Go to your browser's options or setting page. There you will see a setting to set the homepage to a URL.

SOURCE: I WANT GOOGLE FOR MY HOME PAGE ONLY

Many times, downloading a toolbar will automatically set your homepage whether you wanted it to or not. First, I would check to see if you have any toolbars installed (I remove all of them).

Click on Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features

If present, right-click on the Ask Toolbar and select Uninstall.

Next, return to Control Panel and open Internet Options. Under the Homepage box, enter http://google.com/ and click on the Apply button. This should solve your problem.

If the homepage continues to revert back to the other pages, you more than likely have a running application causing the browser to automatically select the scripted page. I would then recommend downloading Google Chrome or Firefox to use as a web browser. If you already use Google Chrome and the problem is happening, download again to revert the settings back to default.

SOURCE: My google mail on my home page isn't loading.

The only few things I can think of are:

1. Cookies - which you say you cleared
2. Delete browsing History
3. Check to ensure you date and time are correct (windows clock, lower right of screen)

Hope this helps

I wonder why my google home page instead of ask.com ,how can i get the google back to home page ?


It's because you changed your homepage. Go to settings on your browser and there will be a button called "change homepage" or "add homepage" something like that. Once you click that you will be asked to type the address and remove the existing one and type the one you want! In your case it's google.com

if this doesn't work maybe you have ask toolbar installed. You will have to remove it!

How do I change my home page to Google from Ask.com?


I think this is more of a browser setting you need than an email problem.

On Chrome :

Follow these steps to adjust your homepage settings:
  1. Click the Chrome menu snp_9721c573e41777fba43e1498ad084e3b160c_2696434_en_v2 on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings.
    • Add the home button to the browser toolbar
      Homepage button is off by default. Select the "Show Home button" checkbox in the "Appearance" section to show it on the browser toolbar.
    • Set your homepage
      When the "Show Home button" checkbox is selected, a web address appears below it. If you want the Homepage button to open up a different webpage, click Change to enter a link. You can also choose the New Tab page as your homepage.

Firefox:
If you want to change your home page customizations, this is the way to do it.
  1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button and then select Options
  2. Select the General panel.
  3. Type in the URL in the Home_page textbox
