    I use Google Chrome as my web browser. When I open the browser I have it set to open Bing automatically as my opening page as I like the images and it has a pretty good search engine. Anyway, when the browser opens to the Bing page there is an extra blank tab as it should be. When I open the blank tab, it has a bookmark bar with all my bookmarks across the top and also has a thumbnail of each of the bookmarks in the middle of the page (this must be Chromes default as I just installed it and haven't made any setting changes.

    Now this isn't a big issue I guess, but I would really not wish to have the bookmark bar at the top of this new tab nor the thumbnails either. I would just like a blank page. Any suggestions on how to get these off there?

    The link you offered was great - it shows an image of that tab page and that is exactly what it looks like. Just thought there might be some way to turn those items off, but it appears there is not.

    I know when you open a new tab in IE, it just opens a blank page. Not sure about Fire Fox.

    No big deal, I can live with it.

    Thanks you very much for taking the time to help me out.
