    Do you guys know if theres a shortcut key to set your homepage rather than going in Internet options to reset it. I know theres a shortcut key to bookmark a page but I didn't know if there would be one to set your homepage

    Since it is just an entry in the registry, you could make a reg file to do this.

    Export:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\


    And just keep the section regarding the
    Start Page

    e.g.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "Start Page"="http://www.whateveryouwant.com"
