When you install the Wakelet browser extension for Chrome (see here), your 'New Tab' page will automatically be changed to Wakelet.
This is a really useful feature for quickly saving and organising your content. You can even create a collection from all of your tabs in just one click. See here for a guide on using it.
If you'd prefer not to use the Wakelet New Tab, it's really easy to disable.
To disable the Wakelet new tab page
- Right click on the 'W' button on your browser bar
- Select 'options'
- On the page that appears, click the toggle next to 'Enable Wakelet extension for new tabs'.
To re-enable it, just do the same again.
I want to use a different new tab extension
If you follow the above steps to disable the page, you may find that your old 'new tab' page, if set by a different extension, is now missing and the default new tab for Chrome is appearing. To fix this and use your old extension, you can either:
- Re-install the previous extension (Chrome chooses the last 'new tab' installed as a default)
- Use a new tab manager extension, such as MultiNewTab. (Please note that Wakelet is not responsible for any external extensions, install at your own risk).
