How to lock in stone my desired startup page in Chrome

Need -a- Clue
Need -a- Clue used Ask the Experts™

Is there a "feature", app, utility or ANY method that will tell Windows 10 to NEVER change my Chrome startup page unless I specifically authorize it? I want my startup page to ALWAYS be https://www.google.com   Somehow it seems that something is able to change it at will to something else. Lately I am getting Home Depot's main page. I need some way of locking the page I want in CONCRETE as much as is possible. Does anyone have any suggestions that might work for me.

There is something that is close to "carved in stone" and that is GPOs.

If you are using win10 professional or enterprise, Just go to https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/187202?hl=en and follow the steps.
If however you are running wn10 home, please tell me so I can tell you an alternate way.

Paul Sauvé I use your method often, but, somehow, it changes to a different page. In the meanwhile I have tried it again and hope for the best. There really should be an option that says "You are about to change your default Chrome page. Do you really want to do this?"  That would be nice instead of winding up at www.i couldnotcarelessaboutthisworthlessunwantedspampage.com

The selected solution is wrong since it can be easily overridden (for example using my way).
