Open Multiple Home Pages with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, OR Internet Explorer – Video Tip

Now that Internet Explorer has caught up (sort of) with modern browsers, I wanted to point out yet another function of tabbed browsing (click here for the popular and informative tabbed browsing tip ). If you like to check multiple sites every day or maybe use your browsing sessions for research, let your browser do some of the work for you by opening multiple pages at the same time.

Mozilla Firefox

  1. Open the first page you would like to see every time you start Firefox
  2. Click File –> New –> Tab (or Ctrl + T) to open a new tab
  3. Open the next page you want to see every time you start Firefox
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for as many pages as you want to open automatically
  5. Click Tools –> Options from the menus
  6. Click the General tab at the top of the options screen
  7. Click Use Current Pages button in the Startup section
  8. Click the OK button at the bottom of the screen

Google Chrome

  1. Open the first page you would like to see every time you start Chrome
  2. Click the new Tab button  (or Ctrl + T) to open a new tab
  3. Open the next page you want to see every time you start Chrome
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for as many pages as you want to open automatically
  5. Click the Menu button from the upper right (3 horizontal bars)
  6. Click Settings
  7. Click Set Pages in the “On Startup” section
  8. Click Use Current Pages
  9. Click OK

Internet Explorer

  1. Open the first page you would like to see every time you start Internet Explorer
  2. Click File –> New –> Tab (or Ctrl + T) to open a new tab, or click the new tab button next to the current tab
  3. Open the next page you want to see every time you start up Internet Explorer
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for as many pages as you want to open automatically
  5. Click Tools –> Internet Options from the menus
  6. Click “Current” button in the Home page section
  7. Click the OK button at the bottom of the screen

OR after opening the tabs you want to set as your home pages:

  1. Click the little arrow next to the “Home” icon on the toolbar
  2. Click Add or Change home page
  3. Click use current tab set as your home page
  4. Click OK

Now when you start your browser, instead of being limited to just one page opening, you can get many. Watch the video below for further instruction and demonstration.
