Experts,

I have Windows 8 with IE 11.  Can someone tell me how to  edit where my browser goes when I click on "Explorer".

I would like it to go to "Google".

Click on the wheel (menu - next to the home and star), go to Internet Options.

There, on Home Page box, write www.google.com and press OK.

Hello,  Are you referring to the default home page in Internet Explorer?  If so, here is one way you can achieve what you want.

In Internet Explorer, go ahead and go to www.google.com

Then go to Tools > Internet Options

Then click on the "Use current" button.  Then click "OK".
