If you have a Yahoo! account, you have the option of customizing your "My Yahoo!" homepage. My Yahoo! differs from the standard Yahoo! homepage.
On the standard homepage, you can only customize the "My Favorites" area.
When you access My Yahoo!, you can personalize your page so that it features the subject areas that most interest you.
You can also apply a favorite color or theme to the background of the page.
These customizations allow you to have a personalized experience on the Yahoo! website and saves you time by isolating the information that matters most to you.
Visit the Yahoo! homepage and log in using your username and password.
Click on the My Yahoo! link in the upper left area of the page.
Change the appearance of your My Yahoo! page.
Click the "Change Appearance" button that appears in the blue bar in the middle of the screen.
Choose your theme by clicking through the Colors, Textures and other menu items and clicking on the options you like best.
Don't overlook the arrows in the lower right that will let you scroll through additional options.
Once you choose a theme, you can customize that theme and change its layout by using the menu options on the left side of the page.
