I need to make my homepage google but i dont know how to


This all depends on the browser you are using. Start the browser you want to set. For Internet Explorer, select Tools, Internet Options from the pull-down menu and type in the home page address in the box on the General tab.
For Google Chrome, click on the button with the three horizontal lines, to the right of the address window. Select Settings from the pull-down menu. For the setting 'On Startup' select 'Open a specific page or set of pages', click on the 'set pages' and type in the web address of the page you want.

Great Google Secrets


Google is clearly the best general-purpose search engine on the web.

But most people don't use it to its best advantage. Do you just plug in a keyword or two and hope for the best? That may be the quickest way to search, but with more than 3 billion pages in Google's index, it's still a struggle to pare results to a manageable number.

But Google is an remarkably powerful tool that can ease and enhance your Internet exploration. Google's search options go beyond simple keywords, the Web, and even its lesser-known options.

Syntax Search Tricks
Using a special syntax is a way to tell Google that you want to restrict your searches to certain elements or characteristics of web pages. Google has a fairly complete list of its syntax elements at www.google.com/help/operators.html

Here are some advanced operators that can help narrow down your search results.

Intitle: at the beginning of a query word or phrase (intitle:"Three Blind Mice") restricts your search results to just the titles of web pages.

Intext: does the opposite of intitle:, and so forth.
Intext: is perfect when what you're searching for might commonly appear in URLs. If you're looking for the term HTML, for example, and you don't want to get results such as www.mysite.com/index.html.

Link: lets you see which pages are linking to your web page or to another page you're interested in. For example, try typing in link:http://www.mysite.com.

Try using site: (which restricts results to top-level domains) with intitle: to find certain types of pages. For example, get scholarly pages about Mark Twain by searching for intitle:"Mark Twain"site:edu. Experiment with mixing various elements; you'll develop several strategies for finding the stuff you want more effectively. The site: command is very helpful as an alternative to the mediocre search engines built into many sites.

Swiss Army Google
Google has a number of services that can help you accomplish tasks you may never have thought to use Google for. For example, the new calculator feature (www.google.com/help/features.html#calculator) lets you do both math and a variety of conversions from the search box. For extra fun, try the query "Answer to life the universe and everything."

Let Google help you figure out whether you've got the right spelling-and the right word-for your search. Enter a misspelled word or phrase into the query "Answer to life the universe and everything."

Let Google help you figure out whether you've got the right spelling-and the right word-for your search. Enter a misspelled word or phrase into the query box (try"three blind mice") and Google may suggest a proper spelling. This doesn't always succeed; it works best when the word you're searching for can be found in a dictionary. Once you search for a properly spelled word, look at the results page, which repeats your query. (If you're searching for "three blind mice," underneath the search window will appear a statement such as Searched the web for "three blind mice." You'll discover that you can click on each work in your search phrase and get a definition from a dictionary.

Suppose you want to contact someone and don't have his phone number handy. Google can help you withb that, too. Just enter a name, city, and state. If a phone number matches the listing, you'll see it at the top of the search results along with a map link to the address. If you'd rather restrict your results, use phonebook: for residential listing or phonebook: for business listings. If you'd rather use a search form for business phone listings, try Yellow Search (www.buzztoolbox.com/google/yellowsearch.shtml).

Extended Googling
Google offers several services that give you a head start in focusing your search. Google Groups (http://groups.google.com).

Indexes literally millions of messages from decades of discussion on Usenet. Google even helps you with your shopping via two tools: Froogle
CODE (http://froogle.google.com),

Which indexes products from online stores, and Google Catalogs
CODE (http://catalogs.google.com),

which features products from more 6,000 paper catalogs in a searchable index. And this only scratches the surface. You can get a complete list of Google's tools and services at www.google.com/options/index.html.

You're probably used to using Google in your browser. But have you ever thought of using Google outside your browser?

Google Alert
monitors your search terms and e-mails you information about new additions to Google's web index. (Google Alert is not affiliated with Google; ti uses Google's Web services API to perform its searches.) If you're more interested in news stories than general web content, check out the beta version of Google News Alerts.

More Google API Applications

Staggernation.com offers three tools based on the Google API. The Google API Web Search by Host (GAWSH) lists the Web hosts of the results for a given query (www.staggernation.com/gawsh/).

when you click on the triangle next to each host, you get a list of results for that host. The Google API Relation Browsing Outliner (GARBO) is a little more complicated: You enter a URL and choose whether you want pages that related to the URL or linked to the URL (www.staggernation.com/garbo/).

Click on the triangle next to an URL to get a list of pages linked or related to that particular URL. CapeMail is an e-mail search application that allows you to send an e-mail to google@capeclear.com with the text of your query in the subject line and get the first ten results for that query back. Maybe it's not something you'd do everyday, but if you cell phone does e-mail and doesn't do web browsing, this is a very handy address to know.

Good luck!

Unable to open browsers (any) on emachines windows 7


b>All you want to do is view a particular website, but when you open Internet Explorer and type in the web address or click on the page in your Internet Explorer Favorites, the page does not appear. Instead, you read a message announcing that the page cannot be displayed. Through some troubleshooting, you can determine whether the issue is with your connection, the website you are trying to view or Internet Explorer. Once the problem has been identified, it might be an uncomplicated fix.

Find out whether you can view any web pages. Open Internet Explorer and type in the address of a site with which you are unfamiliar. If you need an idea, look around the room and type in a brand name you see, such as Phillips.com" or "Teak.com." The reason for this is that if you have recently visited a site, the "cached" files might appear on your screen and not provide an accurate determination. If you are able to see a new site, the issue is likely with the website you are trying to visit. Check the connection to the modem or router. If you are unable to view any web pages, your connection might have been lost. Check physical connections to see if anything is unplugged. If you are using a wireless connection, verify that it is still working. Unplug the modem. Pull both the power cord and the phone line or Ethernet plug out of the back of the modem and leave it alone for a few minutes. Plug the cords back in and allow it to power up completely. Try the connection again. Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or Click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type each adress on its own line (type in google.com) or your preferred home page and browser below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search Providers Toolbar extensions and Accelerators you have have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them

Click start type cmd press enter you will be in DOS mode type in ipconfig press enter you will see all of your internet connection details or type in your default gateway adress into your internet search should read something like 10.0.0.138 to get an inertnet connection Contact your Internet service provider. A cable, DSL or phone line outage is a common cause for connectivity issues. Delete Internet Explorer's history. Close any open applications and open a new Internet Explorer window. Click "Tools" and then click "Delete Browsing History." Click each "Delete" button, except passwords if you allow IE to retain them for you. Hope this helps.
