Change the tab page in IE9

By Patrick Stafford
Monday, 18 April 2011

Tech TrickInternet Explorer 9 is the newest browser around, and no doubt there are many entrepreneurs already using it as part of their daily routine.


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.
