How do I change the default page that opens when I tap the Internet Icon?

When I tap the Internet Icon it opens a yahoo search page.  If you type a specific IP address it does a search instead of going to the address.

 

But if I open Chrome and type the address it goes directly where I want to go.  So the "Internet Icon" on my phone (Galaxy S4 Active" is useless to me. I would rather it open Chrome or a standard browser.

Hello, DannyC01!

 

Thanks for posting. You should be able to tap and hold the internet icon to move it elsewhere. Once you've done that, you can tap and hold the Chrome icon and drag it to where the internet icon used to be.

 

I don't have the S4 Active, but I did try it on my Note II. Assuming the two aren't terribly different, the method above should work for you.

 

Let me know if that works for you!
