I have a question to ask you.

How do you get Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) and Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) to "automatically" load the last website(s)/webpage(s) when you open IE8 or IE9 from the last session when you closed it?

Yes, I can see in IE8 it can be done "manually" at the start of the next IE8 session by clicking on "Tools" -> "Reopen Last Browsing Session". I forgot about IE9 since I have not used the newer IE9 lately -- I believe it has the same "manual" function as IE8.

If neither IE version does not have this inherent "automatic" "reopen last browsing session" feature setting in IE8 or IE9, then is there some add-on that can be installed or even some third party standalone installer program that will allow this "automatic" functionality in either or both IE8 and IE9 to reopen the last session's website(s)/webpage(s) visited?    

Please reply.

Thank you!

The closest thing I could find was changing your homepage to about:Tabs so you would automatically have the screen with the option reopening when you open IE.  I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help!

@ proxenia:

Hello. Nice to meet you.

Thanks for your answer. I see this works.

************************************************************************
@ anyone:

Hello. Can anyone else suggest a third party program or a component of a third party program to install that adds options or features to IE8 or IE9 in order to achieve this too?

Please reply.

Thank you!

I have not tried this add-on, but it says it can open the last closed tab for you:  IE Open Last Closed Tab.

@ proxenia:

Hello again. Thank you very much for your latest comment.

Your latest comment is the answer and solution to this question/thread.

I have tested it and it works perfectly! It is not obtrusvie in that is always displays like homepage dialers/tabs for Firefox. It is hidden in IE and doesn't display instantly leaving your homepage to what YOU WANT, however not that difficult to get to and open either. It has very customizable features and can store tons of dialers/tabs. YOU couldn't have done a better job! PERFECT!!! THANK YOU!!!
