FAQ #17 How do I reset my homepage in IE?

Originally written by Susan B


Your home page is the page that appears every time you open Internet Explorer (or other browser). It is usually a page that you want to view frequently, such as Press F1.

Use one of these two methods to make a webpage your Home Page:

1. The simplest way is to open Internet Explorer and whilst online go to your favorite home page. Now go to Tools>Internet Options>General tab and click 'Use current'.

2. The other way is to open Internet Explorer, go to Tools|Internet Options, and type in the Home page address that you want to use.

Maybe a link to How do I get rid of an unwanted homepage (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=50622) for those who search the FGAQ's and land here first.

If your home page keeps reverting back to a website that you have not chosen yourself it is highly likely that it has been hijacked. Please see FAQ #16 - Spyware and Adware and FAQ #18 - How do I get rid of an unwanted home page for help on how to get rid of your hijacker.
