Changing Internet Explorer Welcome Tab URL

Once upon a time, a malicious trojan invaded my computer and automatically sets registry values to Internet Explorer and every time you open a tab, www.114116.info opens.



Anyway, too good to be true.

The malicious code gave me an idea to tweak Internet Explorer Tabs with my own url address!

For example, I want to have a custom address like Google or Yahoo every time I click the new Tab. Great idea Right?!

Custom IE Tab URL Address

Launch regedit.exe or Registry Editor using the Start Menu Search or Run Window (Win Key + R) and go to this location

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs

locate the “tabs” value name, and change the value to whatever web address that you want e.g. http://mail.yahoo.com


If the registry hack doesn’t work, try the user registry hive

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs
