I’ve lived in the Randle area for the past 20 years, moving here from Kent in 1999 to get out of the city life and never looked back. I have three children, my oldest daughter lives in Seattle and the younger daughter and son live in Randle. I’m blessed with three beautiful grandkids.

Setting your Browser Homepage
When the new Microsoft Edge automatically installed recently, some of you have told me that your homepage on your browser was replaced by the Microsoft homepage. Here is how to set your homepage on both Edge and Chrome.
For the newest version of Microsoft Edge, click on the three horizontal dots in the top right corner of your browser window. Towards the bottom of the list, click on Settings. You’ll see your profile page. If you remember last week, this is where we found the passwords that were saved by your browser. On the left of the screen you will see a list of Settings. Select “On startup” from the list. This is where you set what happens when your browser opens. Select the circle next to “Open a specific page or pages”. To the right, select “Add a new page”. Type in the address of the web site that you want to be your home page. For example: www.highwayshopper.com. Click the ADD button. If you want multiple tabs to always open when you start edge, you can add another page by selecting “Add a new page” again. When you close your browser and open it back up again, the pages you selected will be opened automatically.
Setting your home page in Chrome is similar. Select the three vertical dots in the top right corner of your browser window. Select “Settings” and choose “On startup”. Select “Open a specific page or set of pages”. Choose “Add a new page”, type in your web page address and click ADD. Chrome also offers an option to “Use current pages”. If you make this choice, all the web pages that are currently open on your browser tabs will be added to your startup list.
These startup pages can be changed anytime, by repeating this process.
Have a good week,Kathie Pearce
