So I have a project that involves me resetting the homepage of about ~70 computers that are in a test group to a new home page. In the past I've done this via registry, but this time I have to target all browsers rather than just one. I've been Googling, but it seems like Firefox might not be able to do this easily...

Is there some program / setting that I could save / run once per computer to reset the home-page on the major browsers mentioned above?

i think you must ask this in… – poqdavid Jun 14 '13 at 15:17
Maybe, but this is really more of a sysadmin-style question. When I wanted to disable zoom via registry I was point here and got: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ZOOM] "ZoomDisabled"=dword:00000001 – A_Elric Jun 14 '13 at 15:19
Well if i want to do something like this i will code something my self using C# you can go download Visual Studio Express Edition – poqdavid Jun 14 '13 at 15:23
I could probably whip something up in java or C++ to handle the task, but I feel like that would be over-engineering the issue. – A_Elric Jun 14 '13 at 15:24
Well in my idea that will be the best way :) – poqdavid Jun 14 '13 at 15:27

Are you going to need to do this more than once?

If so, I would change them (individually this time) to a page you create which redirects to the homepage you want. Then any future changes would just take editing the address on your pass-through page.
