I have a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7. I have used this laptop for over 9 months, & have always logged in at www.yshoo.com

Homepage keeps changing to ask


Take a look when it asks and select to keep the page ..and also tick the case for never asks this question again ..This is happening when you install a certain program or software that has its own toolbar and is attempting to use it and it is different than the one you use.. (for example you use google for a search engine and you just installed yahoo messenger and cause yahoo is working with its own search engine ..it will try to suggest it ....but if you select never to ask again on that window it will pass

I can't open any of the boxes, ie inbox, outbox? I can open my main yahoo email page


I find that IE is outdated now a days and it is far more better to download and install "Google chrome" and use as a primary browser. Chrome has Java, flash and other necessary components pre installed within the browser so no need to install them in your PC,also bowsing and downloading is 10 times faster that IE. You can even play games from the APPs section without installing them in your PC. so give it a try ... Great app.

Login to your yahoo email and click on your username in the upper-right corner and select Account Info. You may have to retype your existing password again for security purposes. Then click change your password. Enter your current password and choose your new password. Save. That's it.

Hello there,

There is an option to use the Yahoo! Classic mail.
