I'm a new Mac user. When I 1st opened Safari, I changed the home page and therefore the top sites. I want to go back to the default home page/top sites that was set at the factory. It showed a lot of news sources, CNN, etc that my husband wants to see, and I can't figure how to get back to it. Does anyone know the default?

The home page is:

But if you want to reset the top sites, Click on the Safari menu, Reset Safari and uncheck all but "Reset Top Sites" and click the Reset button.

The reset didn't go back for me. I think I need to add the "news" choice back to the bookmark bar – Jody M Oct 17 '09 at 19:52

Preferences -> General -> There you can choose the default home page and choose with what page does a new tab or a new window opens i.e. : Top Sites.

Top Sites is designed to change as you use the internet — it shows your most-visited websites, and it will constantly change.

You can find the stock Apple sites in your bookmarks.

Clear your history using Safari -> Reset Safari (Check clear history) and then Quit Safari (apple key + Q) simply closing the windows does not quit Safari.

Launch Finder and goto: your-home-folder > Library > Safari and delete TopSites.plist

This will reset the Top Sites with the defaults. Restart Safari.
