When you want to surf the internet, you first have to click on a browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) The page that is displayed after the browser has been clicked is called the Internet Home Page. For example if I click on my browser ‘the small blue e’ called Internet Explorer, my Internet Home Page is displayed which happens to be Helping Bee. When you click on the browser on your computer what internet page is displayed? Is it AT&T, MSN, Comcast, Dell or some internet home page that you don’t normally visit? Do you want to change the internet home page? If so, here is how to change your Internet Home Page:
First, decide what internet page you want displayed when your browser opens. Choose one that you visit often.
If you know the URL (web address), type it in the address bar or search for it on Google. For instance Helping Bee’s website is www.helpingbee.com
Copy the internet address or write the internet address down.
