If you are on 2008R2 or Windows 7 (IE 7+) there is a GPO setting for this registry value:

Tab: Administrative Template (inetres.admx)
Policy Path:  Windows Components\Internet Explorer

Computer Policy         Line 1666
HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main!AllowWindowReuse

User Policy:               Line 1667
HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main!AllowWindowReuse

Yes, this registry key should do the job for you.

I know the registry key does the job, which means I have to do that on a single computer and is not an efficient way to do it.

That is why I asked about the ADM. There is no GPO Setting for AllowWindowReuse.

I am using IE 8.

Thanks,

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

 
Tony MassaCommented:
The registry value you're looking for exists in the INETRES.admx file:

The policy name is "TURN OFF CONFIGURATION OF WINDOW REUSE"

Ohh, so you guys are saying that I have to modify the original and built-in ADM template ?

Tony MassaCommented:
No. The policy exists already. It's just not the name you're looking for.

Tony MassaCommented:
If you don't see the policy "Turn off Configuratiin of Window Reuse" try editing the GPO from a 2008R2 server. The ADMX files may need to be updated.

hmm, I am confused.

What about the comments on 38862765 "look on this portal, where it shows to customize the adm temp" and 38863528 "The registry value you're looking for exists in the INETRES.admx file:"

I am lost.

Thanks for your help

Tony MassaCommented:
My point was that the default inetres.admx (IE GPO settings) contains the policy to manage the registry key you are looking for.

Edit the GPO you want to configure:

If you want to manage the policy by computer, navigate to "Computer Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer"Computer Policy PathIf you want to manage the policy by user, navigate to "User Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer"

Find "Turn off configuration of Window Reuse" and configure it to your needs.

Here is the policy details:Policy Details

Ohhh, I got it. I was looking for the setting Allow Window Reuse.
Thank you so much. Sorry for the confusion.
