Solved! Android Chrome Suggested Sites

Jul 18, 2020
Hope I am asking in the right place. I finally figured out how to open chrome to a different homepage than the new tab page (on Samsung note 8)

But when I click new tab to open a second tab it reverts to bringing up a search page with eight suggested websites I visit often. I don't want to see these, they are never helpful and any sites I need are already saved as bookmarks. I would prefer when I open "+" for new tab it simply a new tab to my homepage.

I can clear history and/or eliminate the suggestions one by one but they just keep coming back.
