By default Internet Explorer is set to start from Microsoft's Web page. We recommend that you set Hevanet's Home Page as your starting page. To do so, in the Address field of Internet Explorer replace the text currently there with https://web.hevanet.com/search.html and press Enter. Then click on View, Internet Options. On the General Tab, click on Use Current. The next time you start up Internet Explorer, you will go directly to Hevanet.
