How to get Home to open Dashboard


Is it possible to open the Dashboard by clicking the “Home” icon? Entering “Dashboard” in the homepage field doesn’t work, it just gives the error “this url is invalid”. I know I can just open a new tab and close the current page, but this way would save me a few clicks.

I also noticed that you can have the home button open two tabs, one with a URL and one with the Dashboard, by appending a “|” to the URL, so I tried just the “|” with no URL, but that just gave me the invalid url error again.

C. A listing of:
i. Your Operating System and version: Mac OS 10.12.4
ii. Your Brave Version: 0.15.1

D. Detailed step-by-step instructions of how you came across the issue:
Open Preferences->General
Edit Homepage field
Click "Show home button on URL bar"
Click home button in URL bar


Hi @mviesel,

Yes, it’s possible. :slight_smile: Set about:newtab as your homepage will open dashboard when you click Home button. :wink:

It’s also work for me with||about:newtab.

Hope that help. Thank you,
