The homepage is the first page that opens when the Web browser starts. When you start your Web browser, it automatically opens a new window. If you want to open your favorite page after you start your Web browser, you can set the homepage to a specific page. For example, if you like to check the news on your computer every day, set the homepage to the news site page, so that it is the first thing you see when you open your browser. Overall, all web browsers allow you to change the home page to what you want it to look like. This forces the browser to open a specific site each time it opens the browser. Here are three main browsers. Follow these steps.
