how to stop your homepage from being changed

Recommended Posts

sorry if this has been posted before but a search didnt find anything,


anyway, ive noticed several different programs that will stop your homepage from being changed, this however seems like a lot of fuss for a simple thing.


to keep your homepage to stay the same all you need to do is change the target of your internet browser shortcut.

right click on the shortcut on your desktop or in the start menu and click properties, there will be a box labelled "target" which will have the value:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"


by simply adding the web address of your homepage to the end of this it will override your homepage preferences in the internet options tab.

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" www.google.com



this is sometimes a bit tricky for the shortcut pinned to the start menu but if you play around with it for a few minutes then its not a problem.
