THIS STARTED THIS MORNING. Chrome was behaving fine yesterday.
My desired opening page is
Under Settings > On Startup, I have selected "Open a specific page or set of pages" and
https://start.me/ is selected. But when I open Chrome, I get Google and a 2nd tab that says "What's new" and a page that is actually blank. When I click (+), I do get a new tab with
start.me, but not on opening.
As I said above, I got
start.me on opening and with new tabs as recently as yesterday. I have made no changes to my settings between then and now.
edit: of note, my Chrome is up to date, running Version 95.0.4638.54 (Official Build) (64-bit)
