Where’s the home page button and also find full history link in Google Chrome toolbar

October 2nd, 2009

Do you find home page button in your Google chrome Browser toolbar, ‘no’ because by default Google hides the Home page button in chrome.

Want to see home page button in Google chrome toolbar? then here is tip…

Go to Settings -> Options -> Basics then check the option “Show Home button on the toolbar” at Homepage (shown in the screen shot below)

You will find Homepage icon before address bar in the tool bar as shown in the screen shot

I  personally hope home page option at tool bar is dosn’t much useful as internals available with “keep on this page” option .

One more option that doesn’t appear in Chrome tool bar is history button.
To see the history just click and hold the “back button” you will find recent history along with a link “show full history” to get full history page.
