    Default homepage or "chromepage" button

    I can't find buttons for homepage, print, or print preview. I love the page with the mini-pages of visited pages - that would make a great homepage.

    Default Print Preview

    The "print preview" option is missing in Chrome and because of this, some times the pages are not printing completely. A lot of times based on the print preview, the page setup is changed i.e. whether the page should be "portrait" or landscape". In the absence of this option, I am forced to use Internet Explorer where ever I need to print the page.

    The "Home Page" button is turned off by default. You can find the Options screen under the little wrench button. (What do they officially call that button anyway?)

    On the Options screen, you'll find a section for "Home Page". Select "Use the New Tab page" and "Show Home button on the toolbar."

    Same here. Chrome has only the very basic printing functionality - "Press Print, pick a printer, and go." Poor printing is actually one of the things preventing wide adoption of Chrome in my organization.

    I got so accustomed to printing from email or map sites being so wasteful of paper and ink that I just got in the habit of cutting, pasting and trimming before printing.
    I have a google doc named "PP" (preprint) on the bookmarks bar. I copy and paste to this document. Trim it and then print. At the beginning or end of each use you will need to select all & delete.
    You can do the same thing with a new Word Document on your desktop.

    That's all well and good for the technically capable... The vast majority of my organization is... uh... how shall we say... not.

    I use Chrome for everything except printing. I, sadly, fire up Internet Explorer for that.

    Print preview is embedded in the user script and I cannot disable it (see bleow). How can it be removed so I can print from Chrome again?

    Google Chrome 10.0.648.204 (Official Build 79063)
    WebKit 534.16 (branches/chromium/648@81505)
    V8 3.0.12.30
    User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.16 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/10.0.648.204 Safari/534.16
    Command Line "C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --flag-switches-begin --enable-accelerated-layers --enable-print-preview --flag-switches-end
