When I leave a Chrome window open and shutdown Windows, when starting it again, the window reopens (with all the tabs). How can I disable this?

PS: I would also like to disable that Chrome opens up every tab again after I close the window. So when closing the window and opening it again that no tabs are open. Because I already select that Chrome should open ONLY chrome://apps on StartUp

PPS: Maybe the reopening of the whole window has something to do with Windows settings also?

Note: This is not a duplicate as suggested above, since the problem also occurs when I just reopen Chrome without restarting Windows...

  • Open chrome settings and scroll down to "On Startup" then tick "Open the New Tab Page" – Moab Feb 20 '19 at 14:30

    I disagree with the above duplicate nomination. This question is about Chrome; that question is about Windows. – Scott Feb 21 '19 at 20:20

go to chrome setting

at the bottom of page see the on start up option

set it to open the new tab page

save setting and restart chrome

hope it helps

    Hah, if I knew it would be so simple. It is just a bit confusing, since there are three options to choose from (1) New tab (2) Open (all) last visited pages (3) Open a specific tab. I would have assumed, that (3) does ONLY open this specific tab and NOT also all the previously visited pages as well. But it looks like it does. Just a bit irritating... – Cyman Feb 27 '19 at 12:02
