Hi there,

Do you mean when you start internet, google comes up automatically instead of yahoo.. Are you using internet explorer or firefox ?

Okay.

Open Internet Explorer.

Click Tools menu at the top, then select Internet Options

Under General Tab, In Home page field enter :

http://www.yahoo.com/

Click ok. Close Internet Explorer. Restart Internet Explorer. Yahoo should be back

I still cannot get my bookmarks back. It just keeps saying I have to sign in to google for my bookmark!
Expert:  abhi_iitian replied 7 years ago.

okay, to get the bookmarks, you will need to sign in to google using your google account and password.. I think you have a google toolbar installed.. at extreme right of that will be settings, click on that and then click on sign in.

I don't have a google acct or password XXXXX I know of?
Expert:  abhi_iitian replied 7 years ago.

If you don't have google account, you would not have used te google bookmarks feature. Just ignore that messge .

When you click on the Favourites menu at the top, don't you see your bookmarks ?

I don't see a favorites menu at the top. Where is it? This would be so much more efficient if I could talk to someone directly on the phone!
Expert:  abhi_iitian replied 7 years ago.

Sorry we do not provide phone support.

In Internet EXplorer, Right click on any area below the address bar(where you type the site's address), then select menubar.. the bar with File.. Edit.. etc should come back and it will also have a menu named favourites
