options.... under the General tab.

Stupid Question:

How do you set it as your homepage when you have Google Chrome?
There is no home button in the toolbar, so what do I do?

I like so many other seniors have found that computers are a wonderful tool and great company, especially if we live alone. Unfortunately, we do not understand the jargon used when we need information to solve problems. I no longer get the Google home page unless I type into the address bar; google.com and then it appears.
I have tried to follow some of the suggestions posted, but the terms used are unfamiliar to me, almost like reading a foreign language. I wish there was a site for seniors which could also serve beginners as well, which would solve problems in understandable terminology.
So if any computer whiz reading this could explain to this 73 year old lady, how to get back the Google home page every time I open IE, it would be much appreciated by me, and no doubt many others as well.

I agree, can I adopt a computer whiz? I would feed, shelter and provide medical care. :) I think the idea of a seniors application or level or site that is BASIC would be a great product. It's not a matter of being smart--one thing just leads to another and you are lucky if you get there THIS time. I can't get the clean clear google home page either.

My Homepage (which I love) keeps disappearing too. There was a "help" that gave a URL to set in your cmputer. That lasted awhile but now it has dissapeared again when I said "yes" to some new changes in email. I can't find that URL again. The messages have changed. Do you think Googl ever reads these Things? I don't!
Re: how do I make Google my home page? ardysann 8/1/09 5:26 PM
Hi Celine, I'm a senior too, (82) and I posted a concurrence with your problem just a few minutes ago.  Then (on Vista Home Premium) I went to Control Panel, Then to Change  Homepage. The URL I mentioned was still there, http://www.google.com/ig?hl  ( That's IG?HL). I clicked it again (made it black instead of blue) and when I went back on the web my old beloved homepage was back. So try setting that URL in your control Panel.

this is i response to ardy sann"s instructions and all the seniors who feel confused by computers and the jargon. i am 32 and college educated and reluctantly switched from typewriters to computers back in college, and i am still as confused and clueless about many of the more complicated (which some find easy) issues on computer work. ardy's is the ONLY answer that worked for me. I csnt find a house logo on my tool bar or google, but going to control panel and the internet section and typiing in the address worked. so dont feel bad about your age, many of us generaion x and baby boomers cant figure this stuff out either, especially with the rapid changes in programming and technology...

No one has given an answer to "how do you make your igoogle page the default home page with google chrome windows 7.0"  in order to have a book mark option i had to download mozilla and now that is my default home page.  if someone has a positive suggestion and not just a chance to complain because they have no social skills and they don't have somebody to talk to in the real world i would really appreciate the help.  

and yes i am annoyed, we have become a nation of greedy children and it is whats wrong with not just south florida but the whole country, hey goosschmuck"stupid question"  your offered no help, and lashed out feel better now, and shubham, no i am not happy now because no that also did not help.  

sorry if i offend but enough is enough, what happend to lending a hand, wow i wish that was an american value somebody would bring back

and thanks ardysann for offering a constructive suggestion i wish it would have worked for me  i wish we had a few more like you out there

Hi agshdgt,

Sorry you've had such a hard time getting an answer to your question. Hopefully these Chrome instructions will help:
  1. Click the Tools menu (wrench icon).
  2. Select Options.
  3. Click the Basics tab.
  4. In the "Home page" section, set your home page:
  5. To see your home page every time you open Google Chrome, select "Open the home page" in the "On startup" section.
  6. Click Close.
I'm also including a link to another walk-through that may help (though you should also be sure to enter http://www.google.com/ig as the home page).

Even better, if you use http://www.bemyhomepage.com as your homepage you can have google and all the other sites you commonly visit with in a click's reach.

I don't always find google to be where I want to go when I open a web browser. Most of the time I want to go to Facebook, Hotmail, MSN, etc. And this means the majority of the time I have to type out their addresses. Be my homepage takes the typing factor away, yeah!
