There is always a little niggle in our minds when starting up our computers for the morning: Should I just right into work, or is there something else that might catch my attention? Productivity experts note that the first few hours can set the tone for our entire day, making your computer start-up procedures an important part of your productivity. More than 60% of the people who consider themselves an early riser note that they’re more productive at this time of the day, too. These quick tips for your Google Chrome browser will help ensure that you don’t get distracted . . . at least, not right off the bat!

Automatically Open Your Most-Used Websites

Do you start your day with news, or automatically jump to a few business-specific applications? Why not let Google Chrome do the work for you? You can pre-set one or more tabs to open automatically when you launch Chrome for the first time. Here’s how:

  • Go to Settings
  • Under ‘On Startup,’ select ‘Open a specific page or set of pages.’
  • Enter the pages you would like to open when you’re launching Google Chrome, and you’re all set!

This quick tip not only saves you a few steps but helps ensure that you get right down to business as you’re starting the day.

Boost Productivity with Extensions

While having too many extensions added to Google Chrome can be problematic and affect performance, there are a few necessary extensions that you may want to consider. Always look for reviews before installing extensions, and know that you can quickly disable them as needed if you notice a hit to your browser’s performance.

  • RescueTime for Chrome. Want to see how much time you’re wasting on social media or watching videos? This extension will help you stay on track.
  • AdBlock Plus. Tired of dealing with annoying ads that distract you from what you’re trying to do? Grab this extension.
  • Keep track of billable time with Toggl or Tracking Time. This is ideal for contractors and anyone who needs to apply their time to a particular project.
