Help! I am confused by this home page stuff. When I turn on my
PC, it ends up on the DeskTop. From there I can go anywhere I
want to go. Does that mean that DeskTop is my HomePage?
Please let me know, and if DeskTop is not my Homey, then please
tell me how to find out what Is. I am using win10, jaws 20ish and
have my PC set to look like Win7.
Many thanks for your patience and help,

It seemed to be the predominate preference, for years, to have a
search engine as a home page, at least prior to the introduction
of the omnibox. Now it's far less "universal" than it used to
There is no right or wrong home page. Whatever the user prefers
is settable, and resettable at will.
I used to use my preferred search engine as my home page, but now
I don't ever even use a home page, period. Between the advent of
the omnibox for entering a web address or my search, and that all
browsers can be set to reopen "where you left off" (which I always
do), if I have to exit my browser for any reason "my browsing
world" reopens exactly as I left it when I next start up again.
And all of these things are user preferences, too.
The ability to configure things as you prefer them, as far as web
browsers go, and even the Windows environment goes, really has
never been easier. It has, however, been more comprehensive for a
number of seldom-changed settings in Windows which are no longer
presented to the end user.
