Change your start page in Edge

I’ve got a new Windows 10 work PC and I find that I’m using Microsoft Edge a lot more than I did back when I only had it available on my personal-use laptop. I like it a lot, but it is a lot different than Internet Explorer. Today, I’m going to show you how to set your start page for Edge. The default start is the MSN news page. If you like seeing that when you start, up feel free to leave it there.

If you want something else, click the 3-dot menu bar at the top right. Then choose Settings from the drop-down menu.

You have the choice of  Start page (the default MSN.com), the previously open pages, a new tab, or a specific page or pages. I’m choosing A specific page or pages.

Type in the name of the site you wish to start with and click the Save icon to the right of the box.

  1. Its your start page, but not your home page. For that you need to go to advanced settings, make sure home button is on, then add specific page and save.
