Navigates the WebBrowser control to the home page of the current user.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public void GoHome()

ExceptionCondition
ObjectDisposedException

This WebBrowser instance is no longer valid.

InvalidOperationException

A reference to an implementation of the IWebBrowser2 interface could not be retrieved from the underlying ActiveX WebBrowser control.

You can use this method to implement a Home button similar to the one in Internet Explorer. The user can specify a home page in the Internet Options dialog box, which is available from Control Panel or from the Tools menu in Internet Explorer.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the GoHome method to implement a Home button for the WebBrowser control similar to the one in Internet Explorer. This example requires that your form contains a WebBrowser control called webBrowser1 and a Button control called ButtonHome.

For the complete code example, see How to: Add Web Browser Capabilities to a Windows Forms Application.

// Navigates webBrowser1 to the home page of the current user. 
private void homeButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    webBrowser1.GoHome();
}
