How do I get rid of unwanted tabs permanently?

How do I get rid of unwanted tabs permanently?

BestComputerExpert :

Can you tell me what tabs you are trying to remove? Does your Google Chrome open multiple tabs (websites) when you first open it and you are trying to make it not open those? You can use this chat box to reply to me :)

Customer:

There are multiple tabs I would like to get rid of two of them.

BestComputerExpert :

Do the tabs automatically appear when Google chrome opens?

Customer:

Yes

BestComputerExpert :

Or is it something that just happened and you can’t close them?

BestComputerExpert :

Great :)

BestComputerExpert :

Do you know how to bookmark a favorite in Google Chrome?

Customer:

I can close them but getting to yahoo thru chrome they reappear. Yes I can bookmark.

BestComputerExpert :

Perfect :) Go ahead and bookmark our chat so you can return after I have you try a few steps. Also in case we lose each other you can re-join the chat easily through the bookmark. Once you have it added let's try this.

Customer:

Done.

BestComputerExpert :

Go ahead and click the Wrench in the top right hand corner of Chrome and choose Settings

Scroll down to where it says "On Startup"

Check the box that says "Open a specific page or set of pages"

Then click the blue link that says Set Pages

See if those unwanted tabs appear under here, if they do hover over them and click the X

This will remove them

Customer:

I will start chrome to see if they return. To do that I have to shut down.

BestComputerExpert :

Sounds good I'll be on Standby :)

Customer:

They did not return.
