To change your default page in Internet Explorer, there are several options depending on your version.
In Explorer 9, go to the page you want to use as default, then click the “down” arrow key by the “Home” icon (looks like a house) and choose the option to change the home page. Then, choose whether you want to use it only as the default on the first tab, on the current tab or all tabs.
In the various versions of Internet Explorer, just click “Tools” on the command bar. If it is not showing, right-click in the area where the bars are displayed and click the command bar, then choose “Internet Options” and then type or paste the address of the page you want to use for your home page into the box. If you are already on the page that you want to use, then just click “Current.” Then, click “OK” to close it.
If the menu bar appears, you can follow the steps in the last paragraph by choosing “Tools” in the Menu bar.
