Whenever you launch your default web browser, it opens up a new window with a default homepage or a start page. On start, the popular browsers set quick links, search bars, news stories, recently visited sites, a popular search engine like Bing.com or Google and sometimes advertisement as the homepage.

This is a useful feature and convenient for users. Still, there might be users who want to set their favorite web pages as a homepage.  The good thing is that users can set a homepage of their choice, with the same functionality that is available in all the modern browsers.
