How To Delete The Chrome Web Store (Quick Hacks)

With the help of Chrome Web, you can install web-based applications, browsers-themes, and add extensions for the browser. These apps will help you to create documents, play games or you can even and edit photos. 

Here certain features come for free while you might need to pay for some of the app and, extensions. Furthermore, if you publish your app in the Chrome web store, then you will be able to reach more people and you can even earn revenue. 

However, in the New Tab page, you will not find any way to remove the Chrome web-store link or any help to customize this page manually. Thus, you need to use a browser extension to hide the link.

How the New Tab Page Works? 

When you open a new tab on Google Chrome, a new page pops up every time. Sometimes, the tab page might appear as the home page if you set it in such a process. 

If you want to disable the new homepage, then go to the address bar to open chrome://settings/browser. Head over the “On startup” and “Homepage” headings to edit the settings. 

Move to Another Apps Page 

Sometimes, without using an extension you might want to remove the Chrome Web Store link. Then, create a second page for Apps and click one or more app icons. You should not close the New Tab screen because in the near future it will appear whenever you open a new tab. 

Switch to the Most Visited Page 

In the New Tab screen, you will find the most visited page. To access that page, you need to click on the link at the bottom of the screen. Make sure that you have not closed the New tab screen because it will appear whenever you open a new tab. 

Actually, you can’t delete the Chrome Web Store link as it is hidden from view. In order to remove a site thumbnail from the list, click on the small cross. 

Install a Browser Extension
