Homepage for IE9

I somehow changed my homepage to "about:blank" and would like to have it reflect something other than a white screen. How can I change this?

Note that I don't use IE 9 as a browser... however from memory this should work -

To set the current webpage as the home page

* Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button.
In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.

*Navigate to the webpage you want to set as the home page.

*Click the arrow to the right of the Home button, and then click Add or Change Home Page.

*In the Add or Change Home Page dialog box, do one of the following:

>To make the current webpage your only home page, click Use this webpage as your only home page.

>To start a home page tab set or to add the current webpage to your set of home page tabs, click Add this webpage to your home page tabs.

>To replace your existing home page or home page tab set with the webpages you currently have open, click Use the current tab set as your home page. This option will only be available if you have more than one tab open in Internet Explorer.

*Click Yes to save your changes.

Thanks JMH. You provided me with exactly what I needed. I typically use Firefox, but wanted to see what IE9 had to offer.
