Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

In the past, when I logged on I went straight to the Yahoo Home Page. Now when I log on I get an AOL screen and I have to get to Yahoo using the Favourites option. I never asked to be involved in AOL. How did this happen - was this an automatic Compaq update - if it is I never got prior notice and I do not know what to do with this AOL Page. Thanks.

Hi,
If you are using windows Outlook express, Internet surf to the page you want to have as your home page. Click on the menu

-tools
-Internet options
-general

At the very top of this window you should be able to choose your home page.

My Windows xp version offers me the option to just

"click here to use current as home page". Then:

-apply
-okay

Your version may be different.

If you are not an outlook user or don't understand any of this please just post as much info as you can about what you know about your computor and I'll get back to you.

    There are many different insidious ways software gets you to agree to have their page as your Home Page. It's not evil, it's just irritating. We can change it.

Yahoo has been experiencing a system wide problem. Many of Yahoo! Mail customers are experiencing the same problem you're having.

To assist Yahoo mail customers with this problem, AOL will transfer all of your contact information and future emails from your Yahoo account to your new AOL account for the next 30 days for free. (Until Yahoo can correct the problem). You won't miss any emails from your Yahoo account.. They will be automatically forwarded to your new AOL account.

Here are the instructions:

1) Go to AOL and set up a new AOL email account. (Click on this link) https://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp?seamless=novl&locale=us&offerId=newmail-en-us-v2&siteState=ver%3A4'rt%3ASTANDARD'at%3ASNS'ld%3Awebmail.aol.com'uv%3AAOL'lc%3Aen-us'mt%3AAOL'snt%3AScreenName'sid%3Af27fcb24-926a-4b22-ac39-ac0d19e1d3f4&authLev=0&sitedomain=sns.webmail.aol.com&lang=en

2) During the set up process you will be asked to provide a security question. Later, you'll need to answer the security question to set up the transfer, so don't forget the answer.

3) Once your new AOL account is set up, go to your AOL email page. Look in the upper right hand top corner for the word, SETTINGS and click on it.

4) (Next page) On the left hand side, look for the word, Accounts and click on it.

5) (Next Page) Look on the line beginning with, Transfer Accounts and locate the link that reads, AOL Easy Transfer and click on it.

6) (Next Page) Agree to the terms of service and click on, Get Started.

7) (Next Page) Under Copy from, enter your Yahoo email address and password.

8) Under Copy to, enter your new AOL email address and password.

9) (Next Page) Carefully Read, and select the options you need. (Click, Continue)

10) (Next Page) Click, Go to AOL Mail.

11) (Next Page) Enter the answer to your security question you created when you set up your new AOL email account. (Click, Continue)

12) (Next Page) Look at the top Left hand corner and click on, MAIL.

That's it. (Although AOL says that it may take up to 24 hours to complete the process - it usually only takes about 30 minutes.) After you receive your confirmation email, Click on your Contacts in your AOL account. When you see your Contacts from your Yahoo account there, the transfer has completed.

You don't use the AOLdesktop app.
To use AOL as your home page in Safari, use the following URL address
http://www.aol.com/
Once there, log on to your account and then in the Safari Preferences General Tab, click on "set to current page" in the home page option.
