  2. Click on the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner of the browser window.
  3. Hover over the “More tools” option in the dropdown menu and select “Create shortcut”.
  4. A dialog box will appear asking if you want to create a shortcut on the desktop. Check the box and click “Create”.
  5. Now, you will have a shortcut on your desktop that opens the desired page in Chrome.

Step 2: Configuring Chrome Startup Settings

Now that you have the shortcut ready, let’s configure Chrome to open the desired page on login:

  1. Right-click on the shortcut icon on your desktop and select “Properties” from the context menu.
  2. In the “Target” field, you will see the path to the Chrome executable followed by a space. Add the URL of the page you want to open after the space. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" https://www.example.com
  3. Click “OK” to save the changes.

Step 3: Adding the Shortcut to Startup

Now that you have configured the Chrome shortcut, it’s time to add it to the Windows startup folder:

  1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box.
  2. Type shell:startup and press Enter. This will open the Startup folder.
  3. Drag and drop the Chrome shortcut from your desktop into the Startup folder.
