How to Change Your Home Page In Internet Explorer 9

The Internet Options dialog should now be displayed, overlaying your browser window. Select the General tab if it is not already selected. The first section in this tab, labeled Home page, displays your browser's current home page information. In the example above the home page is currently set to about: blank, meaning that a blank page will load whenever IE9 is launched or whenever a user clicks on the Home Page icon.

There are several options within this section, each a different method for setting your home page or home page tabs. The first method is manual entry, which allows you to enter your home page or home page tabs in the edit field provided. Simply type the URL of your desired home page in the section that contains about: blank in the example above. To create home page tabs, otherwise known as multiple home pages, enter each URL on a separate line in this same section.

The second method, which I utilize in this tutorial, is to make your home page the current page which you are viewing. To accomplish this, click on the button labeled Use current. The third method is to set your home page to the default value integrated within IE9. To do this, click on the button labeled Use default. The fourth and final method is to set your home page value to about: blank, achieved by clicking on the Use blank button.
