    How to Enable or Disable New Tab Page Customization Menu version 2 in Google Chrome


    When you have Google set as your default search engine in Google Chrome, you can open a New Tab page Ctrl+N in Google Chrome and click/tap on the Customize button at the bottom to see the New Tab page customization menu.

    Starting with Google Chrome 77, you can enable to use an updated second version of the New Tab page customization menu.

    The second version of the New Tab page customization menu still allows you to change the Background of the New Tab page, but it adds a new Shortcuts menu that allows you to select to show My shortcuts, Most visited sites, or Hide shortcuts on the New Tab page in Google Chrome.

    When you enable the second version of the New Tab page customization menu, you can also enable showing the Color and Theme menu in the New Tab page customization menu if wanted. The Color and Theme menu allows you to change the Google Chrome browser color scheme using a color you select. You can select from a number of preset colors, the default color, or a custom color.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable using the second version of the New Tab page customization menu in Google Chrome.

    Enable or Disable New Tab Page Material Design UI in Google Chrome  

    It is basically working now but there is a weird problem. I've set the new tab page to Google which shows this correctly:

    However, when I start Chrome I've set up to go to Google which displays in the old UI style. It also does this when I select Home which is also set to Google. That's what's been confusing me. Is this a bug?

    See below the flags I've set and the Chrome page as displayed. I see the old style tabs but not the new style UI.

    Because the flag mentioned in this tutorial doesn't affect the tabs, if you want to have the tabs with the previous design you should use this flag:

    That solved it - setting open Chrome and the Home button to New Tab displays the Google search page in the new UI!

    Setting the New Tab Page Material Design UI flag back to "Default" should allow it.
