Droid Bionic: Set Home Page and Text Size

More options and settings and controls exist for the Browser app than for just about every other app on the Droid Bionic. It’s complex. The home page is the first page you see when you start the Browser app, and it's the first page that’s loaded when you fire up a new window. To set your home page, follow these directions in the Browser app:

  1. Browse to the page you want to set as the home page.

  2. Press the Menu soft button.

  3. Choose More and then Settings.

    A massive list of options and settings appears.

  4. Choose Set Home Page.

  5. Touch the Use Current Page button.

    Because you followed Step 1, you don’t need to type the web page’s address.

  6. Touch OK.

    The home page is set.

Unless you’ve already set a new home page, the Droid Bionic comes configured with the Google Mobile search page as your home page.

If you want your home page to be blank (not set to any particular web page), set the name of the home page (in Step 5) to about:blank. That’s the word about, a colon, and then the word blank, with no period at the end and no spaces in the middle. Some people prefer a blank home page because it’s the fastest web page to load.

You can do a few things to improve the way the web looks on your phone. First and foremost, don’t forget that you can orient the phone horizontally to see the wide view on any web page.

From the Settings screen, you can also adjust the text size used to display a web page:

  1. Press the Menu soft button.

  2. Choose More and then Settings.

  3. Choose Text Size.

  4. Select a better size from the menu.

    For example, try Large or Huge.

  5. Press the Back soft button to return to the web.
