"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have the Internet Explorer Icon on your desktop already, right click the mouse, go to properties and under the general tab, type in the page you want in the homepage address.  Than hit apply in the lower box and exit.  Hope this helps.

if you want another Icon, just create it and use the above procedures to get to your page you want.

In the Internet Explorer browser, go to Web page you want to link to. Move the mouse to the Address Bar and select the Explorer icon at the front of the URL. Holding down the button, drag the icon to your desktop.

That will create a shortcut item with an IE icon on your desktop. Click on it and your browser will come up and go to that web site.
