UK Computing/Providers webpage

Question
Hi.

When I press my providers icon (Orange By EE)to enter the internet, I get their page come up.
Is it possible to bypass their page and enable the Google page to open instead.
Am aware that Google can be made 'My Hompage' via options, but that is only possible after the net has opened and of course, the Orange website page is shown first.

Many thanks. Fonz.

Answer
Heyyyy Fonzie!

Yes, it is, please follow these instructions:

1).  Top right corner of Internet Explorer you should see a Cog (when you move your mouse over it, it says Tools (ALT + X), please click on it (or use shortcut key combination).

2).  From the drop down menu click Internet Options

3).  In the box where it says Home page, delete whatever is there and type in your preferred Home Landing Page, in your case www.google.co.uk

4).  Click Apply then OK.

Every time you open Internet Explorer from now on you will have Google.

Please remember to rate my answer.
