How to Make CNN the Home Page in Internet Explorer

By Kenneth Coppens

The homepage is the website that automatically comes up when Internet Explorer is opened. This can be set to any page you want. If you are somebody who likes to keep up on world news, then CNN would be a good website to use as your homepage.

Step 1

Open Internet Explorer. This can be done by double clicking the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop or by looking in the "Start" menu in the lower left-hand corner of the screen.

Step 2

Go to the top of the window and click on the "Tools" menu.

Step 3

Scroll to "Internet Options" and click on it. Another window will open that gives you the option of changing your homepage. If you do not see that option, make sure the tab that says "General" has been chosen.

Step 4

Type in www.CNN.com, click "OK" and your homepage has been set to CNN. If you prefer a certain portion of the CNN website over another portion, enter the exact URL. For example, some people prefer to view the CNN sports homepage. That exact URL is http://edition.cnn.com/SPORT.
