    The application is a portable application thus no need to uninstall. Just delete the applications folder to remove it. To set your homepage to something other than Homepage Maker, you will need to open Internet Options and change your Homepage from there.


    While on this subject is there a problem that you are having is why you are wanting to remove it, looking for more features? All Feedback is appreciated to help better any and all of my applications

    Hi.
    I am having problems with IE after using your application. I think it doesn't work with IE8 at all.
    First not all features in the application GUI are available to me. Some are grayed out.
    The version of IE I am using is 8. (can't use nine since installing that makes other apps fail)
    After making changes with HomePage Maker my IE won't load normally anymore.
    I get error reports that certain files can't be loaded from the HomePage Maker folder.
    Next to that IE won't open up completely anymore.
    Also I can't open up Extra>Internet Options anymore.
    Any help for me ?

    The application itself does not touch any settings in IE except changing the Homepage. There should be no issue creating a homepage for IE8. Did you move the program and its contents after setting the homepage? The registry entry for the Start Page is based on the location of the application once you have created the homepage and set it. If you move the folder or any of its contents afterwards you will receive errors as IE looks to the Registry Entry for homepage location.


    To change the settings back manually if you are having trouble switching it back:

    Make sure IE is not open then
    Goto Start Menu\Run\Regedit and go to the following location:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main and on the right scroll down and locate the value Start Page
    Double click this and change the address to the homepage of your choice
    Example: http://www. google.com Make sure to remove space in between www. g
    Close Regedit and open IE and see if this resolved your issue

    Default HomePage Maker 1.0 - compatible with Chrome 14.x?

    Just wonder if this one will work with newer versions of browsers, especially for Chrome?

    After I finish a project I am currently working on, Homepage will recieve a HUGE update that I have been tossing around in my head and I think users will be really pleased with.
    Then I'll wait patiently
