Go to Tools - Internet Options - On the General tab look down to tabs and click on settings. In the small window that opens you should see "when a new tab is opened: open" in the drop down box select "your first home page".
Thanks guy. Up till a couple of days ago - or so - it was always automatic - no need to type anything.
WW: Thanks again. That worked.
I have no idea how it changed - I certainly knew nothing about that menu.
I did download something a couple of weeks ago, which brought Chrome with it (see my post back then). Probably just a coincidance, but I had a couple of tiny glitches just after that. At the time, my G.Earth stopped working/loading etc.
I deleted Chrome. I deleted G.Earth & reinstalled, but it still didn't load.
If I have time today or tomorrow, I'll try a new download/install, to see if its any better.
although I have to clear reindeer muck off the roof first,,,,,,,,,,,
