How to Make Road Runner My Home Page

Changing your default home page to the official website of Time Warner Cable -- the parent company of the discontinued Road Runner High Speed Online brand -- gives you convenient access to your webmail and account management interface every time you launch your browser. Select an alternate home page in one of the three major browsers under Windows 7 and 8 -- Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer -- by editing the browser's options.

Mozilla Firefox

Change Firefox's default home page by visiting the Time Warner Cable website in a new tab and dragging that tab to the Home icon in your toolbar. Click Yes to confirm your new home page.

While Firefox automatically loads the set home page when you launch the browser, you can also manually access it by clicking the Home icon.

Google Chrome

Chrome lets you set both a custom startup page and a home page. While the startup page is the page Chrome automatically displays upon launching the browser, the home page is the one that opens when you click the Home icon in your toolbar.

Setting the Startup Page

Step

Open the Chrome menu and select Options. In the section where you choose what the browser does On Startup, select Open a Specific Page or Set of Pages and click Set Pages.
