It sure is convenient — not to mention quick and easy — to configure your Google Chrome web browser to open a specific set of web pages automatically on every launch. In fact, I rely on it.
- Click on the wrench icon (upper right) and choose
- One of the first items listed is On startup
- The third choice in the On startup section is:
Open a specific page or set of pages
- Modify as needed
- Close the Chrome settings page
That’s it; it’s that simple!

I recently received the following error message while using the fantastic Chrome web browser to view YouTube videos:
Couldn’t load plugin
I had several important processes going on, so I did not want to reboot; thankfully, correcting this video error message turns out to be no big deal at all; it is a simple problem that’s easily corrected:
- Click on Chrome’s wrench icon (upper right of the Google Chrome browser screen)
- Navigate to
Tools>Task Manager & open it
- With Task Manager open, highlight “Plug-in: Shockwave Flash” and click “End process” (button at lower right of Task Manager dialog box)
- Reload/refresh the pages with videos you want to watch

Changing the default download location on PCs running Windows 7 requires a quick and easy update to the settings of your web browser. I use Chrome exclusively; for some strange reason, Firefox doesn’t run properly on this machine – but the process is probably similar on all browsers.
In Chrome, click the wrench icon (upper right, under the X) and select Options – Under the Hood. Find the Downloads section and simply change the default download folder. It’s that easy.
