Set up home pages so that every time you open Internet Explorer the sites you visit the most will be open and waiting for you.

To add or change home pages

  1. On the Start screen, tap or click Internet Explorer to open Internet Explorer.

  2. Go to a page that you'd like to set as a home page.

  3. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, then tap Settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the bottom-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, then click Settings.)

  4. Tap or click Options, and under Home pages, tap or click Customize.

  5. Tap or click Add current site, edit the URL if you'd like, and then tap or click Add to make the site one of your home pages.

The next time you open a new browsing session, this site and any other sites you've set up as home pages will load automatically.

To add or change home pages in the desktop

  1. Open the desktop, and then tap or click the Internet Explorer icon on the taskbar.

  2. Tap or click the Tools button Tools button, and then tap or click Internet options.
  3. On the General tab, under Home page, enter the URL of the site you want to set as a home page. You can add more than one URL, or add the site you're currently viewing by tapping or clicking Use current. If you add more than on URL, put each URL on its own line.

  4. Tap or click Apply, and then tap or click OK. The next time you open a new browsing session or window (or tap or click the Home button), your home pages will be loaded automatically.

Note

  • Your home pages only appear when you open a new browsing session or a new window, or when you tap or click the Home button in Internet Explorer for the desktop.

  • If you add a site as a home page in Internet Explorer for the desktop, it will get added to Internet Explorer opened from Start, and vice versa.
