IE8 GPO - Multiple Home Pages

    Question

  • 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?
