I used to have the iGoogle page set as Homepage in Google Chrome.

Now, as the iGoogle service will be retired, I searched for alternatives, found some, and adjusted my Chrome Homepage accordingly.

When I open Chrome it's OK, the new homepage gets shown. But when I press ALT+HOME in a tab, I am taken to iGoogle, although the Chrome documentation says that this keyboard shortcut "Opens your homepage in your current window".

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Under Chrome > Settings > Appearance there is a checkbox for "Show Home button". Right under this checkbox is a "New Tab page" label a "Change" link net to it. Click this "Change" to to set you New Tab location.

I wasn't referring to new tabs, but to the ALT+HOME shortcut that should navigate to the home page in the current tab – w0lf Jul 14 '12 at 10:32
I gave it a try and it worked! I thought that the 'On Startup' section was in fact the home page, but I was wrong. Thanks a lot! – w0lf Jul 14 '12 at 10:41
