    Default S5 internet home page issue

    more of just an annoyance. so whenever I tap the internet button,, (not chrome) it goes to the quick access page with google, yelp, acuweather etc. 8 little boxes. The issue is I have the homepage set to just plain ol google. it never defaults to just google. I chose that as my homepage so why does the quick access page always come up first? just a pain to open internet.. then have to tap google or the home screen button and then tap the google search bar to enter my query. I just want it to default open to google. any ideas?

    Mine is set the same way, and does the same thing. Frustrating.

    Also, now that Contact addresses are split into multiple fields, how do you "copy" an entire address so you can "paste" it into something else?

    I want 4.3 back!

    You can add Web sites to the quick access. When you are on the Web page, choose settings and add from there.

    Not sure how to make something you're home page to default there.

    If you want just the Google home screen, long press on the home button. At least mine is set up that way. I just tried and it even worked while I was in this forum.

    Yeah I have always wanted to know how to do that. I have Google set as my home page, but my browser opens up to whatever page I was on last, so I always back out to Google so it will be there the next time I tap internet. I wish when I tapped internet it would just take me to my damn home page. That is annoying and has annoyed me on every internet phone I've ever had.

    Another thought. Do you have a home page with the Google search bar on it? If you're using a different home screen, like Nova Launcher, can you add the widget?

    I'm referring to the "ok Google" widget.

    What I did to fix the problem was,
    1 push the internet button, this goes to the quick access page.
    2 push the tabs button top right, the tabs you have open will be displayed.
    3 click the ( - ) next to the quick access tab to close it.
    4 exit out of the internet app back to the home screen.
    5 Watch as the magic happens next time you press the internet button. It will go to what ever you have set as your homepage.
    Your welcome

    Just go to your internet settings and select "Set Homepage" select a different homepage (just reenter google even) and it will say that it will open your homepage rather than quick access tabs when you start up. Worked for me

    I'm having the same problem, however it only began this evening. Internet Explorer has always opened on the homepage I set for it (att.net). Now it opens on Quick Access. I have tried all the solutions mentioned: closing open tabs; resetting the Homepage in settings; clearing history. No luck. In fact, the homepage is still set to att.net, and if I hit the Home button, IE goes to att.net, but the back button is highlighted and it goes back to Quick Access! Very annoying. Why would this suddenly occur, and how do I fix it?

    Go to google or whatever site you're wanting to use as a start page and add a shortcut to it on your home screen...

    That's not the Google home page, that's the Google now page, big difference!

    To change internet homepage, make sure to close all web browsers. Go to your phone settings and click on the "internet," located on the very bottom. Hit the "Set homepage," hit "Other" and type the website you want to be your home page. Hit "Done." Hope that helps.
