SOURCE: how to change my default browser because now my

Hi. Since you failed to indicate the operating system of your computer, I've shown steps for Windows XP,Windows Vista or Windows 7.

For Windows XP:

1. Open the Start Menu, and click Set Program Access and Defaults.
2. It will open the Add or Remove Programs window, with the Set Program Access and Default button selected on the left.

Below the "Choose a Configuration" header, click Custom and it will list all the default programs options it found for Default Web Browser, Default E-mail Program, and Default Media Player.

3. Under "Choose a default Web browser", tick Internet Explorer and make sure that all boxes are ticked for "Enable Access to this program."

For Windows Vista or 7, the steps above are almost the same but another way is to :

  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. If a message is displayed asking if you want Internet Explorer to be your default browser, click Yes. That's all you need to do.
  3. If a message does not appear, go to the next step.
  4. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
  5. Click the Programs tab, and then click Make default.
  6. Click OK, and then close Internet Explorer.
  7. Internet Explorer is now the default web browser.

Hope this helps.

In Google Chrome, click on the picture of a Wrench in the top right hand corner. The click on "Options". Near the bottom of the page will be your search options. Click on "Manage Search Engines" to select your default.

In Firefox, click on the Icon in the search box. Then click on "Manage Search Engines". From here you can move google to the top of the list, making it your default search engine. If for some reason you don't see google in the list, you can click on "Get more search engines" to locate and install it.

How do I change my search engine for my home page?

Warning: If your search engine has recently changed and the URL in the address line of your browser has a long link in it, you probably have a virus or malware that has hijacked your search engine.

Otherwise, bring up the General tab on the Options or Internet Options for your browser and key in the url you want for the home page (e.g. and click the OK button. If you click on the house icon on the browser (or restart the browser) that will be the page that comes up.

If it resets to the previous value, you have malware and will need to run anti-malware software to fix it... which is a whole different discussion.
