    How to stop opening a new tab page in IE

    hi,

    In my Internet Explorer 8, when I open new tabs, by default the browser opens a "new tab page" or about:Tabs. Then it asks "what do you want to do next" and offers certain options.
    I just don't want the tab welcome screen to appear on every tab page, I would rather prefer the blank tab. How to stop opening a new tab page in IE8 ?

    any ideas.........kindly suggest !!

    cause - when you open a new tab in Internet Explorer 8 Beta, the New Tab page (about:Tabs) opens by default.

    solution - if you want to start with a blank page or your home page when opening new tab, you can perform these steps -

    1. Open IE 8 >> Click Tools >> select Internet Options.

    2. Under Tabs section, click Settings.

    3. In When a new tab is opened, open:, choose an option from the drop down box. The available options are:
    • A blank page
    • The new tab page (default)
    • Your first home page


    4. Click OK >> OK.

    Do this -

    1. Access the Internet Options dialog box.
    • If the menu bar is visible, click "Tools" - select "Internet Options".
    • If the Command Bar is visible, click "Tools" - select "Internet Options".
    • If neither are available, try typing Alt + T then O.


    2. The "Internet Options" dialog box appears. Underneath "Tabs", click the "Settings" button.

    3. The "Tabbed Browsing Settings" dialog box appears. Underneath "When a new tab is opened, open" click the pull-down and choose from the following options:
    * A blank page
    * The new tab page
    * Your first home page

    4. Click "OK" on the dialog boxes to save your settings.
