How to Remove a Blank Homepage

By Nina Nixon

Removing a blank home page can help you access the website you most frequently visit much faster. For instance, to avoid extra clicks in getting to the login page, you can set your Internet browser to land on the site where you normally access your email. Or you can set your homepage to a website that you typically go to several times a day. It's easy to make your Internet browser's first landing a customized connection.
