We had a number of questions upfront. The one I remember is setting your start page in your browser. The person having the question was using Firefox.
Setting HomeWhen you open a browser, the first website you see appears in the first tab (left tab). This is your Home page. Had you set it to show more than one website, the others will be in the additional tabs to the right. When you click to open an additional tab, that tab will open to the website you assigned which could be a repeat of the Home page or perhaps a blank page.
Let’s see how to do that in Firefox.
Click the menu button in the upper right corner (the three lines)
Select Options and then Home
Set the Home page to whatever site you want to see when you start up Firefox. My choice is www.google.com, yours might be www.msn.com or something else.
Set New tabs to the page you would like it to open, either same as Home or a Blank Page
When you have set up your preferences, close Firefox and reopen it to see the results.
What about Brave?
Menu button > Settings > scroll to bottom
Make your choice, then scroll back to the top
In the Appearance section, set the New Tab page
In Google Chrome, click menu (three dots) > Settings
Scroll down to locate the On startup and Appearance sections and make your choices…
In Edge, click menu (three dots) > Settings
Scroll down to Customize and make your choices.
We talked last week about various ways to get Kodi and other stations at home. We talked about cutting the cable. Well, I ordered a TV Box that says it will give us everything…
We opened the box and unpacked it. It contained the TV Box, an HDMI cable, a power pack, and a remote. There were NO batteries for the remote!
There were many many TV Boxes to choose from. I picked this one because it had the most memory, for the price range I was looking at--around $25. And I liked the clock…
We set it up using a computer monitor that had HDMI inputs. When we turned it on an easy to follow screen displayed. You would plug it into one of your TV’s HDMI inputs.
We went to the Settings selection and set up the WiFi using the club’s information. As you can see there are many selections just like on an Android cell phone or tablet. You can install Apps from the Google Play Store and access the Internet to locate others.
This box came with a version of Kodi and we scrolled through the various menu items there. However, there would be additional work to make Kodi fully operational by applying additional software. We located a number of YouTube videos to learn more about Kodi and how to add the additional software that determines the look and feel and what you are able to access--movies, sports, games, etc.
You can install Kodi on your PC, cell phone, or tablet as well as on your streaming devices such as this TV Box and an Amazon Firestick.
YouTube has many videos so select the one that applies to the device you are installing it on.
We watched a number of short videos on Youtube about Kodi. This video shows how to install Movies and TV Shows on Kodi
