Questions about browser settings

Where are the settings?

  1. Click  → Settings.
  2. In the On startup section, select an option.

In this section, you can also set Yandex as your homepage. To do this, select the Open if no tabs were saved option.

Resetting your browser settings means that the original settings will be restored:

To clear your browser settings:

  1. Click  → Settings.
  2. At the bottom of the Settings page, click Show advanced settings.
  3. In the Reset settings section of the browser, click Reset settings.
  4. Click Reset.

Security of browser settings

Some programs (such as chat programs, extra browser panels, and so on) may change your browser settings without asking you.

Yandex Browser tracks these changes and automatically restores the default settings. You'll see a message about this at the top of the settings page (click  → Settings):

  2. Type the #enable-system-frame flag in the search bar.
  3. Select the System window controls option.
  4. Relaunch the browser and check the results.
Attention. This setting is experimental. Turning it on might cause problems in the browser. In this case, turn off the option and write to Support using the feedback form.
