We all know (hopefully) that on a WM Pro device you can set the Internet Explorer homepage to anything you want. But what many don't remember was Microsoft actually made a useful homepage that on a lot of devices is disabled. Reason? Many carriers (cough, Sprint) set their "portal" as the default Home Page. Blech.

Today, we'll take it back.

Why you ask? This makes PIE on WM6.x more like WM Standard. You get a search bar, plus a quick drop down list to your favorites and history. At least for myself, I tend to find this very useful.

So here's how to do it:

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • In the address bar, type in: file://\windows\default_0409.htm
  • Menu --> Tools --> Options
  • Home page --> "Use Current"
