Internet Explorer New Tab Feature and Settings
Posted on 2012-09-06
I am running Internet Explorer version 9.0.8112.16421 on Windows 7. My domain controller is SBS 2011.
When I press the New Tab to come up with a new Explorer Window, I am taken to a blank page and no previous site exists to choose from. On other computers, when I press the New Tab button, I see my previous and most accessed web sites and I can choose from one of those previous sites. But, for some reason this particular copy of IE does not show me the previous sites.
If I go to “Internet Options | Advanced”, press the “Restore Advanced Settings” button, press the “Reset” button, press “Reset” again, press the “Close” button, and then restart Internet Explorer, I then get a prompt by Internet Explorer as soon as it starts. The prompt asks me to:
1. Use recommended security and compatibility settings.
2. Don’t use recommended settings.
I choose option number 1 and press OK. Now, when I press the New Tab I am given a choice of my Most Popular Sites and I can choose one of them.
Why do I have to do this each day that I log in, and how can I prevent IE from losing the New Tab settings?
