I have my default web page as google. However the URL for google is https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl
This presents an inconvenience for me because of the https portion of the URL. Usually If I wish to go to an alternate website, I can just type in the website name right after the http// portion of the URL, and not have to type in the http portion of the URL.
However because googles URL is https://, I have to remember to remove the "s" from the https. Is their a way around this? On my PC can I just have the URL display as http://www.google.com instead of https://www.google.com

Also how do I assign points for my question? Their use to be a slider at the bottom of my page allowing me to assign points to questions, and I can't find it, so consequently it is defaulting to 500 points?

Finally I did not see a section for web browsers? I searched for Internet explorer and Firefox, and nothing came up. I am using Internet explorer.

All technical questions are now 500 points.  In all modern web browsers, you can delete the current address and type in the name of a web site without 'http' and they will bring it up.

To disable it perform a search then click options in the top right hand corner and the unselect secure connections.
