How do i change my homepage to Yahoo?


Bring up the browser window and let it load to whatever page it is set for. Once it loads, click up in the address bar and type in www.Yahoo.com and click enter. When the Yahoo screen loads, click on the "Tools" column and scroll down to "Internet Options". In this window the first area you see is the homepage tab. Click on "Use Current", this will make the current page your home page, which is Yahoo. Click apply and OK.

Somebody installed windows live on my computer i now have msn as my desk top i want to go back to google classic


Hi. I am assuming you are talking about the page that Internet Explorer goes to when you first open it. If that is the case, try this:

Windows Vista (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. Click the arrow to the right of the Home button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4aa01e82-2732-4ac7-b246-a06c904f2c2c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then click Add or Change home page.
In the Add or Change Home Page dialog box, do one of the following:
• To make the current webpage your only home page, click Use this webpage as your only home page.
• 4. To start a home page tab set or to add the current webpage to your set of home page tabs, click Add this webpage to your home page tabs.
• To replace your existing home page or home page tab set with the webpages you currently have open, click Use the current tab set as your home page. This option will only be available if you have more than one tab open in Internet Explorer.
5. Click Yes to save your changes.

Windows XP (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Programs or All Programs, and clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. On the pull-down menus at the top of the window, click the Tools menu and choose Internet Options (if the Tools is not showing at the top of the page, you can access it using the Tools pull-down menu located on the right side of the window).
4. To make the current webpage your home page, click the “Use Current” button.
5. Click OK to save your changes.

Hope this helps!

Scanjet 5400c won't scan in Vista Home Premium


Unfortunately, your scanner is not compatible with Windows Vista and there are no drivers available to make it compatible. I found the following message on the HP website when I searched for Vista drivers for your product:

We are sorry to inform you that there will be no Windows Vista support available for your HP product. Therefore your product will not work with Windows Vista. If you are using the Windows Vista operating system on your computer, please consider upgrading to a newer HP product that is supported on Windows Vista. HP has numerous products on the market that support Windows Vista. If you are in the US, see http://www.hp.com/united-states/tradein/home_flash.html . If you are outside the US, click the How to buy link at the top of the page.

I'm trying to installing my software ( resume maker edition career) the system is let me know this software is not compatible for window vista. can you help me let me know what kind of program I need to...


Hello

Microsoft had change backward compatability when it come to produce vista for end user, so most of the softwares developed for the earlier softwares did not run on windows vista, although i don't know which type of vista you are using, but vista home basic support some of the obselete softwares. Why not try to use vista home basic and see wheather you will succeed. Or I will say you download the softwares from the developers site which is compatible for vista OS.

Enjoy.
