How-To Change Home Page In IE8

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

George from IN writes:

How can I get rid of AOL as the home page for Explorer 8? I want to keep AOL as a program, but not as the home page that opens automatically in Explorer 8. What can I do?

Hey, George – to change your home page in Internet Explorer 8 all you need to do is to go to a webpage you would like to be your new home page (for example then click on Tools > Internet Options > General and click Use Current.

You should now see as your home page. Click OK, then close Internet Explorer. When you reopen it your home page should go to (or whatever page you set it to.)

P.S. For an updated web browser (one which may run better than Internet Explorer 8), I would recommend downloading Mozilla Firefox by clicking here. Remember, you can have both Firefox and Internet Explorer installed at the same time, so you can always switch back to using Internet Explorer if you don’t like how Firefox handles.
