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, 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.


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

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs
