Change the tab page in IE9
But some may not like the fact IE9 displays a summary of your most-visited sites whenever they create a new tab. Thankfully, there’s a way to change it.
First, go to the gear symbol at the upper-right hand side of the screen, click it and then press on “internet options”.
Click the “settings” button under the “tabs” section at the very bottom. A new box will appear. In the middle of that box, you should see a drop-down menu when the text above it saying, “when anew tab is opened, open”.
Then, you can choose what site you want to use – a blank page, the new tab page or your first home page.
If you ever want to change back, put “about:tabs” in the address bar.
