  4. @Noman – You mean how to change the URL for the “Use Default” button?
    That can be done through the Windows registry, locate the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN
    In here you’ll find an entry named “Default_Page_URL”, which points to the microsoft site. They use a parameter in the URL to localize the MSN site for you.
    If you change this value, you can change the default home page.
    Hope this is what you were looking for.
