Set Your Internet Browser Homepage

Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome each provide you with the ability to set a homepage that opens each time you launch your browser. This help page will explain how to set a default homepage in each of these browsers.

  2. Navigate to the desired homepage, such as the Cedarville University FacStaff or Student homepages. Make sure you don't have multiple tabs open on your window.
  3. Go to "Tools" > "Options...."
  4. Go to the [Main] tab.
