HOW TO CHANGE YOUR BROWSER HOMEPAGE SETTINGS (content://com.android.browser.home/)? 

In this age of speed, people like to do everything fast and without disruption. Let’s imagine that you buy a phone from Samsung or Xiaomi with good specifications and excellent build. But when you open the browser app on the phone, it takes you to a default homepage with the company brand all over it. You get confused and have to choose to go to Google search, and to do this, you either type the address or select a tile present on the default homepage.

This would make anyone a little uncomfortable as you have to do those extra steps again and again. For this reason, people usually hate the default home screen and the browser.

For this, we have content://com.android.browser.home/        

What is content://com.android.browser.home/?

Most people do not know how to change the default homepage to another search engine’s homepage like google or yahoo, depending on their preferences. You can even enter a certain website if you would like to visit it whenever you open the browser. To do this we have a setting called content://com.android.browser.home/. By changing this setting, you can have any website as the homepage for your browser.

But, We have other Super Easy methods to change our Browser’s Homepage, Check it out now!

Steps to change the default homepage

Step 1: Open the browser –

Open the default browser on your phone. Each phone comes with its default browser. It may be labelled as ‘Internet‘ or ‘Browser.’ 

Step 2: Open the menu –

In the browser, you have a menu option in the top right or bottom right of the screen, depending on your phone. Open the menu.

Step 3: Tap settings –

Step 4: Tap General

In some phones, there is a separate ‘general‘ option. Those who don’t have this can go to the next step.

Step 5: Select Set home page

It shows a box to enter the site, which appears when you open the browser. Enter the correct ‘address link you want to act as a home screen. If you don’t enter the correct link, it won’t open.

Step 6: Tap ok to save it

After this, the home page is set, but it only works after you restart the browser.

If we take a Samsung mobile or a Xiaomi mobile, they come with their default browser. You have to be aware that it is not compulsory to use the default browser, which the manufacturer gives us.

Conclusion –

The bottom line is whatever phone you end up buying with; do not think that you are limited to use the default homepage of the browser or the default browser that they provided. You have a range of apps that are free to use, so take your time and choose your browser that meets your needs.

You can go all out with personalization and root your phone to add a custom ROM, but that may void your warranty. So root your phone only if you understand the consequences.
