You use the Chrome browser with QuickBooks Online. Many browsers sport an icon that you can click to return to your Home page — the page that appears when you open the browser.

When you open Chrome, by default, the New Tab page appears. Although Chrome doesn’t show the Home icon, you can set a Home page and display the icon that you click to display that Home page. Note that Chrome doesn’t open and display the page you set as the Home page; instead, the Home page appears when you click the Home button.

Before you begin the following steps, make sure you know the web address of the page you want to set as your Home page:

  1. Choose Chrome Menu→Settings.

    The Settings tab appears.

  2. In the Appearance section, click the Show Home Button check box.

    The Home button appears between the Refresh button and the Omnibox. By default, Chrome opens the New Tab page whenever you click the Home button.

  3. Click Change.

    The Home page dialog box appears.

  4. Select the Open This Page option and type a web address.

  5. Click OK.

The Home page appears whenever you click the Home icon beside the Omnibox.

If you open certain sites every time you start Chrome, you can pin each page as a tab.
