Open Internet Explorer.

Top right, click tools>internet options
It`s also found in the control panel

change the home page to whatever you want. I use www.google.com


Whenever you download and install things, you have to go slower and read everything and uncheck boxes that will change or add things that you don`t want. Such as changing your homepage to Bing. This is how it happened and now you have learned.

Google Chrome is not a search engine, it is a web browser.
