Windows 7: My MSN home page gone

My MSN home page gone

Last night I and noticed MS made a change to the home page again. Gone is the "friendly" look of the original page. Internet Options still shows "http//my.msn.com/". but it's a totally different 'mish-mash' of articles. Guess we're stuck with this last creation - or change to another home page.

Hi ThrashZone, "googled" home pages and decided on this one "BestHomePageEver". Check it out, if you haven't. It's clean and easily seems to access what I want. No more changes from MS!

I think the best homepage ever is the one you create yourself with exactly what you want in it

I use a local HTML file I created. Open the file in your browser and set current page as home page. If you want an example let me know. Not necessary to know HTML, just look at the existing links and change/delete/copy lines.

Ok, so here's an example with 4 columns. Besides the headings I've used you only need to change/add the lines that start with <a href=
Example: <a href="https://www.google.se">Google</a><P>
I think you get the picture, if not just ask.

Save this in a new file as type .html and then open it with your browser.
Code:
<html>
