How to Get rid of the Pesky Bing “New Tab” Page on Google Chrome

30 Apr

Dell technicians have been playing around on my computer the last few days, and have installed Magic Jellybean Keyfinder in the process. That’s all well and good but it brings with it “Conduit’s search engine” and the terrible “Bing Home Page” for my “New Tab” on Google Chrome.  

Conduit SUCKS! Big time. So I deleted Conduit right away.  (By the way, if you are looking to remove the Bing “Search Engine,” Check out the “removing Conduit” page–the steps are the same.)

Figuring out how to get the Bing Home Page from showing up everything I start up Chrome or open up a “New Tab” was more difficult. I tried going through settings.  That didn’t work.  Then I tried Googling it. That suggested I get rid of Conduit, but I already had. It also suggested disabling all extensions until I figured out what was causing it, but it wasn’t any of those.

After about an hour of fiddling around with the stupid program, I got it!  I can’t show pictures because I can’t go backwards now, but here are the steps:

  1. Open up a “New Tab” so that the Bing Page opens.
  2. Look at the bottom left of your screen.
  3. There will be a button called “Restore.” Click it.
  4. Say yes you want to restore to your old settings.
  5. Celebrate! Bing is gone and your Google page re-appears!

Hope this saves someone else the time I wasted!

If you are interested, I walk you through getting rid of Conduit here.
