    Hi,
    I hope someone can help me.
    When I open Google on my laptop two search engines come up every time, even when I use my Chromebook.
    How can I prevent the tab with Yahoo coming up?

    Thanks in advance, Michael googleyahoo.jpg

    I assume you're using the Chrome browser. I don't use that but browsers usually have options in the Settings which control which pages are opened when the browser starts.

    Haven't used a computer or laptop for years so it's probably different now but you used to click on the line its on in a place where there is nothing and options come up what you can have in the start menu.

    Hi gjh,
    just figured it out - I went into Settings - Manage Search Engines and deleted the Yahoo option!
    It wasn't ticked as a browser option but was still coming up.
