Like all web browsers, the new Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 too, lets you set a single home page or multiple homepages. We have already seen how to change the home page for the other major browsers. Now since Microsoft Edge is the default browser in Windows 10 and it is quite likely that you will enjoy using it, so let us see how to do it.
A home page is a web address that is opened automatically when you fire up your web browser. You can set your favorite website, blog or search engine as your home page or you can set a blank page too.
Set a single Homepage in Edge browser
Open your Edge (Chromium) browser and click on the 3-dotted ‘Settings & More’ menu.
Next click on Settings.
Under ‘Settings‘ panel, click ‘Startup‘ section.
Here you can set Edge browser to:
- Open a new tab page
- Continue where you left off
- Open a specific page or pages.
Select the option marked against ‘Open a specific page or pages‘ option.
Hit ‘Add a new page‘ button.
Thereafter, in the window that opens, type the address of the new website and hit the ‘Add‘ button.
If you would like to edit or delete the new website added, click the 3 dots.
Set multiple Homepages on Microsoft Edge
Similarly, if you would like to add more websites to your Homepage. follow the steps outlined above.
If there are multiple sites opened, all of which you would like to add to your Homepage, select ‘Use all open tabs’ to convert all your open web pages to home pages.
The action will clear your current list of pages and replace them with all your currently open Edge tabs i.e., it will override preset configurations.
Lastly, if you wish to set a blank page as your home page, enter about:blank.
I hope you find this small tip useful!
