    Internet Options


    I am trying to open my browser with MSN Bing. In the old days before Windows10 you had the option of going to Internet Options, selecting the browser you wanted for your home page and that was it. All I get now is Google every time I open Internet Explorer. Whilst I use Google quite a lot, I really don't want it as my Home Page. Would some one please tell me how I can make the necessary changes so I can go back to MSN.co.uk as my Home page please?

    Thanks and best wishes,

    Hi there...

    What about if you open Internet Options, then on Home page section, hit the "Use default" button. Click Apply and OK afterwards.

    Or, go to MSN.co.uk then open Internet Options, on Home page section, click on "Use current" button.

    Are you confusing Microsoft Edge with IE?
    The procedure is still the same in IE. First, load the web page you want to be your Home Page. Then Go to the little Gear icon on the toolbar on the Upper Right of IE. Go to Internet Options, under Home Page choose Use Current to set the page you are on to your Home Page.
    In Microsoft Edge, there are a few other steps. Close all tabs, go to the site of what you want the Home Page to be. Highlight the address in the address bar and copy it. Go to the 3 dots on the Far right of the tool bar and choose Settings. Under Open Microsoft Edge With.. take the drop down arrow and choose A specific Page or pages, paste the Home Page Address in. Click the Save icon.

    On Edge, you'll have to get into Settings, scroll down and toggle the "View advanced settings". Enter your desired URL under "Show the home button" section and Save.
