Yahoo is my home page. Normally it shows a few news items in several categories. But now it shows a never-ending list of news items that seem to be in no particular order or categories. If I scroll down, it just keeps showing more. I don't see any kind of customize or reset button that allows me to change it back to the standard/default view. Help!

Windows 7 Professional. Chrome browser.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

You've mentioned nothing about your operating system, browser, or anything about what you've tried to fix it, so I'm voting to close this question as "off-topic". – user3697 Oct 25 '12 at 23:18
Can you provide more detail? Like what browser you're using and whether you're signed in or not. I do not see the same Yahoo homepage experience. – OnenOnlyWalter Oct 26 '12 at 14:32

Chrome web store has an extension called as "Page Eraser", using which parts of any page can be erased and saved. Whenever you open the page again, those particular parts won't show up.

Well, if you are using Chrome then there is a nice Chrome extension out there. Using AdBlock Plus will get rid of all these unwanted ads and news feeds automatically. If you want to add any new entry manually, then you can simply do that by right clicking on it and then on the Block element option.
