Create Your Own Personal My Yahoo!

With everything Yahoo! has to offer, it’s not surprising that many users use
Yahoo! as their start page for all their Web travels. While the normal Yahoo!
home page is an okay start page, it’s rather generic. Wouldn’t it be better to create your own personal version of Yahoo!, comprised of those services that you use most every day?

Well, Yahoo! makes it easy to create your own personal Yahoo!. It’s called MyYahoo!, where you can pick and choose what you see—and what you don’t see—every time you log on.
My Yahoo! is located at my.yahoo.com. Easy to remember, eh? The first time you visit My Yahoo!, you must register for the service and customize your page. After that, each time you go to My Yahoo!, you’ll see your Yahoo! page exactly as you configured it.

After you’ve signed on, you see the generic My Yahoo! page shown in Figure. This is an okay page—it gives you an idea of what you can do with My Yahoo!—but the whole point of using My Yahoo! is to create a customized page, which you can do quite easily.

My Y Yahoo! can display a variety of different types of content, each in its own module. It’s up to you to choose which content modules you want to display. To select which modules are displayed on your My Yahoo! page, click the Choose Content button. When the Personalize Page Content page appears, put a check mark next to each module you want to display and uncheck those topics you don’t want to display.yahoo!

Most modules let you customize the content that is displayed within; for example, you can create your own list of stocks to display in the Portfolios module and choose what types of news are displayed in the My Front Page Headlines module.

Although the specific customization is different for each module, the general steps you take are the same. Click the Edit button on the module you want to customize; when the next page appears, read the instructions carefully and then make the appropriate choices. This may include selecting or deselecting topics, choosing how many headlines are displayed, entering stock tickers for your portfolio, and so on.

After you’ve decided on all your content, you need to arrange that content on your page. By default, My Yahoo! uses a two-column layout, with the left column narrower than the right. You can also choose a three-column layout, with a big center column; just click the Choose Layout button to make your selection. You can then assign different content modules to different areas of the page.

If you don’t like the default colors of the My Yahoo! page, you can choose from a variety of other color schemes. Just click the Change Colors button, then choose from one of the predefined color themes—or click the Customize Them link to choose your own colors for each page element.

Your My Yahoo! is now complete—and ready to be changed again whenever you feel like it!
