How to change your BlackBerry browser startup page between thumbnail and list view

BlackBerry Startup Page
By Adam Zeis on 18 Jun 2012 04:06 pm EDT

Customizations all around! When it comes to BlackBerry, there are soooo many tweaks you can do on your device to truly make it your own. One (of many) that resides in the BlackBerry browser is the ability to change your startup page between List View and Thumbnail View. So depending on what you fancy, you'll have easy access to your favorite pages right off the bat when you fire up the browser - either in a text-only list format, or fun-to-tap thumbnail view. Keep reading and we'll show you just how easy it is to pick the one that fits you best!

Using List View and Thumbbail View for your browser startup page

In your BlackBerry browser, press the Menu key then choose Options.

Click the dropdown next to Startup Page and choose either Thumbnail View or List View. Alternatively you can also set a startup page (like!) if you always want your browser to load a specific site rather than a list.

Browser Startup Page 


Thumbnail View looks like this:

Browser Thumbnail View

Your most recent pages will be shown as icons along with the page title

List View looks like this:

Browser List View

Your most recent pages will be shown as a bookmark-style list.

That's all there is to it! Which one do you use and/or like best? Let us know in the comments and be sure to hit up the CrackBerry forums for more help/discussion. 



I guess this works for OS other than OS5.

Wishing and hoping that BB10 is released SOON...


omg, thanks for this...


Awesome, had no idea!


Very nice! I also had no idea. I will use it for a while and see how well I can do with it. thanks!

All for the list view!


This has completely transformed my internet screen! Thanks A Lot!!


play book needs this option


Playbook has this option, it comes with thumbnail as default. But it can be changed to list.


Definitely prefer the list view. In alphabetical order, too. Nice.


I like this view better than list. Thx for the tip!


No way ! You're on the Untappd too ! We should lobby for them to make a BlackBerry dedicated app !


Since OS 6, but I prefer List View.


Both the list and this view only shows the last 9 bookmarks. How can I change it to show all the bookmarks on the first page?


Thanks! just like the playbook. Looks waaay better then list view.


cool! just switched to thumbnail view and i love it

Any idea how to delete a bookmark?
