There is a very simple way to do this. Obviously you must have another email account than gmail. Let's suppose you want to make Firefox , but this trick will work for any browser. BTW Don't go with Internet Explorer - there's an old saying that is still true, "Friends don't let Friends use Internet Explorer". But if that's your choice that's your business. Just reinstall your browser and when it asks, "Do you want to make this your default browser" just click yes. No messing around with menus. If you don't have the current installation file, download it, install it and when it asks that question just click yes. Now you're up to date and you have the homepage that you want. :)

SOURCE: How Do I Remove Google Chrome as my home page? IT

When Chrome is open, click on the little wrench on the right side of the address bar.
Click on "options" and then the home page option.
You can type in the home page you want. Optionally, if you first go to the page you want and then go to options, you can choose the "use the new tab page" option.
var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_61aae5a387164a1a91bba1dda727f83c(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_c8d4ea2d6ffe49c2a33b77eb84079a4e(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

How do I remove ask form been my homepage and put google back as my homepage?


You downloaded some thing and you didn't remove the check mark from ASK Toolbar, or similar which was bundled with whatever you downloaded.

you might like to download and run MalwareBytes Anti-malware. It is free, or at least you only need the free version. I have the paid version because it prevents malicious intrusions like you have found. https://www.malwarebytes.org/downloads/

I do not want G Chrome. I am trying to make Google my home and browser I am a novice


From your question, it is understood that you want to set Google.com as homepage on your web browser. Also, whenever you try to open your browser, you are getting Ask search.

For your information, Ask search is a kind of virus which infects your browser and changes browser settings without your knowledge. Hence, it is vital to remove it completely from your computer. To do this, the following link can be helpful:

Once you have removed Ask from your computer, you can set Google.com as you homepage by following the instructions mentioned on the following link:

Make google my home page


You didn\'t specify what browser you\'re using nor what operating system you\'re using. Assume you\'re using Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) and Windows 7.



When I see the "Ask" homepage and/or "Ask Toolbar" problem, it usually tells me there\'s adware/spyware on the system. Ask components are not just a single program but usually consist of multiple pieces that you have to take care of. You may need to take aggressive action to remove "Ask" features. It can take quite a while to remove Ask and return control of the home page to you. This article from PC Magazine will give you a decent start: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2421591,00.asp



There are a thousand web articles out there talking about how to remove Ask components, both automated and manual. Some of them start out with a treatment of the system using MalwareBytes or SuperAntiSpyWare programs. Both of these offer free scanning and cleaning. They will not remove Ask but will help you get rid of most other infestations to ensure a stable platform before you begin. I often find the manual Ask removal procedure to be the most thorough but one that takes more time and effort. Try the easy ones first - you may get lucky.



Once you\'ve ridded your system of the Ask junk, you will then be able to have your Google Home Page back. In the IE browser, call up Google.com. Then use Tools > Internet Options. Look at the top panel of the General tab. Delete everything in the field. You\'ll see a button to the left called "Use Current", click that and Google.com should now be your home page.



If you fail to completely remove Ask, Ask SearchBar, Ask Toolbar, and all Ask components, I\'m afraid this Ask home page hijack may come back to haunt you until you do get rid of it.



Ask is usually injected on a system when you download and install software, for instance Java. Most reputable software vendors (like the folks who make Java) will let you OPT OUT of the Ask component -but- it is up to you, the user, to pay attention and take the OptOut path. Blindly clicking through a software install, whether downloaded from the \'net or off a disk, is just asking for it.
