Check out this and see if it's what you want:

IE7: New Tab Opens Home Page

I don't have IE 7 installed and did not read info so may not even be relevant.

Will stick a quick 2 cents worth in here. IE 7 is still in Beta which means there is a possibly of problems until it is released in its final form. Even then, it may have problems as you probably have noted from all the IE versions to date. It is recommended that those, who do not know how to recover from a severe Beta problem, use Beta software on their primary machine. I hope your friend was not so unlucky as to have one of the bad problems that can occur.

i've had very few problems with ie7....and most of the ones that i've had have been with 3rd party software (sophos antivirus is not too fond of letting it store cookies...i don't know why...because #1...sophos doesn't interact with cookies #2...ie6 stores the cookies in the same place...but...ie6 doesn't have a problem...wwweeeeeiiirrdd)...it's nice...the tabbed browsing is good...i like the layout...and i've really gotten used to it..

Hi dsenette:

Will keep that in mind about uninstalling/reinstalling IE 7 to get the link to work. By the time I get Internet service to my FEMA mobile home, IE 7 will probably be out of Beta. :whistling: I have it installed on my new Dell and love it, but not enough to give up my Firefox. :blink:

Cheers...

That is a darn good suggestion, but FEMA frowns on moving those things. Some have tried and will probably be connecting from Federal prison. :whistling:
