How to Prevent the IncrediMail MyStart Page

IncrediMail is a free email client that manages emails and contacts just like any standard email program. It goes the extra mile by providing a slew of enjoyable features, including the ability to skin the application, add backgrounds and emoticons to email messages, and watch 3D animations when you or the program perform certain operations. After you perform a full installation of IncrediMail, Internet Explorer's default home page will change to the IncrediMail MyStart page, which shows IncrediMail updates. You must edit both the IncrediMail options and Internet Explorer options to prevent the MyStart page from ever appearing.

Instructions

    • 1

      Launch Internet Explorer. Type the website address that you want as your home page into the address bar and press "Enter."

      Locate the "Home" icon, which looks like a house, and click the small triangle next to it. Click the "Add or Change Home Page" item. Select the "Use this webpage as your only home page" option and click the "Yes" button to save the new home page.

      Load IncrediMail from the Start menu or desktop and then click on the "Tools" menu. Select "Options" to bring up the Options dialog.

    • 4

      Click the "Security" tab and uncheck the box labeled "Notify me about changes in my home page settings." Unchecking this will prevent any possibilities of the MyStart page coming back. Click on the "OK" button to apply the changes.

Tips & Warnings

  • If the website that you want as your home page is in your Favorites, you can load that site directly from the list by clicking the "Favorites" button and then going directly to Step 2 and onwards.
