How do I change the startup default home page?


When I go online, 3 homepages load one after the other, MSN, Windows temp, and ICQ, how can I stop them from coming up.

Thank you

Your profile indicates that you use Windows 98 with the MSN so we are making the assumption that you are using Internet Explorer 5:

In Internet Explorer 5.0, select the 'Tools' menu and select 'Internet Options...' In the 'Home page' group, type the URL, click 'Use Current', click 'Use Default', or click 'Use Blank'

1) Open Internet Explorer 5.0

2) Select the 'Tools' menu and select 'Internet Options...' (The 'Internet Options' dialog box appears.)

3) In the 'Home page' group, do one of the following:

a) To type a specific page, in the 'Address' box, type the URL of the Web page

b) To use the currently displayed page, click 'Use Current'

c) To set the startup page to a blank page, click 'Use Blank'

d) To set the startup page to the Microsoft Network home page, click 'Use Default'

4) To close the 'Internet Options' dialog box, click 'OK'
