    Morning All,

    I would like to switch to Microsoft Edge from Google Chrome but is it possible to set it so it opens on the selected home page, perhaps BBC News, as I don't want to see adverts, tips & news items when Edge is first opened.

    I'm grateful for any help

    Thank you.

    Hiya, hit ... top right, then settings, then on-startup on left menu.

    The real question is: why would you want to?

    Indeed. I use Chrome and wouldn't touch Edge with a barge pole!

    They're pretty much the same thing now, just another chromium browser with a skin.

    I have always used Chrome, at least for a number of years since moving from Firefox which, I believe, is also pretty good.
    Unless there is some great advantage in moving to Edge, and I'd appreciate any suggestions, I'll stay with Chrome.
