    New Tabs open Blank

    Aloha all. Minor issue, but annoying...Vista Home Premium, IE7. When I open
    a new tab I get the Blank Tab page. I have checked the Internet Tools item
    for Open Home Page instead of a Blank page, but no joy. How can I get a new
    tab to open to my home page...like I checked?
    Thanks all!

    Internet Options > in the "Tabs" section click the "Settings" button > check
    the "Open home page for new tabs instead of black page" checkbox > click any

    I already did that, and the new tab still comes up blank. Any other ideas?
    This worked fine under XP, but isn't working under Vista.

    Homepage is set to Yahoo. When I open IE, it opens to Yahoo, but when I open
    a new tab, it opens blank (Vista Home Premium).
    Thanks.

    When the blank page opens, check the box that says something like "Don't
    show this again"

    He has. In this instance, it's *actually* called "I have checked the
    Internet Tools item ...".

    Re: New Tabs open Blank

    So is there no way to open a new tab to the home page in Visa Home Premium?
    I could do this in XP no problem.
    Thanks.
