How to Change the Home Page URL on SharePoint 2010 Team Site

I have a SharePoint 2010 team site that I didn't want to use the "Wiki Home Page" option and didn't want to turn on publishing.  I simply wanted to change the default home page URL from http://site/default.aspx to http://site/pages/home.aspx.​  (This home page uses a tabbed interface for an app-like feeling.)

I found this post​ which provided the Powershell to make the change:

Add-PsSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell 

$w = get-spweb http://yoursite

$r = $w.RootFolder

$r.WelcomePage = "Pages/Home.aspx"

$r.Update()

$w.Dispose()

It worked beautifully!  Now, when using the breadcrumbs, or the Site Name as a link back to the home page of the site, it always goes to this home page.
