  1. When I click on a new page, the new page opens up with yahoo browser in the url field at the top which is strange because yahoo is not my default search engine. Also the new page has 8 shortcuts in the middle. I don’t know where this default new page URL is or how to change it, but it’s not the page Chrome starts with when I open it up. I don’t know how to find out what the default new page is or how to change it.

  2. First, completely uninstall the Chrome browser then perform windows defender full scan on your PC. Again reinstall Chrome and check for the error.
