    In order to set the AOL Shield Pro to open a specific web page (or a new tab) on startup, follow these steps:

    1. Click the menu button (three horizontal lines) and then click Settings.

    2. On the Settings page, under the ‘On startup’ section, select one of these 3 options:
    A. Open the New Tab page (a blank tab).
    B. Continue where you left off (AOL Shield Pro will open the tabs you had opened from your last session).
    C. Open a specific page or set of pages.
    After selecting this option, click on ‘Add a new page’, then type your desired homepage (e.g. www.aol.com, mail.aol.com etc.) and click ‘Add’.

    *Changes are saved automatically. To see the results close and re-open AOL Shield Pro.

      I have used settings to set page to appear when I open AOL Shield. Both that page and the aol pro screen come up each time. I do not want to see the aol pro screen every time! How do I eliminate it?
