Hello all,

How can create a reg key to change default internet explorer homepage.
I created a reg key in HKCU\.....\Main

I tried to change in HKLM still the same.
We want to deploy that key over 1500 systems.

IE is individual by user so you may only be able to set it for the current user.

As per Tahir's comment
My preferred method would be to use Group Policy Preferences to set the necessary Registry values. (Others may disagree.)
I also agree with it, also prefer it over IE preferences. My suggestion is a duplicate of what he said
