How to change your web browser’s home page

Filed under: Computing Tips - Dec 27 2010

When you open your web browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc.) a “home page” or “start page” is the first web page that displays. It can be set to any page of your choice such as a search page like Google.com, or a news and information page such as Yahoo.com, Aol.com, Att.net or Charter.net. It can also be set to go directly to your webmail page like mail.yahoo.com, gmail.com or outlook.com 

Sometimes your home/start page may get changed as a side effect of updating a program or installing adware. To change the page back to one of your choice, please click the link below to view a Google help article that gives directions on how to set your home page to Google – but you can choose any page you like: How to change your homepage
