Last Updated on February 11, 2017 by Jeorge Bryan
Whether you have just installed a new browser or reset your current one, you may find yourself with an unwanted home page. Here I will show you how to change your home page on a few of the most common browsers.
In Internet Explorer, you first open the application and go to the Tools menu. This menu’s icon is a small gear in the top right of the application window. After clicking the gear, you will see a small menu drop down. The option to get to your settings is Internet Options.
Once you click the Internet Options item, a new window will appear. Here you can set your homepage by the URL or just click the option Use Current to make all of your current pages open on start. You can also just hit Use New Tab to open an empty tab on startup.
Once you have your desired home page, you can just hit OK to save it.
In Mozilla Firefox, you first open up the application and go to the Menu. This is where all of your Firefox options are. The Options gear is where you can find your home page settings.
Once you open up Options you can see the home page settings in the first tab. Here you can set the homepage by URL or set it to use the current pages that are open. The Use Bookmark option will let you choose one of your saved bookmarks to use as your home page.
Once you have your desired homepage, you can just hit OK to save it and close out of the options window.
In Google Chrome, you first launch the program and go to the Customization Menu and click on Settings. This will take you to the settings window where you can modify things like your home page.
Once you are inside Settings, navigate to the On Startup category and fill in the bubble that says Open a Specific Page or Set of Pages. This will let you select what pages open when you start Chrome.
You can then click Set Pages to tell Chrome what web pages you want to open when you start Chrome.
You can set Chrome to open a single page or multiple pages. After you have your pages set you can just click OK to save the pages then you can close out of the Settings tab. Now when you open Chrome you will see those pages open up.
