    Home page doesn't come up


    Greetings: Re: Windows 8 Laptop. My homepage doesn't appear when I boot. Basically, I get a page that I looked at last. First thing I did was go to Internet Options to make sure the box which says to open with home page is checked and it is. Browser is IE.

    Are you using the IE app or the desktop browser? I am not familiar with the app, but I can help with the desktop one.

    When I sign on I go to the IE app and expect that I would see my homepage. (msn) but it's the page I was on when I shut down. Even as I am using it, Let's say that I am on Yahoo, and I finished what I wanted to do and I hit the Windows key and get back to my apps and hit IE app, I will get Yahoo, instead of the home page.
