I've seen some similar topics on this, but nothing answering my question so apologies if it has been answered somewhere else.
I have users running Windows XP SP3 + IE8. I am defining home page settings via group policy. One of our managers wants his department to have two homepages open up when the users open IE8. I define this by going to the following settings:
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Disable changing home page settings > Homepage 1
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Disable changing secondary home page settings > Homepage 2
After applying this GPO, Homepage 1 loads up just fine whenever I start IE8 on one of the target machines. Homepage 2 however is not opening up when the browser is opened. However, if I click the Home button once inside IE8 it will open both homepages just fine.
How can I get both of them to come up at browser start?
In order to help you resolve the issue, please check the following thread. (Reference to Bruce-Liu suggestion)
GPO for multiple homepage
Please make sure a setting with a solid green underline or a green circle is enabled, you can enable these settings within a preference item by pressing F6 keys. The preference extension applies this setting's value to the user or computer, as shown in the following image.
