Customize your browser

Make your browser work for you (instead of the other way around) by having it open your regular “go-to” pages automatically.  This example is for Internet Explorer, and can easily be applied to Chrome, Firefox, Safari and other browsers.

Start by going to the gear icon and from the drop down, select Internet Options :1

On the resulting page, either enter (include http:// before the www…) the address of the websites you want opened by default, or go back and open the ones you use most and return here and select “use current.”  This example will open a Google page and my own website everytime I launch IE.  Don’t forget to click the Apply buttom at the bottom.  2

Note: Opening more than 3 or 4 tabs concurrently may slow down your PC’s responsiveness.
