When you open up your internet explorer browser, look for the Tools option on the upper portion of the page. Then, click on internet options, when internet options page has opened up, you will see there an item for homepage. Type the homepage that you want on the box. If you want google, type in www.google.com then click on the Apply button on the lower portion then click on OK. Try to reopen internet explorer so that google will open up.

I had and liked my at&t homepage, now I get this yahoo home page that I do NOT like or want, how do I get back to my at&t homepage ???? Thanks for any input you can give me [email protected]


Depending on your browser, you should have a "tools" slide down options bar at the top of your web page, once you get the list of options, you should see a button that either says Internet options or just options, click on it. when the subsidary window opens you should see a text field that says "home page" click inside the field and type in the address of your desired homepage and then click the "apply" button on the bottom of that window. close you internet browser, and when it re-opens it should go to that page automatically.
