How to Set Up Comcast As My Homepage
By Aaron Parson
Comcast offers a portal on its website, providing users with news, weather and a search bar. For subscribers to Comcast services, the site also features the ability to check email and voicemail, and even watch some TV shows. If you use the features on Comcast's site frequently, setting it as your homepage allows easy access, automatically loading the page each time you start your Web browser. The process varies slightly depending on your Web browser, but only takes moments to perform.
