- From the drop-down menu, click the “Internet Options”

- Select “OK” to keep the updates saved. (This ensures the homepage is set. Whenever the browser opens, Yahoo pages will load subsequently)
For Firefox Users

- The Firefox settings will display
- Select the “Options” option (this will take you to another tab)
- On this page, users will see a “Homepage” field, which must be provided with the particular Yahoo page. This would take the command and load the pages already provided. (The pages are – yahoo.com for Yahoo Search, news.yahoo.com for Yahoo News, shopping.yahoo.com for Yahoo shopping and mail.yahoo.com for Yahoo Mail)
