do you have sharePoint designer?
You can use it to open the MasterPage and apply it to all your sites.
Location is:-catalogs/masterpage/default.master.  This is the default.master file in the Master Pages gallery of the website.

Make sure you backup the masterpage first.

However; how can I make sure that this is my original home page?  and how can I apply it?  I am very new to SPF2010.

Hi;

subject to my further checking, I found that if I type http://spf2010/default.aspx, I can see my original page but if I just type http://spf2010, it will lead me to http://spf2010/SitePages/Home.aspx.

Where spf2010 is my server name, how can I make it default to  http://spf2010/default.aspx when I type http://spf2010

thanks!
1.Go to SITE ACTIONS>SITE SETTINGS
2.Under -Look and Feel-  select WELCOME PAGE.
3.Browse to the welcome page you want...should be under /default.aspx

Hi;

I cannot find the WELCOME PAGE option in "Look and Feel" section.  I have the following options only.

Title, description, and icon
Quick Launch
Top link bar
Tree view
Site theme
wow its different in SharePoint 2007.

In SharePoint 2010, open http://spf2010/default.aspx in Internet Explorer, click Page on the page header=>Make Home Page.
That should sort you out.
