Chrome 77 makes it simple to create your own Chrome browser theme in just some clicks. choose your favorite colors for Chrome’s browser toolbar and set a stylish background image right from the New Tab page.

How to Enable the New Customization Tools

These features aren’t enabled by default in Chrome 77, however, they’re still there: you simply have to enable some hidden flags.

As always with flags, Chrome’s flags could change or be removed at any time. we expect the flags to vanish soon when Google allows this feature by default for everyone soon.

To change Chrome’s new customization, type chrome://flags into Chrome’s Omnibox, additionally called the address bar. You have to type “NTP” into the search box on the Flags page.

How to Enable the New Customization Tools

You have to Enable both the “Chrome colours menu” and “NTP customization menu version 2” flags. simply click the box to the right of each and choose “Enabled.”

Your changes won’t take effect till you restart Chrome. Click to the “Relaunch Now” button that appears to do so. be sure to save any work you’ve got in Chrome’s tabs. Chrome can automatically open your current tabs once it restarts, however, the contents of these tabs—for example, information typed into text boxes on web pages—may be lost.

How to customize Your Chrome Browser

You can now customize your Chrome browser theme right from the New Tab page.

Full Chrome browser themes are still available and are a little a lot of powerful than this—but simply a little. It’s now quick and easy to change your Chrome browser without selecting the colors someone else likes.

To get started, click the “Customize” button at the bottom-right corner of Chrome’s New Tab page.

How to customize Your Chrome Browser

You’ll see options to pick your browser’s color and theme, background image, and shortcut preference here.

To choose your preferred colours, click “Color and theme” and click on one of the colour combinations. You don’t need to choose any of these combinations—you will click the eyedropper icon at the top left corner of the list of colours to get a color picker. this can allow you to choose any color you like. Chrome can automatically select a lighter, similar shade to match the precise color you choose.

How to customize Your Chrome Browser

To select a background image for your New Tab page, click “Background” in the left pane and select an image. you can select a category and an individual image or enable “Refresh daily” to get a replacement background image every day.

You can additionally choose “Upload From Device” and choose any background image you like or keep “No Background” selected for a cleaner look. If you select “No Background,” Chrome can select a background color from your theme.

Finally, you’ll be able to choose how you want the shortcuts below the search box to appear. choose “My Shortcuts” to choose your own shortcuts, “Most visited sites” to have Chrome automatically put your most visited websites here, or “Hide shortcuts” to disable shortcuts entirely for a cleaner look.

You can’t hide the search box on the New Tab page immediately. There was a flag named “Remove fake box from the NTP” that hid this box in previous versions of Chrome, however, it was removed from Chrome 77.
