    Windows 8.1 x64 with 8.1 Update

    Internet Explorer goes to my usual home page


    Hi

    I just installed W8.1 on my Laptop, I formatted the hard drive and did a clean install,
    when I opened Internet Explorer it went to my usual home page??

    How is that possible? I have not set up a home page since installing W8.1.

    Very curious.

    Cheers

    Hello Daniel,

    Since you are using a Microsoft account, your settings synced from online to it.

    Thanks

    it was a bit of a surprise, I'm not worried about it, it's just that I did not know that the data was kept
    by MS.

    But I'm loving W8 and 8.1 now that you have fixed my Start button issue.

    Cheers
