    I usually change my home page, like it to be something simple like google.com or bing.com

    I also change the page that opens when creating a new tab to be a blank page

    When I start my browser I want it to open quickly, not have to download loads of pictures and news stories like msn.com does

    The very first thing I do when starting a new Browser is change the Home Page. I assumed everyone did rather than use some page someone else decided on!

    Most people don't know how to change it. Of those that do, many (like myself) just don't bother because 99.999999% of the time i'm going somewhere else anyways (and not the same place, so making it my home page would be pointless), so the homepage doesn't matter. In fact, if you're like me and leave IE up all the time, you almost never see the home page... because you only see it when starting a new browser for the first time. Another percentage actually like the default home page. And finally, there are just a lot of people that just don't care.

    Less than .000001% change their homepage! That is a small number of user that change their homepage.

    Perhaps you should read again. I did not say that.

    You asked SaggMaggyPoo if she knew how few people actually change their homepage. I asked what the number was because I believe it a large percentage. If you are referring to people who only use the default browser because the don't know they can use different browsers than the number is going to be small. I'll ask again What is the numbers?

    IE options


    Hi SMP, (I'm just lazy),
    The old IE options feature is still there,
    I got there using
    Notifications>settings>network and internet>internet options, note you have to scroll down.

    AND IT WORKS ON SPARTAN,
    tested on remove passwords.

    If that's true, why do you think all the browsers bother to provide a way to change it? In any event, "different strokes for different folks".
