How do I change my start page?

Question

I would like to comment on your column of Feb 26 re setting the desired atart page in Internet explorer.I have done this on several occasions and the start page I apply remains until I turn off the computer. When I reboot I find that the start page is either Yahoo or some other page i.e. Fine search. I am trying to make the default page Earthlink.

Thank you for your question Try this Sign onto your ISP Go up to "Tools" on the taskbar at the top of your monitor Click on it In the pull down menu that appears click on "Internet Options" the genral tab should already be displayed, if not click on the "General" tab There should be an option displayed "Home page address" with a box after it For earthlink's home page type in http://start.earthlink.net/ After you type that click "apply" then click "ok" Do not click "Use Current" as this will set the home page to the URL that your browser currently has open This should set your home page to the default earthlink page you are looking for If for some reason it does not, call earthlink at 1-800-395-8410.
