The default is set by Microsoft. You can adjust things to appear as you wish when you open the program, but the reset to default will always revert back to the way it was installed on your system, aside from favorites, etc.

Hi smb343646205,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the Operating System you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

Anyways, try to reset the Internet Explorer Settings to resolve the problem.

To use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature from Control Panel, follow these steps:
  1. Exit all programs, including Internet Explorer (if it is running).
  2. If you use Windows XP, click Start, and then click Run. Type the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER: inetcpl.cpl If you use Windows Vista, click Start. Type the following command in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER: inetcpl.cpl The Internet Options dialog box appears. Click the Advanced tab. Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again. When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box. Start Internet Explorer again. The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature restores the following items to their default settings:
    1. Home pages
    2. Search scopes
    3. Browsing history
    4. Form data
    5. Passwords
    6. Appearance settings
    7. Toolbars
    8. ActiveX controls


    Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

I can not get the printer to print from the internet in bigger size font all the words come out very small


If you are using Internet Explorer 7 or 8 you have an option to scale the size of the printouts. The default settings is to have Internet Explorer fit everything to the page.

Instructions on how to change these settings can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/community/columns/shrunk.mspx

Win internet explorer not responding; so i have toshut down the program & start over. how do i fix this


Hi,
Usually it is caused by a failing extension or an add-on to your internet explorer. Sometimes, it is caused by the settings as well that some websites tries to add on your internet explorer. you can either reset the entire internet explorer or just put the default settings back. here's what you need to do: -open your internet explorer -click on tools -select internet options -go to the advance tab -select whether you want to reset default settings or reset the entire IE. (I suggest trying the reset default settings first because resetting the IE will delete your favorites / bookmarks as well). -re open IE and see the changes
hope this helps.

Internet exploer closes after I sign in to Yahoo on windows vista


Yes, you are infected. Go to safernetworking.org and download spybot search and destroy the current version.

Go through the thing carefully. If you need a detailed explanation on how to configure it to clean out the system, because it will need to be configured properly, then it can get out the infection.

If it can't, there is another way, but this is the easy way.
