  1. 1. What are startpages?
  2. Startpages (in the context of this thread) are locally hosted webpages (as in, the files are on your computer - not a server somewhere) that serve as the homepage or new tab page for a browser. They generally contain some number of links to frequently visited sites as the main element; search bars, clocks, calendars and other embedded items are usually added as secondary elements.

  4. 2. Why/how should I use a startpage?
  5. As part of a cohesive visual theme for your computer. As a jumping off point for opening your browser. As a learning experience in web design. As an art project. As a reminder or organiser.
  6. Or just as something fun to tinker with.

  8. 3. How do I get started?
  9. First of all you'll need a startpage to use. You can either download one someone else has made (scroll down for a list of startpage repositories) or make your own with standard web design tools. Don't know how to get into web design? Start with these courses!

  14. Once you have the startpage downloaded, you just need to navigate to the main HTML file in your browser. Generally this will be in the form of a URI like "file:///c:/homepage/start.html", but you can also just drag the HTML file into your browser to open it. You can bookmark the page and visit it when you want, or set it as your homepage/new tab page in your browser's settings.
