Keeping a Home Page

  miles right 20:26 15 Jan 2006

Can anybody please tell me which buttons to press to keep Google as my home page? Explorer keeps defaulting to MSN. I have pressed the buttons on 'options'to no avail. Is there another way?

Sorry don't know what google x is?
I used to be able to go home. ie to google, by 'clickinh' on the little house but now i keep going to msn. How can i get it back? Even setting google as my home page via the page or the google toolbar makes no difference. I still go to MSN!!!!

If you go to Google, then click on Tools then Internet Options, in the window that opens click on the Use current button, click on apply, OK and that should make it your home page.

In IE explorer either open Google then go to Tools, Options and use current page or when in Tools, Options type in click here

If you are usung Ad-aware, it will try to set MSN as the home page. You can change this in Ad-aware.

Something that might interest you.

Open Google and add it to your favourites. Then find it in your favourites list, Right click it and select 'Send To'. Click on Desktop(create shortcut) in the list.

Now, on your desktop, you will have a direct link to Google.

This way you can have as many 'Home Pages' as you want.

When I want to connect to the internet, I can click on the Icon for PCA or Google News or maybe the BBC home page.

Hope this is a help.
