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,

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

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

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

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

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
