Yes?, the question is?

Or

Yep, that is correct on the first tab (genial) at the top you should see a box label "home page" then just enter you home page URL in there e.g. my home page is http://home.nzcity.co.nz/

Hope this helps, if not post back here

Thanks for your reply,stu120404 I can change the address in the box labeled "homepage" but I still would like to know how to change my Default homepage.

In the Tools menu I go to the Internet Options..... , then the Internet Options window comes up. From there you see the Homepage where you can change the Current Homepage Labelled as follows.... Use current,Use Default,Use Blank. How do I change the Use Default HPage.

When I click on the "Use Default" Tab it is a Homepage no longer in use.

Appreciate the Help .

Thanks Once Again.

That involves a trip into the Registry I believe, to edit the keys. Use Regedit.

There are several likely locations, the easist way to find them all may be a search of the exact URL that comes up under Default.

As the Registry is mission critical, make sure all usual precautions are taken before editing it, such as backing up.

To set Default Homepage
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
"StartPage"="http://www.yourwebaddress.com"

What is the problem with just typing in the address of the website you want to have as your homepage.
