Changing the Homepage of Your Browser
The instructions below will give you step by step how to do it - note the different instructions depending on the browser that you use.
In the section called "On Startup" - Chrome has several options available for when you open a new window.
- Open the New Tab page. When you open a new window, you will be shown your most visited websites and your installed Chrome apps.
- Continue where I left off. This will open your last visited website when you start a new Chrome window. If you had multiple tabs open before, they will all reopen.
- Open a specific page or set of pages. This will open one or more tabs that you designate whenever a new Chrome window is opened. Click the “Set pages” link to add pages to Chrome’s startup.
Set multiple tabs to open. If you want to open several websites at once when Firefox starts, first open the websites that you want to set. Make sure the tabs are all located in the same Firefox window.
- On the Menu bar, go to Tools, Options. In the Options menu, click the General tab.
- Click the Use Current Pages button. The tabs that you currently have open will reopen when you start Firefox again.
Set your home page options. In the General tab, you will have several home page options:
- Click “Use current” to set the page you are currently viewing as your home page.
- Enter website addresses into the field to open each one in a separate tab. Make sure each address is on its own line.
- Click “Use blank” to open a blank tab when Internet Explorer starts.
