Google Chrome keeps shortcuts to your most visited sites on its home page. If you do not find this list useful, you can either individually remove these shortcuts or hide all the shortcuts at once. Let’s explore how to do this.
Tip: When you delete a shortcut, that item’s gone forever. However, you can bring back all your hidden shortcuts at once with a few clicks.
This is for devices running the latest version of Google Chrome. Screenshots are from Windows 10
Delete a New Tab Shortcut
To individually remove your site shortcuts from the New Tab page, first, open a new tab in Chrome. You can do this by pressing Ctrl+T (Windows) or Command+T (Mac).
Next, on the New Tab page, find the shortcut you want to delete. Hover your cursor in that shortcut’s top-right corner, then click the three dots (the Menu icon) that appear. Refer to the below image:
Now, in the three-dot Menu icon, choose Remove. See the below image:
Instantly, Chrome will remove the selected shortcut from your New Tab page.
Note: If you accidentally delete a shortcut, you can restore it by clicking Undo in the confirmation message that opens at the bottom left-hand corner.
Hide All New Tab Shortcuts
If you do not wish to see any shortcuts at all, you can hide all of them with a few easy clicks.
First, launch a New Tab in Chrome. Then, in the New Tab screen’s bottom right-hand corner, select the Pencil icon for Customize this page. See the following image:
Next, in the left sidebar of the open window, click Shortcuts. Refer to the below image:
Now, on the right pane, toggle the Hide Shortcuts option to ON. Then, at the bottom, click Done. See the below image:
Note: Later, to unhide your shortcuts and bring them back to your New Tab page, toggle the Hide Shortcuts option to OFF and click Done.
Back on the New Tab page, you will find all your site shortcuts are gone.
