Make google my homepage


I will go under the assumption that you are using internet explorer.
Open up Internet explorer and look at the top right of the screen, there you should see a 'cog' symbol. After clicking on it a list of options come up, click on the one that says "Internet options" and another information box will come onto the screen. When this text box is loaded, the first section in general options will have your homepage settings. Simply type in google.com and then click on apply in the lower right.
Now, close the text box after following these steps and open a new internet tab, it should now be google.com.
Hope this helps.
