How can I start Google Chrome with a blank page from the command line (chrome.exe)?

check the default load page and make blank then use chrome.exe to launch. – David Murray Aug 4 '12 at 9:21
I'd like to point you to the FAQ where it says, > Civility is required at all times; rudeness will not be tolerated. This is your last warning. Don't be rude against community members. – slhck Aug 4 '12 at 10:00
correct, but downvoting a question without a reason... isn't civil – Rabih Kodeih Aug 4 '12 at 10:01
@user698585 people may have their reasons. Most popular reason is "does not show research effort". And your question might fall into the catogory a google search could have solved on its own. – Baarn Aug 4 '12 at 10:44
Walter: The question has been asked precisely because a google search didn't yield satisfactory results and by the way the stackexchange administration itself urges users to clearly comment on their downvote reason. – Rabih Kodeih Aug 5 '12 at 13:47

From the command line, simply type:

chrome.exe -homepage "about:blank"
