Changing Your Internet Explorer Homepage on Your Windows RT Surface Tablet

We will show you how to update the settings in Internet Explorer so that you can display your homepage when you open the browser. These instructions are specifically for Internet Explorer on the Surface Tablet that is running Windows RT. Only the Surface 1 and Surface 2 tablets use the Windows RT operating system. Windows RT is a more limited version of Windows.

Step 1: Open Internet Explorer On Your Microsoft Surface Tablet

Go to your desktop and open the Internet Explorer desktop browser.

NOTE The IE desktop browser is different than the IE metro browser. You can tell the difference since the IE desktop browser will look like a browser on any Windows computer. The IE metro browser will look like a browser designed for your tablet or phone.

Step 2: Click on the Gears Icon to See Your Browser Settings

Once your Internet Explorer browser is open, click on the settings icon near the top right of your browser window. The setting icon looks like a gear.
