How Automating Google Chrome Can Help Your Business

Setting up Google Chrome to automatically open your most-used tabs every time you launch the browser allows you to get started working more quickly and effectively. Automating as many tasks as you can for your business can help to save you time, money, and energy. Some ideas for tabs to have Google Chrome automatically launch on startup include:

Social Media

Utilizing social media for your business is an important aspect of growing as a company, so why not have Google Chrome automatically open your business’s social media when you get started for the day? This can allow you to easily check your stats or quickly post when you get started each morning.


If you use your internet browser to read emails, go ahead and set up Google Chrome to open your inbox when you launch the browser. This allows you to easily remember to check your emails throughout the day so you never miss anything important.

Microsoft Teams/Google Workspace/Slack

If your company utilizes business messaging apps such as Microsoft Teams, Google Workspace, Slack, or an alternative, consider setting up Google Chrome to include opening these tabs when you launch your browser. This can be especially useful for those early morning meetings and keeping in touch during an important project.

Company Website

Having your company website open when you launch Google Chrome can be a helpful addition to your list of websites to automatically open, so don’t forget to add it to the list if you find yourself frequenting it while you work.

Remember that what tabs you choose to have open when you launch Google Chrome are designed to benefit your work, not hinder you. Be sure to only add tabs that you use on a regular basis, or you might find that your browser becomes cluttered and crowded. For example, utilizing social media can be a great way to expand your business, but it can also serve as a distraction.

Utilizing the Bookmarks Bar

If you find that you have certain websites, such as social media or your company website, that you use some days but not others, consider adding them to your Bookmarks Bar in Google Chrome instead of having them open when you launch the browser. This is an extremely easy step that allows you to easily click on websites when you open a new tab. To add a website to your Bookmarks Bar, simply press the star icon on the far right of the web address to save it. Choose the folder named “Bookmarks Bar.” This will add the website to a selection just beneath the web address bar when you open a new tab.

To access your Bookmarks Bar, simply press the plus sign to open a new tab and choose it from the selection near the top of the screen. This is just another small way that you can automate your business using technology.
