For those of you still using Internet Explorer.

This is the page I see when I create a new Tab in IE.


The other day I accidently click on the Remove this page button in the corner of one of the items on this page.

Unfortunately, it was a link to a  testing page I use all the time.  Now I’ve done this before, about a year ago, so I know that that link will never, ever appear in the list again. 

I knew there was a registry hack that could bring back the item.  I took me awhile to find it, here it is.


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing\NewTabPage\Exclude

Note, delete any entries in this section.  There is no readable information in the keys so you are working blind.

Don’t blame me if this fix breaks your computer.  You should know how risky registry hacks are by now.
