Windows 10: Stop MSN as Home Page

    Stop MSN as Home Page

    I found out how to do this. I have tried different versions on changing settings and home pages and discovered when you try to set a new home page, what Windows 10 does is to add the new address as a tab at the top of the page but still opens with MSN. What the sites have not said is that the MSN address is still there and is top in the list. It is an address that has the word about in it. It would not let me move that address to the bottom of the list and the only way I got my Google homepage that I wanted was to click on the X to the right of the about address and delete it. Now when I open up, my desired home page comes up and I don't have to look at MSN's bias headlines.

    You do not mention which browser you are talking about, I assume Edge.

    It is really simple to set any site or sites to open when Edge is launched. Simply select Open Microsoft Edge with specific page or pages, and add sites in that order you will see them when you launch Edge:
