    Which one do you want as your default home page ?

    I am using IE11, and I use google.ca as my home page.
    Here is how I set it...............
    Open IE11 > at the top, click Tools > click Internet options > General tab > under Home page, I erase ( backspacing ) whatever is on the list > I then enter www.google.ca > OK when done.

    I also went to IE11 > Tools > Manage add-ons > Search providers > and I added google as a search provider > selected it as Default > removed the rest of the providers that were on the list.

    Restart computer.
