How to remove suggestions from Chrome's new tab pages on desktop

Many Google Chrome users may have noticed something a little different as they open new tabs from their desktop. Similar to the "Discover" cards seen on your phone's Chrome browser, Chrome now has suggestions cards listed at the bottom of your search bar. On a desktop, these cards display information such as your recent shopping carts or those late-night searches for recipes. If you're seeing these cards on your computer and would like to remove them, it's really simple to turn them off. Let's get started.

How to remove suggestions from Chrome's new tab pages on desktop

  1. Open Google Chrome on your desktop.
  2. Open a new tab.
  3. Click on Customize Chrome.

  4. Click on Cards.

  5. Choose Hide all cards to remove all suggestions.

Alternatively, if you'd like to customize your cards, choose the suggestions you'd like to see by selecting them individually.

Do take note that this 'suggestions' feature for Google Chrome on desktops seems to be relatively new. It is likely that Google quietly started pushing it out to users when they added the ability to search tabs in Google Chrome.

How to add suggestions to Chrome new tab pages on desktop

Not all users have these suggestions cards on Chrome's new tab pages on their PCs yet. However, if you'd like to try out this feature, there's a way to turn it on. Follow these instructions to add suggestions to new tabs on Chrome on your desktop computer.

  1. Open Google Chrome on your desktop.
  2. Type chrome://flags/#ntp-modules in the address bar and hit enter.

  3. Enable NTP Modules, NTP Drive Module, NTP Recipe Tasks Module, NTP Shopping Tasks Module, and NTP Chrome Cart Module.

It's unclear exactly when Google started rolling out this feature and when it will be available for all desktop users. Google IO 2021 came and went in the blink of an eye, bringing a host of new products and features with it. After all, there are many things that we may have missed with so many announcements at the time. But we'll be sure to update this guide should more announcements surface in the near future.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
