How to Change the Homepage in Microsoft Edge

The homepage in Microsoft Edge is the page that loads when you start the browser. By default, the Edge browser’s homepage is set to open the Microsoft Start page. If you don’t like it, you can change the homepage in Microsoft Edge with just a few clicks. For example, you can set your favorite website, search engine, or email as the default homepage. That way, you don’t have to manually type the web address after opening the Edge browser. In this guide, I will show you the step-by-step process of changing the homepage in Edge. Let’s get started.

  6. Click the Add a new page button.

A quick tip: You can add multiple URLs by clicking the Add a new page button. Doing so will open those web pages in separate tabs when you open the Edge browser.
