    Tabs not openening with home page

    I have set Google as my homepage, when I open a new tab, this opens with MSN, is there a way I can set tabs to open as my homepage?

    Which browser are you using?

    I think it's Microsoft Edge

    It might improve given time, it's slow and frustrating, patience is my teaser

    Edge doesn't allow you to specify opening tabs in homepage.

    Click the three dots then Settings. Scroll down to Open Tabs With.

    Those are your options. You might want to use Blank Page and add your home page to favorites or favorites bar.

    Also you don't have to use Edge. If you choose to install other browsers you can usually set tabs t open in specific sites.

    Thank you, my preference is for IE, do I have to uninstall Edge, then download & install IE

    Internet Explorer - you should have it already.

    Thanks, almost sorted, the only other issue I have, when I'm on a webpage and open a favorites page, the favorites page overtakes the webpage I was on, to stop this, is there a way when I open webpages, they open in a new tab?

    "Change how webpages are displayed in tabs" lets you configure options to your liking.

    I've gone through the instructions above, ticked what I though would be the right box tabs still overriding webpages

    Try these settings. You'd need to click Apply or OK as you close out of the window(s)

    Also in IE at the top of the screen right click to enable menu bar.

    Here is tab behaviour that I see with those settings.
