Hey Guys,

I am very confused about Microsoft Edge in the Windows 10 build I have (1511.) How do I change my Home Page to Google and make it stick? The instructions that I found from Microsoft say:

1.) Select More on the Address Bar (...)
2.) Than Settings
3.) Turn on Show the Home Button
4.) Enter the URL of your Home Page and click Save.

I am doing that, but it keeps going back to Bing. I also don't understand for opening pages it says, "Open a page or a range of pages." This is awful!

I can't comment on the Microsoft Edge browser that comes as part of Windows 10 because I've never used it.

Have you considered using the Internet Explorer 11 browser that also comes as part of Windows 10?

The above link will do the trick.
BUT, you will need to define your custom page, and make sure that the "About Start" is deleted.
Edge will now start up at the Home page.

Oh man!

I figured it out on my own, but I don't want to reproduce the steps on the forum yet, because it's not an easy task! Maybe someone else can? There's a lot of work to get to settings in Edge compared to the simplicity of other browsers. Everything is different in Settings and you can't just take what you have learned for years in IE, or Firefox (my browser of choice) or Chrome. Your Home Page and Start Page can be different? That threw me for a loop!

I like the speed of Edge and extensions are coming out in the Windows 10 Anniversary update, but it is certainly not user-friendly.
