about:blank is just the default page on web browsers. If you don't like it, you can change the homepage.  :thumbup2:

As gigapouch has said, changing your start page is easy, whichever browser you are using.


Start by opening your browser and going to whichever page you want to use for your home page - a lot of people use their e-mail log-in page but the choice is yours. Then look at the right hand top corner of the browser screen. In IE you will see a cog wheel shaped symbol, in Firefox and Chrome, and I think Safari, you will see a button with three horizontal bars. Click on this.


In IE you will see a menu containing 'Internet options', open this and click 'Use current' as my home page. In Firefox you will see 'Options', click on this and do the same. In Chrome you will see 'Settings'. The second option down is 'On start up'. Here you will see three options, click the third one 'Open a specific page' and in the box that appears click 'Use current'. Safari has very similar options but since I don't have it installed at the moment I can't be as specific.
