When a new tab is opened, open -> "The new tab page".

Thanks.

There should be a setting "Configure new tab behaviour" in User Configuration | Policies |  Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Internet Explorer

If you are on Win7 or 2008r2, you might be affected by this https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/980959

I do not see "Configure new tab behaviour" under User Configuration | Policies |  Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Internet Explorer

I create a new GPP to create a REG_DWORD NEWTABACTION=2 under hklm>software>policies>microsoft>internet explorer>main but I do not see the "The New Tab Page" is being selected as well.

Please advise again.  

Thanks,
