Welcome to JustAnswer.

What homepage did you want instead of MSN please?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
none
Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.

OK; please click the wrench icon in the top-right corner and select Options. Under Basics, next to Home page, click "Use the New Tab page" then X out.

The next time you open up Google Chrome, no home page will be displayed - thanks.

Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.

It's not on a page - it's part of your web browser:

I see no wrench in my web browser top right hand corner

Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.

internet explororer but not 8.0
Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.
OK; Internet Explorer requires that you have a default page that comes up when you first open the web browser.

Would you like www.google.com as your home page?

what I would like is to access google chrome. can I accomplish this ASAP

I mostly use AOL

At one point I had google chrome on my desk top I hit the icon and lo and behold google chrome came up . No MSN no Google.com home page just google chrome.

What happened

Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.
- it sounds like Internet Explorer somehow took over again... we can switch it back to Google Chrome, though.

Go to Start menu > Control Panel > Set Program Access Defaults...

Pick Custom

Click the circle next to "Google Chrome" and then click OK.


Next, please go to Start menu > All Programs > Google Chrome, and then click the wrench in the top-right corner and select options then at the end of the Basics list, click Make Google Chrome my default browser. Thanks.

Got as far as clcking ok next to google chrome.In set program access defaults...custom

When I went to start menu and went to all programs and then google chrome MSN came on the screen with no wrench in sight.

Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.
I'm not understanding. You picked Google Chrome yet another web browser came up? That's literally impossible.

FS
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Now I am having problems accessing Set program access and defaults but when I rechecked the page after hitting the prompt after custom it reverted out of Google chrome.

This whole scenreio is more problems then it is worth

Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.
Are you not able to access Google Chrome at all right now?

If not, please go to Start menu > Run... (or press windows key + R)

and type

CHROME

then click OK

Does it then come up?

FS
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

START-RUN-CHROME-OK.

MSN COMES UP

Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.
OK, so you're in Google Chrome now, but the MSN homepage is showing? Please confirm the web browser - http://www.supportdetails.com/

I HIT INTERENT EXPLORER PROMPT.

Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.
I'm not understanding. When you type CHROME and click OK, chrome.exe is started. So you don't see Google Chrome? No wrench in the top-right corner?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

MSN HOME PAGE COMES UP. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE WE CAN DO. i STILL CAN NOT ACCESS SET PROGRAM ACCESS AND DEFAULTS THAT US UNDER CONTROL PANEL PROMPT.

Expert:  Frederick S. replied 5 years ago.
What happens when you try to access Set Program Access and Defaults? If you instead pick Add/Remove Programs, then select Set Program Access/defaults on the left side, does it come up then?
