not possible. browsers these days do not allow auto setting of home page

best thing to do is write a page to tell users how to do this according to the browser they are using

Seconded.  Nobody wants that, which is why all the browser developers have changed that.

Even better and more plain than QuinnDex's suggestion - make a page people WANT as their homepage.

The answer to your question is:

You cannot do this.  Browsers have it specifically disabled.  I am sorry if you do not like this answer, but it is correct.
