How to use the New Tab page on Chrome Browser

The New Tab page is what you see when you (you guessed it) open a new tab in Google Chrome. It’s designed to get you to your favorite apps and sites, as quickly as possible. To open the New Tab page, click the new tab button icon next to the last tab at the top of the browser window. You can also use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+T and (Mac:⌘-T) to open the page.

Watch a quick demonstration of the New Tab page below

Icons for the apps you’ve installed from the Chrome Web Store appear here. Just click an icon to open the app.

If you've installed apps in Google Chrome on another computer, you can Sign in to Chrome and enable sync to automatically add those apps to the New Tab page on the computer you're using.

To change how an app should be opened, right-click the app icon and select "Open as a regular tab," "Open as a pinned tab," or "Open in full screen." For additional settings, right-click the app and select "Options."
 Move app icons
You can reorder the app icons by clicking and dragging the icons in the "Apps" section. You can also move an app, a webpage, a most visited, or a bookmark to another app section by clicking and dragging the icon and moving it to the section’s label at the bottom of the page.

You can also move an app to a new section. Click an app and start dragging to the bottom of the page. A new blank section will appear for you to drop the app into.
 Label a section
You can rename a section by double-clicking the label and typing in a new name.
 Remove an app or a most visited site
To uninstall an app from Chrome, right-click the app and select Remove from Chrome. Alternatively, when you click and drag an app, the “Remove from Chrome” trash can appears at the lower-right hand corner. Move the app to the button to uninstall.

To remove a most visited site, click and drag the thumbnail to the "Remove from Chrome" trash can. Alternatively, you can remove it by clicking the X icon in the upper right corner of the thumbnail.
