Recently I overcome an issue with Internet Explorer where Connections Tab on Internet Explorer Options is missing. I searched online and I could able to restore with the help of an article that i don't remember now. But I would like to thank the guy who had wrote that article.

I thought of sharing this here and could be helpful for those who are in need.

To restore Connections Tab, open Notepad and type following text and save it as ".reg" file as an extension.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"ConnectionsTab"=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"ConnectionsTab"=-

For some reason you would like to disable Connections Tab, the following registry setting will help.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"ConnectionsTab"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"ConnectionsTab"=dword:00000001

Thanks,
