    No there is nothing wrong with the screen shot he posted to the forum. But on his computer it may not look the same. As I posted I had a computer I repaired the other day that had that problem. With chrome and after checking video properties and so forth it turn out to be spyware. It could be that for him ormaybe even a video problem or monitor setting.

    I see nothing wrong with it either. If you're trying to set it up, simply click the 3 horizontal bars top right & in the drop down menu click settings & it'll open a new tab. Go thru the setting to set it up to your liking.
    Its actually fairly easy to do. Post back if that fixes it or you need further help.

    Click the 'most visited' line on the bottom of the screen. You just have no Chrome Apps installed...

    If you mean you don't have the extensions/themes/apps you usually do, I think you just accidentally signed out of Chrome. Other than that, I'm not sure what is wrong.

    Well, I am new to Chrome, but I thought the homepage initially opened with 4 icons, evenly spaced, across the center of the page, rather than just one, arcanely placed just left of center, on an otherwise blank white page.

    Is this actually the default homepage? Whats the significance of the extended (arrow) flip screen?

    Here is the link to google chropme extensions (addons) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions?hl=en-US

    The main addons I think you'll need are https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/wot/bhmmomiinigofkjcapegjjndpbikblnp?hl=en-US

    You're on the wrong screen. Chrome remembers the last screen you were on and opens this up the next time.

    The default screen in Most Visited.

    Thanks guys, I'll get it eventually.
    Doesn't seem very intuitive, and consequently the price paid for Chrome's slick uncluttered, appearancel
