    Do you mean that when you click on a blue lettered link that it goes to the wrong html?

The only thing I know that you can do to Chrome, which is a small but efficient web browsing program, is to uninstall it and reinstall the latest version. If it still does this, maybe test another browser like ie9 or Apple's Safari to see if the problem can be duplicated there.

Make Google news my home page


Hi
Load Google Chrome. On the right side of the address bar is an icon consisting of 3 horiz bars. Click on this and then click on settings. A webpage will open. Under the On Start-up heading, click a dot into "open a specific page" and click on "set page". In the box which comes up type the address of the page you want. In your case I think it is
https://news.google.co.uk/nwshp?hl=en&ei=0iI8VIyzAcnnaLLggkA&ved=0CAoQqS4oCA
Having done that delete any other address that may be shown and close the settings page. Restart Chrome and it should open to Goggle News. Other browsers will have different ways to set the Home Page, but the above link will take you to Google News no matter which browser you use
Cheers

I want to make google my home page


It depends on what browser you are using, but it is pretty much the same process for all browsers for setting your home page.
I will give example using the Firefox browser.
1. Go to the Google page by typing www.google.com in the address window then press enter. - You should see the google website page displayed.
2. Double click on the address window to highlight the address then right-click with the cursor still on the highlighted address and select "copy" from the dropdown menu.
3. From you web browser's menu select "Preferences" - in Firefox click on "Edit" then "Preferences" in the drop-down menu.
4. The preferences window should appear opened to the "General" tab. If another tab is opened then click on the "General" tab.
5. You will see "When Firefox starts: Show my homepage" - If "Show my homepage" is not showing then you can select it by clicking on whatever is in the window currently and choose it from the dropdown menu.
5. Next - put the mouse cursor in the "Home Page:" window - then right-click and select "Paste" to past in the "Google" site address that you copied from the address window in step 2. above. Alternately, instead of copying the Google website address into this window you could simply type in "www.google.com" and it should work.
6. Final step in setting your preferences - below the window that you just filled in step 5. is a button/sign that says "Use Current Pages". Right-click on this button/sign.
7. Close the preferences window. Next time you startup your browser the google website should appear as your home page.

Good Luck,

I installed babylon windows internet explorer and it substitute google windows internet explorer and I want to get it back as homepage please tell me how


Hi. This is fairly simple to fix.
First open firefox, from the way you describe it , then it opens to google.
thats ok.
Now go to the babylon website.
Next, click you tools tab, and then select options.
On the tab that says general is the place to make changes to your home page.
Right click on your address bar where you have babylon web address, and click copy, or copy link location, whichever it offers
Next delete the google address in the home page block, and paste the babylon one into it.
Then click ok.
Close your browser, wait about 15 seconds, this allows the system to recognize the changes, and then open firefox again.
Now you should have babylon as your home page instead of google.

Dell v14 msn homepage stopped working and not sure why msn link broken


I guess you lost your Home Page link to MSN, right? If so, use your browser--probably MS Internet Explorer--to go to www.my.msn.com and sign in.

From the MS IE top menu bar, select Tools, then Internet Options. In the General tab you will see Home Page on top and your home page address should be in the Address line. Click Use Current.

Your home page should be restored.
