    If you had reset Internet Explorer, then that would have also reset the homepage back to the default MSN as well.

    You would just need to go to the site you want to set as you homepage to be able to set it as such using the method in the tutorial below.

    i understood what you showed above but i don't have a little 'arrow' showing up by the rite - maybe Win 8 has a different config for choices than 7 - but i think i'll just stop hitting buttons and just use the lenovo msn for a while 'if' i ever need an 'emergency' browser should anything happen with ''Chrome' -i'm using that all the time anyway...- i don't know the official 'address'' of Internet Explorer' but i'm pretty sure that's was showing originally in that area as my 'home page' (before my 'damage=control) ... since i'm not using it now as a 'browser' i'll just let it 'sit' until i get up the nerve to try going to a 'site' then typing that site's address into the ''home page' block in IE then hitting ok/apply . (i assume i get the 'legal' address right off the search area showing once i get to that 'chosen-site' ..... : 'www. blah blah''..copy/paste it into that area then o.k./apply ...
    Thanks so much for all your help !!!!

    That's ok. You can right click on the home button instead like in OPTION THREE below.

    IE has no web address. It is a program on your PC. But you can start with just a blank page.

    Opps - didn't realize IE doesn't have an 'address' - LOL - now that you mention ''blank page' maybe 'that's what i remember as being in place - thanks so much for your kind help ! edythe
