How to Restore the New Tab Page to its Previous Behaviour in Google Chrome Browser

After Google Chrome 69 update, some users might have noticed that the new tab page has also been changed. Now each time you open a new tab page on Google Chrome, 10 tiles representing your most viewed pages will be displayed. For some users, this new feature expresses a serious privacy issue as tiles can display the latest Facebook profile or Youtube videos viewed. Also, the new version doesn’t revert back to websites you removed. If you’d like to get back to the previous new tab page version or delete some of the shortcuts, read on.</ital>




How to Delete a Shortcut from New Tab Page in Chrome

To remove a website from your new tab page menu, point the cursor on it, click on three dots and select Remove.


You can customize your New Tab page in Chrome more by going to Settings > Appearance.

How to Restore the New Tab Page to its Previous Behaviour

To restore your Google Chrome, you will need to disable the experimental option – a flag called New Tab Page Material Design UI. To do so, type
chrome://flags/#ntp-ui-md
in the Chrome address bar or search for New Tab Page Material Design UI in the
chrome://flags section.



Disable the feature and relaunch your Chrome browser.


After this, the previous New Tab shall be restored.
N.B.If you accidentally close a tab on Google Chrome, press Control+Shift+T and it will get it back.

Chrome Extension

If the previous method didn’t work, you can also add a Chrome 33+ extension to your browser. To download it, click here. The New Tab Reload extension is designed specifically for users who are not happy with the new design and would like to restore the old one back from Chrome 33 version.
