    MSN opens when not online


    I often fire up my laptop where there is no wireless. If I then open Chrome my default home page does not open but instead MSN home page opens. How do I prevent this?

    Change Homepage in Google Chrome for Windows

    Use the 'On startup' and 'Appearance' settings and Step 6 to customize.

    Is your Chrome up to date ? I follow the tutorial and see this section at bottom of Settings page. R-click the hamburger menu (under my Edit/Remove' box in screenshot) to get the option to replace google.co.uk by typing in whatever you want to be your startup page or homepage.

    "open a specific page already have google.com as my preferred start page."
    Replace it with whatever you want with Edit option by hitting the 3 dot button on R side of the frame with all the options.

    "And yet MSN appears if i am offline."
    Post a screenshot, I don't understand unless you are confusing Start page with Home page (page that appears when you hit the House/Home button).

    This page loads - MSN UK | Latest news, Hotmail sign in, Outlook email, Skype, live scores

    Then immediately after this page follows - MSN UK | Latest news, Hotmail sign in, Outlook email, Skype, live scores NOT Google - my home page - the one when I press the house. This ONLY happens when I am not on line.
