How to Change Edge Homepage

Save home page on Edge

What happens when you click the Home icon on Microsoft Edge? Does it open a new tab or a specific website? Let me show you how to enable the Home button and set up a home page.

Enabling the Home Button on Edge

By default, Microsoft Edge does not show a Home button on the address bar. Let us first enable the Home button.

  1. Click the three-dot settings menu in the top-right corner.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. From the left pane, select Start, home, and new tabs.
  4. In the Home button section, switch on the Show home button on the toolbar toggle.

You should now see the Home icon on your Edge toolbar, right next to the Reload button.

Now that you have the Home icon, let me show you how to set up a home page.

Setting Up Home Page in Edge

What happens when you click the Home icon? By default, it is set to open your new tab page.

You can change this.

For example, I want to open my to-do list app when I click the Home icon. You can set it to open any website of your choice. Here is how:

  1. Click the three-dot settings menu in the top-right corner.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. From the left pane, select Start, home, and new tabs.
  4. In the Home button section, enter your home page address in the Enter URL field.
  5. Click Save.
