How to Set a Home Page on Your Samsung Galaxy Tablet’s Internet App

By Dan Gookin

The home page is the first page you see when you start the Internet app on your Samsung Galaxy tablet, and it’s the first page that’s loaded when you fire up a new tab. To set a home page, heed these directions:

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

  2. Touch the Menu button.

  3. Choose Settings.

    The Settings screen appears.

  4. Choose Set Home Page.

    If you don’t see the Set Home Page item on the left side of the screen, choose General, and then choose Set Home Page.

  5. Choose the Current Page item.

The home page is set.

Not all home pages are created equally. For example, the tablet’s home page is your cellular provider’s page, it may take forever to load. Remember: You don’t have to use your cellular provider’s home page or the Samsung home page.

If you want your home page to be blank (not set to any particular web page), choose Blank Page in Step 5. If that option isn’t available, choose Other, and then type about:blank in the box. Touch the OK button to set the page, and then touch the Done button at the top-right corner of the screen.

You may prefer a blank home page because it’s the fastest web page to load. It’s also the web page with the most accurate information.
